President Donald Trump vowed on Wednesday that the White House will be “fighting all the subpoenas” from House Democrats, saying “It’s enough.”
The president made the comments as Democrats continue to step up their inquiries in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, The Associated Press reported.
“We’re fighting all the subpoenas,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, en route to an event in Georgia on the opioid crisis.
The president said he “thought after two years we’d be finished with it.”
According to CNBC, House Democrats in recent months have issued dozens of requests for information or cooperation from President Trump, his administration, and his associates.
In some tweets on Wednesday, Trump said he had “allowed everyone to testify, including W.H. counsel,” though he “didn’t have to do” that. However, Democrats “only want to continue the Witch Hunt.”
A day earlier, Trump told The Washington Post that he did not see any reason to “go any further” in allowing his aides to testify before congressional committees, especially in Congress where it is very partisan.
