    House Judiciary Committee Hires Trump Legal Critics for Investigations

    The House Judiciary Committee has hired two veteran attorneys, Norm Eisen and Barry Berke, both of whom have been outspoken critics of Donald Trump. The House Judiciary Committee led by Chairman Jerry Nadler, is investigating possible 'white collar' crimes involving Trump, including ethics violations, corruption and possible obstruction of justice. This is separate from those of the Mueller investigation. These investigations are going to be Trump's worst nightmares.

    House Judiciary Committee Hires Trump Legal Critics for Investigations


    Feb. 12, 2019

    WASHINGTON — Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee said on Tuesday that they have retained two elite white collar litigators and prominent legal critics of President Trump to help begin inquiries into some of the most sensitive allegations involving the president, including ethics violations, corruption and possible obstruction of justice.

    The committee’s chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, has not committed to opening a formal impeachment inquiry, but the addition of the two lawyers, Norman L. Eisen and Barry H. Berke, indicates that the Democrats do not intend to wait for the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, to finish his work to begin weighing issues that could ultimately be wrapped up in such a proceeding.

    Moving back and forth between The Hill and the WH is quite common. A think tank or lobbying firm, law firm or PR firm is often the next step in a non-elective career in "federal" Washington.

    Doesn't matter. All they want to do is raise more spin, speculation, hyperbole and innuendo. 2020, remember?

    For the past two years under Republican control of the House, the big 'boogieman' has been Robert Mueller. In fact the real boogieman all along, the serious threat to Trump's future has always been under the purview of the House of Representatives. The republican investigations have been nothing but a sham engineered by the republican controlled House. Things are going to be far different now and all those crimes such as money laundering, racketeering, obstruction of justice and the like will be investigated properly and there will be articles of impeachment drawn up as the investigations wind down.

    You really should go back and look at what the Republican House did...what they investigated. Don't get sucked in by the media and their "boogiemen".

    Under Nunes, they investigated Trump/Russia and found nothing. Then he, and other House committees turned their attention to actions by the Obama administration, such as FISA abuse, the FBI's email investigation, wiretapping, etc. None of that had anything to do with the Mueller investigation. They have conducted zero investigations into Mueller.

    Anyway, the House has no intention of impeaching Trump. They want him to run in 2020.

    No, they want to investigate potential conflicts of interest and criminality.

    I can see why you'd be compelled otherwise.

    LOL! The house investigation was a sham. You have absolutely zero idea what you're talking about.

    Their investigation was going through the motions, the republicans had no intention at all of findihg out anything. Then we had Devin Nunes caught red-handed on his midnight run to the White House. The republicans refused to subpoena people that claimed 'executive privilege' like Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski and even Donald Jr. refused to answer questions. Well, they're all going to be returning for the REAL investigation now and if it's going to take a subpoena to get them there, then those subpoenas are all ready to go out.

    You're right... now they will be nothing but a sham engineered by the Democrat-controlled House.

    shrug...

    They are free to investigate a person in search of a crime. They won't find one. The best they hope for is something that can be spun into an embarrassment for the President.
