Congress has no right to 'do-over' of Russia probe: White House counselThe May 15 letter from White House counsel Pat Cipollone to House Judiciary Committee chair Jerrold Nadler says the committee’s probe serves no legitimate legislative purpose. The letter was drafted in response to Nadler’s March 4 request for documents from the White House for a congressional investigation of allegations of obstruction of justice, public corruption and other abuses of power. Cipollone asked the panel to narrow its “sweeping” request and provide a legislative purpose, and said many documents would be entitled to be withheld under executive privilege.
