House Launches New Investigation Into Trump, Russia

Feds demand Trump inauguration committee documents report

"No other politician has to go through that...it's called presidential harassment and it's unfortunate and it really does hurt our country".

Schiff has indicated that he will re-open parts of the committee probe, which Republicans closed last March, concluding there was no evidence of conspiracy or collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump had asked where Schiff got the authority to investigate him and accused the congressman of just trying to raise his political profile.

"The special counsel's office, the Justice Department and its elements will now have access to those transcripts for any goal which will facilitate justice", Schiff told reporters after the committee's vote, adding that the transcripts will be sent to Mueller's investigators immediately. But Schiff said Wednesday morning that the interview had been postponed to February 28 "in the interests of the investigation".

Asked Wednesday about the progressing Russian Federation investigation and Schiff's promise of a deep investigation that could include Trump's personal financial dealings, the president was dismissive.

Schiff has said Mueller should consider whether additional perjury charges are warranted.

Clark County Measles Outbreak Increases To 43 Confirmed Cases
There hasn't been a case of measles in North Dakota since 2011, according to the Department of Health. Farias says, "Washington now has a sufficient supply of MMR vaccine for children and adults".

The panel has previously released select transcripts to the Special Counsel, including that of Trump's longtime friend Roger Stone and Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen.

He was sentenced to three years in federal prison in December and is scheduled to report on March 6.

"The Committee must fulfill its responsibility to provide the American people with a comprehensive accounting of what happened, and what the United States must do to protect itself from future interference and malign influence operations", Schiff said.

This is the second time Cohen's planned testimony has been either delayed or cancelled.

Schiff also told reporters Wednesday that the House Intelligence Committee will not be "intimidated or threatened" by Trump's comments. Cohen is still expected to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee for a closed-door interview next Wednesday.

Republicans Wednesday made motions to publish unclassified transcripts of interviews with the committee, but Democrats blocked them, saying there actually was some classified material in those transcripts, CNN reported. But that vote took place in September, and the interview transcripts still have not been cleared in the declassification review - a delay Republicans called "unacceptable" in a statement. "They need it for evidentiary reasons in a courtroom". The minority also requested to subpoena "numerous witnesses", including, according to Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, former FBI Director James Comey and a number of Russian nationals. Schiff has released a statement containing the parameters for the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Russian Federation election interference. They did not specify which witnesses, however. Republicans said they were witnesses who Democrats had previously wanted to come before the panel.
