Donald Trump used the SOTU to warn Democrats not to investigate him. That seems to have backfired.

Remember this from last night?

Just about everybody recognized that as a threat from Trump that investigations against him would have political consequences. 

However, that did not seem to impress the Democrats very much.

Courtesy of WaPo:

For weeks, President Trump has been warning Democrats not to investigate him and his administration too aggressively. He repeated that message at Tuesday’s State of Union: “An economic miracle is taking place in the United States, and the only thing that can stop it are foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations.”

House Democrats are clearly not cowed. In fact, quite the opposite.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) laid out an extensive — and expansive — outline for how his committee will resume its probing of Russia. Schiff laid out five areas of inquiry. They include the ones you’d expect and are familiar with because of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation: Russian interference, potential collusion and potential obstruction of justice.

But then there are Nos. 3 and 4:

“(3) Whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates.”

“(4) Whether President Trump, his family, or his associates are or were at any time at heightened risk of, or vulnerable to, foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure, or coercion, or have sought to influence U.S. government policy in service of foreign interests.”

This is something Democrats including Schiff have been previewing for a while, but now it’s officially a major part of the committee’s purview. And the broad berth he’s given himself suggests that he’s ready to go after any number of things: Trump Tower Moscow, the claims in the Steele dossier about Russian kompromat on Trump, Trump’s highly secretive talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump’s business and its foreign entanglements, the Trump Organization and even Trump’s family, which Schiff mentions specifically.

Here was Trump’s reaction to hearing that Adam Schiff was coming for him.

Presidential harassment my ass. Try whining about that to Barack Obama.

According to the LA Times that is not all the Democrats have in store for Trump:

A day after the State of the Union address, House Democrats responded Wednesday by launching a counter-agenda, including a series of investigations into the Trump administration and legislation they hope will send a compelling message to voters ahead of the 2020 election.

Democrats this week will hold nearly half a dozen investigative hearings into Trump administration officials and programs, and convene even more panels to discuss policy issues such as climate change, universal background checks for gun purchases and campaign finance reform — all partisan initiatives.

The rollout of the House Democrats’ agenda was delayed by the 35-day partial government shutdown over President Trump’s demand for money to build a wall along the southern border. That threat hasn’t completely subsided. Lawmakers are trying to craft a deal to avert another shutdown by Feb. 15.

But newly empowered Democrats, particularly members of the energetic freshman class, are ready to get moving.

“He’s not ready for it at all,” fifth-term Rep. Karen Bass (D-Los Angeles) said of Trump, who spent the first two years of his presidency dealing with a Congress controlled by Republicans. “He calls it presidential harassment. He doesn’t get the basic process [of congressional oversight]. So that’s the part that’s scary.”

In other words, Trump poked the bear, and the bear is going to rip him a new asshole. 

I swear this guy is so incredibly stupid sometimes it almost defies description.

    Trump reminded me of a long winded drunk uncle. All the relatives held their breaths to see what kind of drama uncle so and so would produce. Sometimes he tried to be nice but the mean always won out. And if someone called out you lie like the republicans did to obama they would have had to call out for every fat lie trump put forth. Also, notice trump looked pissed when he was talking about more women in the work force and the women applauded and stole the thunder. Of coarse we know he didnt mean those women. He was using a blanket statement of women he had no connection to whatsoever. Trumps speech was slow, long, and only pronouncecthat putin has long sowed the seed of discord as he groomed his mouthy puppet. If that werent a dangerous thing i would yawn.

      MOH needs to get a job. A real job. With a weekly or bi-weekly or monthly paycheck. He needs to grow up.

    I laughed out loud when I read that Don the Con said he never heard of Adam Schiff and then immediately called him a “political hack” as soon as Schiff announced that the Intelligence Committee was going to investigate Don the Con’s money laundering. Methinks that Schiff struck a particular chord with the White House occupier-in-chief – namely, money.

      tinydjt tweet>So funny to see little Adam SchiTT (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly CONflicted) was not approved by the Senate!

    “The time has come to bring that investigation and the other investigations of this matter to an end,” Nixon said on Jan. 30, 1974.

    “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation,” Trump said. “It just doesn’t work that way.”

    Who’s the crook?

    Hannity and Trump chat like “old girlfriends” most nights before bedtime>“What Hannity said” Goes.

    “So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life,
    both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

    No, that was nunes sh*t for brains! What a douche.

    No-nes is someone who I personally think may have even committed a few crimes in the process of his obstructionist “investigation.”

    SOOOOO many people I want to see in leg irons. Can you imagine precious daughter, precious son, and precious SIL in a perpwalk? I can.

    “in a brief visit to Caracas this week, we found broad consensus on one point: It all depends on Donald Trump.”
