White House Refuses House Judiciary Committee Request for Documents

HeadlineMay 16, 2019
H6 house judiciary committee trump obstruction justice documents

The White House says it won’t meet a request by the House Judiciary Committee to turn over documents in a sweeping investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice. In a letter to House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone accused Democrats of attempting a “do-over” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump. Congressmember Nadler accused Cipollone of “claiming that the President is a king.” Nadler said he was considering holding Trump administration officials who refuse to testify in contempt, and may levy “very large” fines against anyone defying a congressional subpoena.
