Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Democrats' Trump probe 'disgraceful'

US President Donald Trump

President Trump has accused Democrats of a witch hunt

"Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful".

The White House says it has received the House Judiciary Committee's letter requesting documents related to the Trump administration, family and business as part of an expanding Russian Federation investigation. He said there would be more requests, which might involve additional people.

The State Department pledged to "work cooperatively with the committees". "It's all a hoax. a political hoax", Trump said at a White House event, as he suggested he would cooperate with the probe. The panel is sending document requests to 81 people linked to the president and his associates.

Cobb said he often endorsed a different strategy than more combative lawyers on Trump's team and often clashed with them over legal strategy, advocating dignified cooperation with Mueller's team.

Trump told reporters after Nadler's probe was announced that "I cooperate all the time with everybody".

"I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is", said Cohen in his opening statement.

He also pointed out that in the indictments to date, including of Russian hackers and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, there was "no link to Trump or the campaign". But the House probes go far beyond collusion. The panel will also look into corruption claims. Sanders, who is the daughter of 2008/2016 GOP presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, also described the investigation as an attempt to hide Democrats' desire to kill babies, promote socialism and "bankrupt America".

The White House press secretary also claimed that Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, is fearful that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation won't reveal anything that's damaging to the president.

"Equally, we must protect and respect the work of special counsel [Robert] Mueller, but we can not rely on others to do the investigative work for us". From the White House, Nadler wants a swath of information tied to Russia demanding the White House provide information about contacts with Comey before he was sacked as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, details about the firing of Jeff Sessions as attorney general and documents about misleading statements given to the press in 2017 when it was first revealed that Trump Jr. met with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

White House had received the letter and that "the counsel's office and relevant White House officials will review it and respond at the appropriate time".

Eric Trump, and Jared Kushner all being on the list of the 81 persons and entities asked to submit information on Monday, one name from the Trump family is glaringly absent. Collins says it is becoming more and more obvious that the Mueller report will show no collusion which is why House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff are investigating everything possible. The committee expects some people to produce right away, and others may eventually face subpoenas, the official said.

Nadler's committee aims to determine whether the Republican president obstructed justice by possibly offering pardons or tampering with witnesses and by ousting perceived enemies, such as former FBI Director James Comey.
