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.
