This morning, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced that tomorrow he’s going after several people in Donald Trump’s life, including Donald Trump Jr. Suffice it to say that Donald Trump didn’t take the news particularly well. Then the news got worse for him – much worse.
Nadler said he was targeting sixty Trump-related people and entities, but only dropped the name of one of Donald Trump’s kids. This alone was enough to set Trump off, prompting him to post this weird and semi-literate meltdown on Twitter:
After more than two years of Presidential Harassment, the only things that have been proven is that Democrats and other broke the law. The hostile Cohen testimony, given by a liar to reduce his prison time, proved no Collusion! His just written book manuscript showed what he said was a total lie, but Fake Media won’t show it. I am an innocent man being persecuted by some very bad, conflicted & corrupt people in a Witch Hunt that is illegal & should never have been allowed to start – And only because I won the Election! Despite this, great success!”
Unfortunately for Donald Trump, this has quickly become a whole lot bigger than Michael Cohen. This afternoon we learned that among the people being targeted by the House Judiciary Committee are Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, and Jared Kushner. That’s right, the whole family is getting rung up. Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg is also on the list. He’s already provided limited evidence against Trump in exchange for limited immunity, so his continued cooperation seems likely.
