US Government Committee To Investigate Visit Of Mike Pence To Doonbeg

However, Pelosi's opposition to impeachment has not stopped plans by the House Judiciary Committee to formally vote to define the panel's so-called "impeachment investigation". The text of the changes will be made public Monday for a likely vote next week.

Since the policy of the US Ministry of Justice does not allow prosecuting the incumbent president, the House of Representatives is the only institution that can now hold President Trump accountable for obstructing the investigation of former special prosecutor Robert Muller on Russia's "interference" in the 2016 elections.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) wrote a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and Secret Service Director James Murray Thursday requesting more information about the president's "apparent promotion and solicitation of foreign and US government business at Trump Organization or affiliated properties".

Democrats are requesting documents from the White House, Pence's office, the U.S. Secret Service and the Trump Organization questioning the use of taxpayer dollars and what they contend are potential violations of the Constitution's Emoluments Clause.

Other committees are investigating Trump's financial entanglements as well.

"People are exhausted by the chaos", Cicilline said, speaking of the Trump presidency more broadly. Democrats say it could violate the Constitution if Trump profits from an official meeting of foreign heads of state at one of his resorts while he is president.

However, the Senate consisting mostly of the Republicans will hardly approve the idea about Trump's impeachment.

"Though the language of the resolution is still in flux, some sources said it could incorporate elements of traditional impeachment probes, such as offering access to the president's attorneys or providing for more time to question witnesses", Politico reported.

The Committee on oversight and reform will examine the decision to stay at Trump International Hotel, 180 miles away from the Vice President's official business in Dublin.

"We have been focused on the Mueller report, and that is a very small part of the overall picture", said Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, a member of the Judiciary panel. "We must get America focused on the ongoing violations against basic constitutional principles".

Plus, some Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are urging the panel not to focus heavily on the hush money, anxious a skeptical public would compare that to the GOP push to tarnish President Bill Clinton's reputation amid his affair with a White House intern. In an interview on Friday, Schiff said his panel will continue on that track this fall, including Trump's business links to the Gulf region and his efforts before the 2016 election toward building a tower in Moscow.

Several other 2020 hopefuls, including Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Bernie Sanders, have said they support impeachment.
