he White Houses top lawyer told the House Judiciary Committee chairman Wednesday that Congress has no right to a do-over of the special counsels investigation of President Trump and refused a broad demand for records and testimony from dozens of current and former White House staff.
White House Counsel Pat Cipollones letter to committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) constitutes a sweeping rejection not just of Nadlers request for White House records, but of Congresss standing to investigate Trump for possible obstruction of justice.

Thanks Innovative. And if the law isn't good enough for the Demagogic Party, they'll find out that it's not good enough for the rest of the country, either.
You’ve had your two+ years of “fun” at the expense of the nation. Now get on with something that benefits the whole of the country instead of your own political agenda.
Someone get “No Nads Nadler” a couple of cheeseburger, fries, malt and big bag of suckers.
Take that, fat bastard.
Hahahahaha....and don’t forget the crying towel.
Better late than never.
The Dems are told, "No" - and they don't know what to do...
“GWB would have said yes, Congressman Nadler, may I have another witch hunt”?
Bush is such a phony wimp who kissed their ass every time they kicked his ass.
Thank God for our President Trump.
And for the new-to-me name of Pat Cipollone.!!
I don't think they have a prayer.
