WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The incoming Democratic chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee intends to investigate President Donald Trumpís impact on the integrity of the Justice Department and the FBI, according to a letter sent to top federal law enforcement officials on Tuesday.

Representative Jerrold Nadler, now the panelís top Democrat, gave acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and FBI Director Christopher Wray until Dec. 31 to respond to more than 100 letters House Democrats have already sent concerning Trumpís behavior toward U.S. law enforcement, including verbal attacks on senior officials.

ďI write with growing concern over President Trumpís repeated attacks on the integrity of the Department of Justice and the FBI,Ē Nadler told Whitaker and Wray in the Nov. 13 letter that was made public.

ďThe presidentís behavior appears to be motivated by an urge to shield himself, his family, and his business interests from the ongoing work of the department and the bureau.Ē

1. I would really appreciate the Kavanaugh situation to come to light and be discussed.

 

At the least.
