U.S. President Donald Trump assailed Democratic lawmakers Tuesday for opening a wide-ranging investigation of him and his administration, calling it "a big, fat, fishing expedition in search of a crime."

He contended that Democrats in the House of Representatives, who on Monday demanded documents from 81 people and entities linked to his 2016 campaign, his businesses and his two-year tenure as president, "have gone stone cold CRAZY." He said letters looking for information were sent to "innocent people to harass them."

On Twitter, he called the House Judiciary Committee investigation "the greatest overreach in the history of our Country. The Dems are obstructing justice and will not get anything done."

"PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!" he declared in a final, all-caps broadside.

Later, Trump told reporters, "It's a disgrace to our country," saying Democrats have still not gotten over him winning the 2016 election. "They want to focus on nonsense."

The House panel said it is investigating whether Trump has obstructed justice to thwart probes of him, as well as possible public corruption and abuses of power during his two-year presidency.

In announcing the investigation, Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler said, "Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical and constitutional rules and norms. Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress."
眾議院司法委員會主席納德勒(Jerrold Nadler)在宣布調查時說:“過去幾年來,特朗普總統幾乎每天都對我們的基本法律、操守和憲法規章與準則進行攻擊,而且逃避了問責。對這些法治面臨的威脅進行調查是國會的義務。”

Trump has long denied wrongdoing involving his campaign's links to Russia and during his presidency. Asked about the Nadler investigation on Monday, Trump replied, "I cooperate all the time with everybody.... You know the beautiful thing? No collusion. It’s all a hoax."

In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Democrats launched the investigation "because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of 'Russia collusion' is crumbling. Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful. 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."

She said White House lawyers and "relevant White House officials" would review the Judiciary Committee's demand for documents and "respond at the appropriate time."

Aside from the White House, the panel sent its requests for documents to the Justice Department; senior campaign officials; the Trump Organization, the president's global business empire; and his two oldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.

Nadler said Sunday he believes the president has obstructed justice. He said that Trump's former long-time personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in his lengthy public testimony to Congress last week, "directly implicated the president in various crimes, both while seeking the office of president and while in the White House."
納德勒星期天表示,他認為總統妨礙了司法。他說,特朗普的前任長期私人律師科恩(Michael Cohen)上星期在國會的長篇公開證詞“顯示總統在競選期間和就職后涉及了各種罪行”。
