Dems have found another lame excuse to investigate President Trump.
California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said Tuesday Congress is investigating President Donald Trump over allegations that he “dangled pardons” in front of his former advisers involved in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The frequent Trump critic tweeted his comments in response to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders saying Trump has not made up his mind on a possible pardon for former campaign chair Paul Manafort, who was recently sentenced to 47 months in jail over tax and bank fraud charges.
“Congress is investigating reports that Trump and his legal team privately dangled pardons to obstruct investigations, including ours. Yesterday, the White House refused to rule out a pardon for Paul Manafort,” Schiff said. “That Trump does so in the open is no less corrupt.”
