Adam Schiff announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia





(CNN)House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions.

Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration."

"That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress.

In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia's actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump's team, as well as an examination of "whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates."

Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Trump or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations.

Schiff's announcement is the most detailed look yet into how congressional Democrats will investigate Trump's finances and possible ties to foreign entities, and how Democrats are sure to continue probing Trump and his team well after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had concluded.
Trump reacted Wednesday to Schiff's announcement by slamming the California Democrat and saying Schiff has "no basis to do that."

"He's just a political hack trying to build a name for himself," Trump said in the Roosevelt Room Wednesday after announcing his new nominee to be World Bank president. "It's called presidential harassment and it is unfortunate."

Trump's comments followed his State of the Union speech Tuesday in which he warned Democrats against undertaking "ridiculous partisan investigations."

Schiff responded to Trump's attack on Twitter, saying: "We're going to do our job and won't be distracted or intimidated by threats or attacks.

Fox News Host Slams GOP Outrage Over Donald Trump Investigations: 'It’s Not Like Republicans Sat On Their Hands When Barack Obama Was President'

Republicans have expressed ire about a series of investigations launched by Democrats.

February 09, 2019

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Friday criticized as hypocritical Republicans who have expressed outrage at Democrat investigations into the Trump administration.

In Friday's edition of Outnumbered, host Wallace said that investigating administration policy was a key part of any congressional party's duties of oversight.

His comments came during a break in Friday's House judicial committee hearings, in which Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was grilled by Democrat panel members about his conduct towards special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into allegations of Russian interference.

Wallace said he it found it "kind of rich that Republicans are so outraged that there would be this kind of a hearing of the other party's president and administration."

"You know, it's not like Republicans sat on their hands when Barack Obama was president," Wallace said. "They investigated Benghazi, they investigated Fast & Furious, they investigated the IRS, and you know, look, those were all legitimate issues to investigate. Sometimes they found some things, sometimes they didn't find things."

Wallace was referring to investigations launched by Republican lawmakers when they controlled both chambers of congress during the Obama administration into issues including the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, the probe into the so-called "gunwalking" stings by Arizona ATF agents, and the investigation into IRS practices of screening of political groups applying for tax exempt status.

Wallace remarked that when Republicans "have oversight of a branch of Congress or a house of Congress and they're investigating a Democratic president, they're gonna make life difficult for them, and now the Democrats are in control of the House and have the control of these committees," he said. "That's the way it works."

After seizing control of the House in November's mid-terms, Democrats launched a series of probes into the Trump administration's foreign policy, immigration policy, and more.
House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff last week announced that the panel was launching a fresh probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and whether the Trump administration has attempted to cover up evidence of collusion.
In his State of the Union speech earlier in the week, Trump denounced "ridiculous partisan investigations" into his administration.

Republican Representative Doug Collins, who sits on the now minority Republican group on the judiciary committee, denounced the decision to question Whitaker Friday as "political theatre."

Wallace also criticized Whitaker for claiming in January that Mueller's probe was winding up.
Whitaker "would be wise, and I think he probably realizes this now," Wallace said, "if he said nothing about the Mueller investigation in public."

Chris Wallace should know the difference between actual events like Benghazi and Gun running and a fishing expedition “because Trump”...

See, in America we are supposed to investigate crimes or events not individuals. If you missed the hearings yesterday, did you see Jim Jordan’s line of questions?
