Ex-White House counsel Ty Cobb calls Robert Mueller ‘American hero’

Ex-White House counsel Ty Cobb calls Robert Mueller ‘American hero’

"All the people on the list have given information already", Nadler said, either to Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election or to federal prosecutors for the Southern District of NY in their corruption probe. "And a very justice-oriented person".

Nor was Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr Mueller as special counsel.

Nadler said Monday that House Democrats have "a responsibility to investigate these matters and hold hearings for the public to have all the facts".

"Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee", Nadler said in a statement.

The intelligence committee investigation is one of several probes Democrats have launched in recent weeks as they delve deeper into Trump's political and personal dealings. The move all but guarantees that potentially damaging allegations will follow Trump for months to come as Democrats try to keep them in the public eye.

They are also an indication of the Democrats' current strategy - to flood the administration with oversight requests, keeping Trump and his associates on trial publicly while also playing a long game when it comes to possible impeachment.

Seeking to be ready for the Democratic-led House, more than a dozen lawyers were added to the White House Counsel's Office and a seasoned attorney was added to the communications team to handle questions related to the probes.

He added: "Every time I think about this, I think about that particular issue because I think he really does care about his family, I think he loves his family, and I don't think he wanted his family to go through this". "It's all a hoax".

The unusually strong statement further claimed that "the Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the president".

Son-in-law Jared Kushner and the Trump Organisation's longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, were among the 81 people and organisations - such as the National Rifle Association - receiving letters from the panel's Democratic chairman Jerry Nadler.

His aides had already made that determination, with press secretary Sarah Sanders issuing an acerbic statement late Monday calling the Judiciary Committee probe a "disgraceful and abusive investigation".

■ The House Intelligence Committee is continuing to investigate Russian interference with the 2016 election and possible Russian or other foreign coordination with the Trump campaign.

Letters to other key players include requests for information on the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower attended by Kushner, Trump Jr, now-jailed former campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Russian lawyer reportedly close to the Kremlin, and documents surrounding the termination of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

"Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into exhausted, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of Congress", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Monday.

Last week, Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen in congressional testimony accused the president of committing crimes including campaign finance violations and potential tax fraud. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., said when asked in an interview with CNN Wednesday if he was "OK" with Trump paying hush money to a porn star while in the White House.
