Where the investigations related to President Trump stand

Some Trump allies say NY poses the biggest risk of boring into his family finances, a "red line" the president has warned prosecutors not to cross.

"The House Judiciary Committee has launched a road map to impeachment and set in motion unlimited, unrestrained harassment of Trump associates", said one official who served on the 2016 Trump campaign.

Mr Trump praised the conservative movement, saying "Our movement and our future in our country is unlimited".

"If anyone thinks these dangling investigations are going to be a stalking horse for a continuation of the Mueller investigation, they're dreaming", Ray said.

Cases now partially or fully in the hands of prosecutors outside of Mueller's team include those involving President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen and longtime Trump ally Roger Stone. Republicans have a narrow majority in the Senate.

And when Nadler gained a seat in the US Congress in 1992, he continued to pressure Trump, successfully suppressing the use of federal funds in support of the project. He outlined what he claimed were potentially illegal business dealings at Trump's real estate company, as well as efforts to negotiate a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow through the 2016 campaign.

Ray said there were "substantial constitutional questions" around ensuring that the president can conduct the affairs of his office without the kind of interference that such probes bring.

He claimed incorrectly that Cohen had testified to a congressional committee last week to reduce his three-year prison term. The chairman, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, said afterward that he wanted to call in several people mentioned repeatedly by Cohen.

The committee's jurisdiction touches on all parts of government.

The committee is seeking details about "Trump Tower Moscow (also known as the "Moscow Project") or any other proposed or possible real estate development in the Russian Federation by Donald Trump or the Trump Organization from January 1, 2015 to the present".

Their demands came just hours after Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler issued document requests to 81 people or entities in the Trump orbit, on everything from hirings and firings to pardons and presidential emoluments to negotiations with Russian Federation before, during and after the election.

Nadler said he believes the president has obstructed justice during his two years in office.

Mueller also is looking into whether Trump engaged in obstruction of justice by trying to impede or shut down the Russian Federation investigation, first when it was conducted by the FBI and later after the special counsel was appointed in May 2017. William Barr has since been confirmed as attorney general. But for now, Neal is taking it slow. "Can you imagine if we left interest rates where they were?"

Last month, Neal held a hearing in which experts discussed the authority under current law for Neal to make a request for any tax returns to the treasury secretary. So they'll do anything to get rid of the president.

"Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful", she said. That could mean nearly anything; Schiff's committee can - and most certainly will - investigate Trump for the rest of the president's term. "I still don't know, they don't have to tell me, but I still don't know whether anyone in the Trump administration at the most senior levels ever got a read out". They called on the chief of staff in the White house, Mick Mulvaney, as well as foreign Minister Mike Pompeo, you with detailed information regarding the communication between Trump and the Russian head of state Vladimir Putin.

"But we see it totally different than Republicans", she said.

The Nadler investigation, along with parallel probes into Trump's presidency by the House Oversight and Intelligence committees means that the structure of a political investigation into the President based in Congress is now in place, alongside the legal inquiries led by Mueller and prosecutors in NY and other jurisdictions.

Included in the sampling are 29 percent who said the investigations are not at all likely to produce enough evidence to lead to impeachment and 24 percent who said the investigations are very likely to produce enough evidence to lead to impeachment.

The two committees have worked with House lawyers to figure out the appropriate way to investigate that meeting.

"We're all in love together", he said.
