Trump Threatens Reciprocal Leak Probe If Dems Launch More Witch-Hunts

ZeroHedge

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted a warning to Democrats who have threatened to investigate him upon reclaiming a majority in the House of Representatives:

“If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level,” Trump said, “then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level.”

Last December, President Trump’s son, Don Jr. called on the House intelligence Committee to investigate information that was leaked from his closed interview the week before.

“This committee should determine whether any member or staff member violated the rules by leaking information to the media concerning the interview or by purposely providing inaccurate information which led to significant misreporting,” said Trump Jr.’s attorney, Alan Futerfas.

  • In addition, his letter charges that members of the House committee “began disseminating wildly inaccurate information” to reporters that formed the basis of an erroneous CNN report on an email that Mr. Trump and other members of the Trump campaign received in September 2016.
