Another Horrible Week Ahead for the Trump Administration
Next week is shaping up to be another bad week for the Trump administration. This, coming on the heels of two really horrible weeks the administration just endured.
The top Democrat in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has called for an investigation of “all matters related to obstruction of justice,”
Since Donald Trump became the President of the United States, he has faced increasing questions about his character and integrity.
This week, former FBI director James Comey flat-out called the president a liar during his testimony before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.
Late Friday, Sen, Feinstein called on the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley to fully investigate all events leading up to the firing of Comey and Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections.
“It is my strong recommendation that the Judiciary Committee investigate all issues that raise a question of obstruction of justice,” the California Democrat wrote in a letter to Chairman Grassley.
“These issues should be developed by our legal staff, presented to us, and be subject to full committee hearings,” she said.

Senator Feinstein said she is particularly concerned about the unwillingness of the intelligence leaders to answer simple questions when they appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, a former U.S. Senator and Admiral Rogers, the Director of National Security Agency declined to answer questions relating to any conversations they had with President Donald Trump when they appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“As I have mentioned to you directly, I am supportive of issuing subpoenas in those cases where we do not receive cooperation,” she wrote.
Meanwhile Attorney General Jeff sessions earlier today confirmed he intends to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee early next week.
Nobody expects the same fireworks we witnessed when James Comey testified before the same Committee but experts believe this will give the Senators an opportunity to have Sessions answer questions about his role in the Russian investigations and the firing of the former FBI director.
