President Donald Trump is not happy with the actions of Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., the House Judiciary Committee chairman who launched a sprawling probe Monday of the president’s family, administration and campaign.
And Nadler was not the only Democrat to fire a salvo at Trump, as Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, began an investigation of the president’s private conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, asking the White House and the State Department for information.
Which makes at least three Democrat-led House committees targeting Trump as it becomes clear that this is all leading to impeachment.
Taking to Twitter, Trump said the Democrats are “stone cold CRAZY.”
“Now that they realize the only Collusion with Russia was done by Crooked Hillary Clinton & the Democrats, Nadler, Schiff and the Dem heads of the Committees have gone stone cold CRAZY. 81 letter sent to innocent people to harass them. They won’t get ANYTHING done for our Country!” he tweeted.
Nadler served document requests to 81 agencies, entities and individuals, as part of a new probe into “alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump.”
The president’s sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, are among the individuals targeted, as was son-in-law Jared Kushner.
The president continues to call it presidential harassment, the “greatest overreach in the history of our country,” as seen in two other tweets posted Tuesday.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders ripped Nadler in a statement, saying he opened the “disgraceful and abusive investigation” because the fear Special Counsel Robert Mueller failed to prove collusion with Russia.
“Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling,” Sanders said in the release. “Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful.”

The party that made weaponizing the apparatus of the U.S. government a political tactic under President Obama has grown impatient waiting on Mueller to wrap up his probe and is now in a frenzy, hellbent on impeaching Trump.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee — believe it or not — took to Twitter Monday night to rally the troops to the cause.
“For the faint of heart, who’ve been waiting for every ‘t’ to be crossed and every ‘i’ to be dotted, now is the time to demonstrate your patriotism. Support impeachment!” she tweeted.
For the faint of heart, who've been waiting for every "t" to be crossed and every "i" to be dotted, now is the time to demonstrate your patriotism. Support impeachment!

The Democrat Party is intent on shaking the bushes until something damning falls out. In the meantime, they’ll have the White House mired in so many investigations that the Trump administration will no longer be able to effectively govern.
Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs characterized this campaign as a “coup” against Trump, calling it an “abuse of power.”
#DrainTheSwamp – @SidneyPowell1: GOP needs to quash the subpoenas and fight them in any way they can. @TomFitton: Targets should just say no. This is an abuse of power. The coup against @POTUS is being continued through this abuse of congressional power. #MAGA #TrumpTrain #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/IVOtte9juh
