Jerry Nadler said (about Donald Trump): “Until recently, no President had ever stated that his plan, across the board, would be to fight any and all oversight from Congress.

Pat Cipollone said: "Based on the sheer number and scope of the Committee's requests, it is clear that the Committee is trying to unduly burden the Office of the President so as to impair the President's ability to carry out his constitutional duties.

Pat Cipollone wrote: “The only purpose for this duplication seems to be harassing and seeking to embarrass political opponents after an exhaustive two-year investigation by the Department of Justice did not reach the conclusion that some members of the committee apparently would have preferred,” External link

Pat Cipollone said: "As presently framed, the Committee's inquiries transparently amount to little more than an attempt to duplicate -- and supplant -- law enforcement inquiries," "As you know, the Committee is not a law enforcement agency" External link
