Since the election of President Donald Trump, Democrats like House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi have focused their efforts on opposing his policies while calling for his impeachment.
Now, with November Midterms just months away, a newly leaked document details Pelosi plans to continue obstructing the Trump administration, should the Democrats retake control of the House of Representatives.
The document, which has been circulating among House Republicans recently, details over 100 possible investigations that the Democrats plan to bring against President Trump and his administration.
Among the many things Democrats hope to investigate include allegations of Russian collusion, the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, and the Trump’s tax returns.
A spreadsheet reportedly circulating among House Republicans details over 100 potential investigations into President Donald Trump that Democrats will launch if they win the November elections. They intend to impeach him — or, at best, cripple his presidency.
The document, reported by Axios on Sunday and hinted at by HuffPost on Friday (which put the number at a mere 52 investigations), is said to have Republicans “getting ready for hell,” as Democrats will use oversight to create gridlock, or worse.
Axios reports that some of the investigations, based on requests for inquiries made by Democrats while in the minority, 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
HuffPost composed a similar list, based on subpoena requests by Democrats that Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives had ignored thus far. They cited a statement by Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee:
If Democrats win the majority in November, we would finally do what Republicans have refused to do, and that is conduct independent, fact-based, and credible investigations of the Trump Administration to address issues like the security clearance process, conflicts of interest, the numerous attempts by Republicans to strip away healthcare from millions of Americans, postal service reforms, prescription drug pricing, and voting rights.
