House Democrats spent 2018 chomping at the bit to retake power.
Having retaken the House of Representatives in November, they’re now poised to go after President Trump like never before.
And Speaker Pelosi just fired the first shots at President Trump with this stunning legal attack.
Democrats hate President Trump.
And after two years of him undoing President Obama’s agenda, to say nothing of his humiliating defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016, Democrats in Congress have been eager to settle the score with Trump.
With Democrats retaking the House of Representatives in November, they now have an opportunity to go after the President in a way they never could have before.
This week, Nancy Pelosi just fired the open rounds of a new war with the President when the House of Representatives decided to go after the President’s children.
The Washington Examiner reports, “House Democrats probing allegations that the Trump presidential campaign worked with Russian operatives to win the 2016 election plan to issue their first subpoena to Donald Trump Jr., according to a top lawmaker.”
The subpoena against Trump Jr. will be the first of what is expected to be a long trail of congressional actions directed at President Trump, his family, and his businesses.
Congressional Democrats confirmed that Trump Jr. is their first target as well, with Democrat Jackie Speier (D-CA), a major member of the House Intelligence Committee, telling reporters that the first member of Trump’s inner circle the committee would target would be the President’s son.
Headed by liberal Democrat Adam Schiff of California, the House Intelligence Committee is expected to devote a considerable amount of time targeting President Trump’s friends and family members over the course of 2019 and 2020.
Schiff himself believes that several of the President’s allies who testified to the committee over the past two years committed perjury.
Speier backed up those allegations this week by likewise claiming that “There are a number of persons that testified before the committee that I feel were not telling the truth.”
While Special Counsel Robert Mueller is expected to conclude his work this year, House Democrats are prepared to waste no time in letting Mueller come forward with his findings before attacking the President directly.
The House Judiciary Committee also intends to target the President’s inner circle, and the two committees may soon come into conflict with one another as Democrats compete over who gets the honor of working to destroy the President.
Both President Trump and his children deny any allegations of collusion with the Russians to rig the 2016 election and defeat Hillary Clinton.
But that won’t stop House Democrats from spending the next 18 months from investigating every aspect of the President’s life and business connections.
The full scope of the Democrats’ planned investigation into Trump and his family and allies has yet to be revealed.
But the drive to bring the President down has already begun in earnest, with Pelosi’s opening salvos signaling a new era in Washington.
