Where the investigations related to President Trump stand

Trump's campaign is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for alleged collusion with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election, and for possible obstruction of that probe.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler told ABC News that on Monday his panel would be issuing requests for documents to 60 people, "to begin the investigations to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power".

United States lawmakers will demand documents from Donald Trump's eldest son and a lifelong business associate as part of a wide-ranging investigation into claims of obstruction of justice and other abuses by the president, a leading Democrat said Sunday.

Michael Cohen, the former fixer and personal attorney for President Donald Trump, offered explosive testimony last Wednesday during a hearing before a congressional committee. "We don't have the facts yet. But we're going to initiate proper investigations ... there can be crimes that are impeachable offenses and impeachable offenses that are not crimes".

The precipitation tapers off by around daybreak Monday, but any wet, heavy snow on the ground could impact the morning commute. A winter storm warning goes into effect for Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs starting at 3 p.m. this afternoon.

And he repeated his familiar complaint that he does not get the credit he deserves despite his claim that "no administration has accomplished probably you could say this with absolute certainty in the first two years anywhere near what we've accomplished".

Trump clearly delighted in the passion of the conservative audience, pointing to onlookers and applauding as Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." blared on the speakers. Now, Cohen says Trump's Russian business involvement extended for months after that.

Senator Mark Warner is contradicting his fellow members of the Senate Intelligence Committee by claiming there is direct evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Their defense of Trump was to deny that anything was wrong, even though there was plenty of evidence to the contrary.

"The witch hunt continues", President Trump says when asked about the investigation into Jared Kushner's security clearance. Nadler has helped lead the charge to pressure the Justice Department to release the full report to the public.

He briefly explained his intimate understanding of Kingsbury's Air Raid offense and said uniting with Kingsbury would be "nice". I just show up and do what I'm supposed to do. "Obviously generous words from him". "But that's the relationship".

"I think Congressman Nadler chose to impeach the president the day the president won the election", McCarthy said.

Nadler said his committee requested the documents, which were already shared with Mueller's team, "in order to begin building the public record" amid concerns that Justice Department officials "may hide the work of the special counsel's investigation". Cohen pleaded guilty previous year to violating campaign finance laws when he paid off adult film star Stormy Daniels to stay quiet before the 2016 election about an affair Cohen said she had with Trump.Cohen said Trump ordered the hush payment. "That's our core function".

Trump was fresh off a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam, where he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for their second summit. "Robert Mueller never received a vote and neither did the person who appointed him", Trump continued, as he attempted to portray Mueller's team as a group of the "angriest Democrats".
