The judiciary chairman said he would initiate investigations into Trump for abuse of power, corruption, and obstruction of justice. The ranges of the Russia-contacts in the election campaign of 2016, on suspicion of obstruction of Justice, up to the possible abuse of the President for private business interests, as the Democrats controlled the judiciary Committee of the house of representatives on Monday (local time) announced.
With special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation seemingly approaching its end, Trump spoke of the "collusion delusion" and lashed out at newly empowered House Democrats who are opening new inquires involving him.
In a speech that lasted more than two hours - his longest since taking office two years ago - Trump also vented about Democrats, a proposed "green new deal", illegal immigrants and criticism of his summit with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), while voicing optimism about his own re-election prospects in 2020.
Republicans hoped Trump's address would serve as a diversion to the Mueller investigation and to the testimony this week on Capitol Hill by the president's former personal attorney Michael Cohen implicating him in crimes.
The President also used his speech at CPAC to knock back accusations that his firing of Comey was an attempt to shut down the Russian Federation investigation and therefore fits the definition of obstruction of justice.

Fox personalities are now responding to the new Democratic investigative push, and the true dimensions of their efforts are coming into clearer focus: Precisely because Trump has committed extremely serious misconduct and wrongdoing on so many fronts, some of Fox's leading voices are resorting to portraying any and all oversight directed at the president as fundamentally illegitimate.
The committee is looking for any indication that those around Trump may have offered to provide Russian Federation with relief from crippling economic sanctions, theorizing that such an offer may have been made as a repayment for the country's campaign support.
In dramatic congressional testimony Wednesday broadcast across the world on cable and US network channels, Cohen turned on his former boss, using the big stage to describe Trump as a "mobster", "con man", "cheat" and a "racist". While many liberal members of the Democratic caucus think impeachment is warranted, Democratic leaders have been cautious, saying they first want to investigate.
On the foreign front, Trump repeated his claim that the last Islamic State fighters in Syria would be captured or killed imminently - "as of tomorrow", he said - and railed against Chinese tariffs on American goods. And you know the handsome thing: no collusion. William Barr has since been confirmed as attorney general.
