- White House counsel Pat Cipollone rebuffs document requests
- Letter to Jerry Nadler promises to ‘resist overbroad demands’
Congress has no right to conduct a “do-over” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 US election, the White House has said, in a letter blasting House Democrats’ “sweeping” requests for documents as an effort to harass political opponents.
The letter dated 15 May from the White House counsel Pat Cipollone to the House judiciary committee chair, Jerry Nadler, takes the view that the committee’s investigation serves no legitimate legislative purpose.
