White House says Congress has no 'legitimate role' in investigating Trump, rejects document demands

WH says House cannot investigate a PresidentThe White House told lawmakers Wednesday that Congress doesn't have the power to carry out a "pseudo law enforcement investigation" of President Donald Trump, rejecting demands for information about his efforts to thwart the special counsel investigation that clouded the first two years of his administration.

The refusal came in a letter Wednesday from White House Counsel Pat Cipollone to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. Cipollone said the administration would not cooperate with what it sees as an unprecedented overreach by politically motivated lawmakers seeking to replicate an already exhaustive and concluded special counsel investigation into Russia and the president's conduct.

Nadler's committee "has no legitimate role" in collecting materials to investigate Trump, Cipollone said. He suggested that lawmakers are using their investigative power to "harass political opponents or to pursue an unauthorized 'do-over' of exhaustive law enforcement investigations conducted by the Department of Justice."
