Democrats in the US House of Representatives have begun an extensive investigation of President Donald Trump and his office. The Chamber’s Judiciary Committee requested a number of White House documents and dozens of Trump members on Monday. Among them is his son Donald Trump Junior.
With their newly won majority in the House of Representatives – one of the two congressional chambers – the Democrats have initiated various investigations. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said earlier this weekend that his body would request documents from more than 60 people from Trump’s office. It is about allegations of corruption, abuse of power and obstruction of the judiciary, said Nadler the media.
The Committee calls, for Donald Trump Junior to provide documents related to the dismissal of FBI chief James Comey by the President in May 2017. The list of demands to the White House is also extensive: The government headquarters should, according to the will of the Democrats, issue documents that could turn to possible pardons by the President.
Trump spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Monday that the White House lawyer would go over the letter and respond to it in a “reasonable time”.
