Trump asks if Nadler will look into Clinton’s ‘deleted and acid washed’ emails

President Trump on Friday questioned whether House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) would investigate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “acid washed” emails amid an expansive probe into the president himself

“Will Jerry Nadler ever look into the fact that Crooked Hillary deleted and acid washed 33,000 emails AFTER getting a most powerful demand notice for them from Congress?” he wrote. 

Trump and his supporters during the 2016 campaign frequently lamented Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State.

{mosads}Nadler’s Judiciary panel launched a wide-ranging probe into Trump’s family and administration in March. The inquiry will focus on possible obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuses of power. 

Nadler on Thursday also pushed back on White House demands that he terminate investigations into the administration related to the Mueller report. 

“As a threshold matter, your failure to comprehend the gravity of the Special Counsel’s findings is astounding and dangerous,” he wrote to White House counsel Pat Cipollone on Thursday. “The Mueller Report found that Russia interfered in our elections and outlined our nation’s acute vulnerability to another attack. The Special Counsel also found that the President engaged in multiple acts to exert undue influence over law enforcement investigations.”

A trio of GOP senators in April called for Attorney General William Barr to release information on the handling of the investigation into Clinton’s email use.
