House Intelligence to probe whether Trump family interfered in investigation
By Morgan Chalfant - 05/14/19 04:31 PM EDT

The House Intelligence Committee is investigating whether attorneys for President Trump and his family obstructed the panel’s investigation into Russian interference by shaping or editing false testimony.

Documents show that the panel, led by Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), sent requests for documents and testimony from the president’s personal attorney Jay Sekulow and three others earlier this year in connection with the investigation into whether they edited or shaped former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s 2017 false statements to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow proposal.

The committee is particularly interested in hearing from Sekulow; Alan Futerfas, Donald Trump Jr.'s attorney; Alan Garten, the Trump Organization's top lawyer; and Abbe Lowell, Ivanka Trump's attorney.

I'm glad the Mueller report finally settled all this.  Now Congress can get back to passing the kind of legislation I hate.
