McConnell Warns Democrats Of 'Presidential Harassment,' Doesn't Mention Trump's Threat

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell is taking a play out of First Lady Melania Trump's anti-bullying campaign: is now going on the offensive against Democrats who have taken over the House of Representatives, and with it, subpoena power.

McConnell calls any investigations into Trump "presidential harassment."

He conveniently sidestepped a question about Trump threatening to investigate House Democrats if they "wasted taxpayer money" by going after him.

McConnell tried to make a historical case against going after Trump by bringing up former President Bill Clinton. He said investigating Trump "might not be a smart strategy."

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway was asked about the prospect of the White House being under investigation and also tried to make it seem like it would backfire with voters.

Right now, it's unclear what Democrats will do with their new powers, but it's said that they're already in the process of seeking to request Trump's tax returns, which he has still yet to make available. Request is a kind word. The reality is, the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has the power to get anyone's tax returns, including the presidents.
