House Republicans Just Made Clear They Won't Fulfill Oversight of Trump

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

House Republicans on Tuesday shielded President Donald Trump from disclosure of his potential business conflicts, ethical violations, and ties to Russia by voting down Democratic N.Y. Rep. Jerry Nadler's resolution of inquiry that would have required the Department of Justice to release to Congress documents relating to those matters.

It was defeated 18-16 along party lines. With the committee marking it unfavorable, the resolution will not be taken up by the full chamber.

Since it seem pretty obvious Trump is trying to cover up his connections with Russia (won't release his tax returns, interference with FBI investigation) the Republicans seem to have decided to go along because the truth would probably be pretty disturbing if it ever came out.
