If we’ve learned anything from being subjected to Trump’s kids, it’s that the criminal apple doesn’t fall far from the criminal tree. Both Eric and Donald Trump Jr., apparently in a contest over who’s the biggest Fredo, have repeatedly implicated themselves in the collusion with Russia. And while Ivanka has always been the golden child and only redeemable Trump, it seems that she may also be a shady criminal.
Ivanka just got a major shot of reality after the top-ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee let it be known that he wants “dozens” more witnesses to testify in front of the panel in the Russia probe, including daughter Ivanka.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told Reuters that he would like committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) to call Trump and former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon as a witness. He also wants Trump’s husband, Jared Kushner, to testify again. Former White House Council Steve Bannon has lawyered up, according to the Daily Beast.
Democrats have been very frustrated by Republicans lack of interest in calling forward more witnesses to testify in the biggest scandal of our country’s history. In fact, the Hill reports one Democrat on the committee said earlier this month that the panel is strongly considering publishing a report detailing how GOP members tried to hinder the investigation, including by refusing to call witnesses.
Schiff’s actions are sure to infuriate Donald Trump who has repeatedly called the investigation a “witch hunt,” And that his favorite daughter is now being questioned for her potential role in the Russian probe will surely set him off, making him more, um, unstable. The fact remains that the White House doesn’t have a leg to stand on, and if Trump were to suddenly fire Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, it might bring about the collapse of the Republic itself.
