Jerry Nadler has been fighting Trump for a long time, about 20 years and 200 pounds to be exact.
Trump used to call him fat Jerry back in the days Nadler tried to stop his developments. Not much has changed since then as Jerry just learned the hard way.
Nadler lost to Trump back in the day, and he is losing now. Get used to it Jerry. From ABC:
The White House is rejecting the House Judiciary committee’s request to turn over documents on a broad range of topics mainly focused on key figures in the 2016 presidential election.
“The White House will not participate in the Committee’s ‘investigation’ that brushes aside the conclusions of the Department of Justice after a two-year-long effort in favor of political theater pre-ordained to reach a preconceived and false result,” the letter sent from White House counsel Pat Cipollone reads
While the White House is not asserting executive privilege over any of the documents the committee chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., requested, they do argue that because the request is so broad it violates all prongs of executive privilege.
“If the committee intends to continue its inquiry,” Cipollone wrote, “it would greatly advance that process if the committee were to narrow the scope of the requests.”
In early March, Nadler sent document requests to eighty-one individuals and entities requesting documents and records as part of his investigation “into the alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration.” The individuals contacted included members of the Trump family, key figures in the president’s campaign, as well as past and present White House aides.
Cipollone wrote that Nadler’s investigation is “duplicative” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into now-debunked collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and requested that the committee seek a more “narrow” scope.
“Congressional investigations are intended to obtain information to aid in evaluating potential legislation, not to harass political opponents or to pursue an unauthorized “do-over” of exhaustive law enforcement investigations conducted by the Department of Justice,” argued the White House general counsel.
