Trump: 'No Reason' to Comply with 'Very Partisan' Congressional Investigations

Robert Mueller’s investigation may be over…????...but Congress, particularly House Democrats still have lingering questions for President Trump.????However, in an interview with the Washington Post, the President says he sees “no reason” for his administration... ????...past or present to assist in ongoing Congressional investigations that he called “obviously very partisan”.????Trump told the paper that he was “transparent” with Mueller’s probe, by not exerting executive privilege on his attorneys, which would have barred them from testifying.????Former White House counsel Don McGahn was issued a subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee, who want him to testify in May.????While no call has been made yet by the White House on the use of executive privilege, sources told the Post the administration is leaning that way…????...and President Trump said “I don’t want people testifying to a party, because this is what they’re doing if they do this.”????Congressional committees aren’t just seeking follow-up answers to Russia investigation questions…????Former White House security clearance official Carl Kline risks being held in contempt of Congress, after he was instructed to ignore a subpoena…????...seeking his testimony on how security clearance recommendations were allegedly ignored for some Trump officials.????The Treasury Department also missed another deadline for handing Congress Trump’s tax returns.????In the post-Mueller report world, there appears to be a growing, figurative stone wall between the White House and the Capitol.
