A constitutional crisis has been written.
I am not sure if this will be the case for much of the public.
By vowing not to cooperate with a number of Democratic house-seekers, President Trump It's a gamble that people are fed up with the entire investigative culture and it will not hurt him politically. And he also insists that he has survived the Mueller trial and can persuade Congress to speak in a petty and partisan manner of what he dismissed yesterday as "nonsense."

The fundamental problem with this approach is that Congress is an equal government branch. It does not matter what the investigation by Bob Müller has found, the legislature has the responsibility to oversee the executive, as do the Republicans during the Obama and Clinton administrations.
Nevertheless, Trump told the Washington Post that he sees no reason to follow the mount hill requests for certificates and documents. "There's no reason to go any further, especially in Congress, where it's very biased ̵
The President was equally hostile to reporters yesterday: "The subpoena is ridiculous … We've just gone through the Mueller Witch Hunt where you really had 18 angry Democrats who hated President Trump, they hate him passionately."  Topics: Trump is on the verge of encouraging an executive executive to prevent the former White House attorney Don McGahn from making a house summons.

The White House's former Personal Security Director, Carl Kline, was contemptuous because he did not testify about safety clearance. The Ministry of Finance also opposes a claim of the House for tax returns from Trump.
These struggles often last a long time and are often brought to justice. Richard Nixon used the privilege of the executive to protect the Watergate cover-up.

For Barack Obama it was Benghazi and Fast and Furious.
The Democrats are of course outraged by the Trumpian tactic, with Nancy Pelosi: "Now we see the government taking the facts into the hands of the Americans people."
The unusual thing about Trump's approach is that he does not fought only one or two requests for specific reasons, but made only a blanket statement about the non-cooperation with the post.
In fact, Axios cited a "source" He is familiar with the president's legal strategy, "in the words:" Trump can put off by a hard position from the clock.

After speaking on the subject, he asked a few questions about his government's aversion to Congress. We will publish these remarks tonight.
Yesterday Trump offered this Twitter taunt: "I did not call Bob Costa from the Washington Post. He called me (his call back)! Only more false news. "
Uh, isn" is that what Costa said … Maybe Trump just did not like the story.
