The President reacted to his worsening plight with a vehement defense on Sunday, after a week in which testimony from his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen deepened his political vulnerability and ahead of the expected filing soon of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
What do I need to know right now?.
Nadler's talk with ABC was the clearest indication yet that Democrats have made a decision to impeach Trump and are now simply doing the legwork involved in making that happen.
If Mueller finds Trump played a role in a conspiracy with Moscow to boost his chances of winning the election or committed obstruction of justice to try to impede the probe - allegations Trump denies - the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives could launch impeachment proceedings against the president.
It is not clear how much President Trump can withhold federal funds to institutions without congressional action, or how long the idea has been discussed at the White House.
The panel hopes to review documents from Trump's sons, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, the Justice Department, as well as former White House chief-of-staff John Kelly and dozens of others.
President Donald Trump on Sunday said he is "an innocent man", and also claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is "illegal".

There is no smoking gun when it comes to the question of Russian Federation collusion. But the evidence so far shows that a broad range of Trump associates had Russia-related contacts during the 2016 presidential campaign and transition period, and several lied about the communications. The pardon discussions occurred while Mr. Ryan was working alongside lawyers for Mr. Trump to review files seized from Mr. Cohen's premises by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to determine whether they were protected by attorney-client privilege.
And he said he was present in mid-2016 when Republican campaign consultant Roger Stone called Trump to inform him that WikiLeaks was about to publish damaging information on Clinton that it got from Russian hackers.
The President also used his speech at CPAC to knock back accusations that his firing of Comey was an attempt to shut down the Russian Federation investigation and therefore fits the definition of obstruction of justice.
Republicans accused Nadler and fellow Democrats of lining up a fall back investigation to pursue the President in case Mueller does not find offenses that rise to the level of impeachment. "He fired (former FBI Director James) Comey in order to stop the Russian thing, as he told NBC News".
The law says the treasury chief "shall furnish" the requested information to members of the committee for them to examine behind closed doors.
Nadler said his investigation will go beyond allegations of the Trump campaign's collusion with Russian Federation, even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating the allegations, proves there were links between the Trump election campaign and Russian Federation. He also says Cohen lied to get a lighter sentence in NY.
When will it all wrap up? It's unclear. Then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said in January that the probe is "close to being completed", the first official sign that Mueller's investigation may be wrapping up.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
