Trump says House intel probe has no basis

Trump calls for an end to investigations of his administration

The House Intelligence Committee's new Democratic leadership will scrutinise "credible reports of money laundering and financial compromise" involving the businesses of US President Donald Trump and those closest to him, the panel's chairman said.

"SEALED DOCUMENT placed in vault".

It's not clear what the sealed document might be, but it was part of the Mueller docket, and not the Southern District of NY, where Cohen also has a cooperation agreement.

Republicans ended the committee's investigation in April 2018, announcing there was no evidence that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian government operatives to influence the election. Democrats strongly objected at the time, saying the Republicans prematurely closed the investigation. But Schiff said Wednesday morning that the interview had been postponed to February 28 "in the interests of the investigation".

The Committee also voted to release all investigative transcripts to the public in order to provide us "with greater transparency and insight into Russia's operations and the USA government's response".

Representative Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, speaks to members of the media outside the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on January 17.

The panel has previously released select transcripts to the Special Counsel, including that of Trump's longtime friend Roger Stone and Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen.

Stone pleaded not guilty to charges last month that he lied to the House panel about his discussions during the 2016 election about WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy group that released thousands of emails stolen from Democrats. Stone is also charged with obstructing the House probe by encouraging one of his associates, NY radio host Randy Credico, to refuse to testify before the House panel in an effort to hide Stone's false statements. Mueller "will now have access to those transcripts for any goal that will facilitate justice", Schiff said.

It is unclear if the special counsel has explicitly requested access to any additional transcripts.

Schiff also said the committee plans to release all transcripts of testimony given to the committee. The witnesses include the president's son Donald Trump Jr., as well as his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. There are dozens of other transcripts of interviews with former Obama administration officials and Trump associates.

The committee will also investigate whether any of the president's policy decisions were the result of foreign exploitation and whether any foreign actors are attempting to impede congressional or other investigations into those topics.

A Republican aide said that witness list included FBI and Justice Department officials involved in the Russian Federation investigation and others who could shed more light on research by former British spy Christopher Steele.

Steele's research was funded by Democrats and later compiled into an anti-Trump dossier that became public.
