Isn’t this essentially obstruction of justice? Refusing House requests for information and testimony from White House staff?

White House Counsel Pat Cipollone’s letter to committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) constitutes a sweeping rejection — not just of Nadler’s request for White House records, but of Congress’s standing to investigate Trump for possible obstruction of justice. In his letter, Cipollone repeated a claim the White House and Trump’s business have begun making: that Congress is not a law enforcement body and does not have a legitimate purpose to investigate the questions it is pursuing.

Trump apparently answers to no one. Is this America?

Some poetic justice: Trump’s performance has hurt his brand so much one of his premier resorts is suffering.
