House Democrats Are Preparing To Unleash Investigation Hell On Trump

The list of areas that Republicans expect Democrats to investigate if they take back the House has leaked, and it numbers more than 100 items. Trump‘s White House is totally unprepared for this level of oversight.

Axios obtained the Republican list of likely Democratic investigative targets that include:

– President Trump’s tax returns

Trump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution’s emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization

Trump‘s dealings with Russia, including the president’s preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin

– The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels

James Comey‘s firing

Trump‘s firing of U.S. attorneys

Trump‘s proposed transgender ban for the military

– Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s business dealings

White House staff’s personal email use

– Cabinet secretary travel, office expenses, and other misused perks

– Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago

Jared Kushner‘s ethics law compliance

– Dismissal of members of the EPA board of scientific counselors

– The travel ban

– Family separation policy

– Hurricane response in Puerto Rico

– Election security and hacking attempts

White House security clearances

Trump is unprepared for this onslaught of oversight

The list above didn’t come from guesswork. It came from actual investigative requests that House Democrats have already made, so it presents more than a reliable roadmap of where Democrats are likely to go if they win the House.

Unlike what Republicans used their investigative powers for during the Obama administration, investigating Fox News and talk radio conspiracy theories, Democrats have several current investigations of Trump both civil and criminal that justify serious congressional oversight. The Trump White House is woefully understaffed and not prepared in any way for what is about to hit them if Democrats win in November.

These investigations matter because what they uncover could lead to impeachment and the destruction of the Trump presidency.

The investigative process is a critical step in the process of holding Trump accountable.

Many Trump critics want him impeached, but he can’t be impeached without evidence, and that proof is going to come either from the Special Counsel’s investigation and/or congressional investigations.

House Democrats are preparing to unleash oversight hell, and Trump has no idea what is coming his way.
