White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fired off a scathing statement Monday condemning Democrats over their latest advances into investigations of President Donald Trump.
"Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of Congress," Sanders said in the statement.
"Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of 'Russia collusion' is crumbling," she continued. "Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful."
On Monday, House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) sent letters to 81 persons and organizations for the sake of the committee's investigation into various controversies of the Trump administration.
"Democrats are harassing the President to distract from their radical agenda of making America a socialist country, killing babies after they're born, and pushing a 'green new deal' that would destroy jobs and bankrupt America," Sanders continued in the statement.
"The American people deserve a Congress that works with the President to address serious issues like immigration, healthcare, and infrastructure," she added. "The Democrats are more interested in pathetic political games and catering to a radical, leftist base than on producing results for our citizens."
Earlier on CNN, Nadler admitted to a stunned Erin Burnett that he didn't have conclusive evidence that Trump obstructed justice, but said that the investigation was intended to gather just such evidence.
"The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President," Sanders concluded.
