Committee Democrats have also been accused of being behind a leak of inaccurate details of an email sent to Trump Jr. during the presidential campaign.
The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says he wants to interview the President's daughter as part of the panel's Russian Federation investigation, along with other witnesses who Republicans aren't inviting.
"The only people that we've seen trying to influence the investigation are former Director Comey and Democrats in Congress - and that would include Senator Feinstein, Representative Schiff - who have both selectively leaked to the media witness interviews", said Sanders. The two Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, during the 2016 campaign, referred to Trump as an "idiot" and "d*uche" during the 2016 election and said that his victory was "terrifying", according to documents reviewed by CNN. Among the witnesses he wants to interview: Ivanka Trump, plus he says the panel should consider issuing a subpoena to Trump Jr. for information he withheld during his classified hearing past year.
Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California caused an uproar earlier this week by releasing the transcript of private conversations between congressional investigators and a political researcher who, on behalf of Democrats, hired a former British spy in 2016 to document any ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
Kentucky becomes the first state allowed to impose Medicaid work requirement
The work requirements will likely be challenged in court. "They're going to try to force a square peg into a round hole", he said. Steve Beshear, Kentucky embraced Medicaid expansion and was viewed as a national model for its implementation of the ACA.
After Trump's tweets, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said he would not be having a discussion with the president about taking control of the investigation. And he says the GOP has not supported efforts to get information from the White House about the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, saying the White House has ignored bipartisan requests while the GOP has done little to pursue it.
"This investigation has gone about 1/4 of the time of the Benghazi investigations", Schiff said, referring to the GOP-led inquiries after the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. "There are witnesses who have knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting and what it was about who have not been brought to our committee - and need to". And it's been revealed in the press that Donald Trump Jr. eagerly accepted a meeting in June 2016 on the premise that he would be offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton from a "Russian government attorney".
Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, has not been specifically identified as a leaker of information about the committee's Russian Federation investigation.
"What we saw with Watergate was the model of a committee where the ranking Republican set the tone by saying the key here is what did the president know and when did he know it? - and followed through with an investigation with integrity", he said.
"I think it would be valuable for her to testify and come before the committee", Schiff said.
