House Judiciary Committee to request documents from 60 individuals connected to Trump

Somehow I picture Democrats getting fresh documents from the White House and smelling each sheet like we did in grade school when they handed out mimeographed tests. (I realize that’s a really old reference. If I start sounding too much like Paul Harvey, please let me know. I’ll throw a few f-bombs in with my fond reminiscences about playing Pong and watching Gerald Ford fall down stairs and shit.)

George Stephanopoulos welcomed House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler to ABC’s This Week earlier today to apprise us of Congress’ next steps in their shoulder-burying rectal exam of the pr*sident, and it sounds like things are proceeding apace.

ABC News:

“Tomorrow, we will be issuing document requests to over 60 different people and individuals from the White House to the Department of Justice, Donald Trump, Jr., Allen Weisselberg, to begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power,” Nadler said on “This Week” Sunday.

“Do you think the president obstructed justice?” asked ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

“Yes, I do,” Nadler said.

That sound you hear is about 60 shredders warming up. Maybe? (Really, I can’t imagine them being that brazen.)

Still, House Dems now smell a lot of blood in the water, and they’re going to follow that scent:

“What we learned from the Cohen testimony is that he directly implicated the president in — in various crimes, both while seeking the office of president and while in the White House,” Nadler said on “This Week.”

“The Republicans spent two years shielding the president from any proper accountability … [T]hey threatened to impeach people in Justice Department, they threatened the — the Mueller investigation. It’s our job to protect the rule of law. That’s our core function. And to do that we are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption of — into corruption and into obstruction of justice,” Nadler said.

Happy hunting, folks.
