(CNN)Republicans on Capitol Hill are raising alarms at the White House's resistance to congressional demands, fearing President Donald Trump is bolstering the power of his office at the expense of Congress.

The White House has stonewalled House Democrats on nearly all aspects of their sprawling investigations into the President, refusing to provide documents as requested by committee chairmen, preventing former White House officials from complying with Democratic demands and fighting subpoenas pertaining to the US Census and the administration's handling of the security clearance process.

All this comes ahead of an already roiling conflict over the release of and redactions in special counsel Robert Mueller's report, which Attorney General William Barr said during a recent, high profile hearing in Congress would be released in the coming days.

Trump has also come into conflict with Republican lawmakers over personnel and legislative strategy. In the past few months, Trump pushed for them to return to the politically risky fight to replace the Affordable Care Act. He considered nominees key Republican senators don't want for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. And he pulled another — Ron Vitiello to lead US Immigration and Customs Enforcement — that Republicans actually liked.

More at link like quotes from Republicans Sen. John Cornyn, Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Mitt Romney, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Sen. Cory Gardner, Sen. Mike Rounds,  Sen. John Kennedy, and Sen. Rick Scott.
This is what the LORD Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.  Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other."

Got no problems with that.

I'd snub many of the Congressional Republicans as well.
Particularly the senators.
Spineless a@@holes!

Coming from the fake news network CNN this is high praise indeed!

My question to these propagandists for the socialists is why should President Trump help those who seek to destroy him?
