Who's getting document requests from House Dems in new probe

Spicer was one of 81 individuals and entities that have been requested by the House panel to share information and documents on the Trump administration Monday. "And we'll fight where we need and we'll co-operate where we need, but the desperation shows".

The new investigation also follows an announcement by the House intelligence panel that it is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election that brought Trump to power, and Trump's foreign business interests.

And most of "The View" co-hosts greeted all of these developments with glee. "The Counsel's Office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time".

Wikileaks published emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and released them during the 2016 campaign, causing political embarrassment to Mrs Clinton and her campaign team.

Only if Democrats can build what they believe to be a strong public record against the president - one that even a significant portion of the president's strongest advocates cannot deny - then Nadler will consider moving forward with impeachment, he has indicated.

In a letter to House Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), White House Counsel Pat A. Cipollone said the committee request for the information was "without legal support, clearly premature, and suggests a breach of the constitutionally required accommodation process".

Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney of U.S. President Donald Trump, is flanked by his attorneys Lanny Davis (L) and Mike Monico (R) as he testifies before a House Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Feb. 27, 2019.

"The White House's argument defies the Constitutional separation of powers, decades of precedent before this Committee, and just plain common-sense", he said in a statement Tuesday.

The exchange was predictable, with both sides using the exchange of letters for political means, and in anticipation of nearly certain judicial proceedings.

Numerous people who receive requests were asked about hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who alleged she had an affair with Donald Trump.

He also asserted without explanation that when Congress tried to get information from the Obama administration, they were turned down.

Others maintained the wide-ranging request would bolster Trump's argument that the probe was a vendetta against him.

The committee voted February 26 to authorize its first round of subpoenas, which were sent to Attorney General William P. Barr, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex M. Azar II requesting documents about the Administration's family separation policy at the southern border. The timing decision is still up in the air, as is an overarching communications plan - selling impeachment to the American public, or more specifically those Americans who don't already support impeachment.whatever the stated rationale, impeachment is on.

But the request affirmed the shadow that current and former staffers still live under.
