It Begins

 

The House Judiciary Committee announced that it will investigate President Trump’s national emergency declaration after Trump admitted during a Friday press conference that he “didn’t need to do this.” 

In a six-page letter signed by Democrats who control the committee, the Judiciary Committee seeks several documents from the White House, including any opinions solicited from the Office of Legal Counsel and Department of Defense. The letter also asks the White House to justify its legal basis for the determination that “there is an “emergency” at the southern border,” and why a border wall is “necessary to support” a “use of the armed forces” at the border.
