JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not mince her words in reaction to House Democrats onslaught of new probes into 81 different Trump associates, institutions and companies on Monday evening.

Claiming Democrats are trying to “distract” from their “radical agenda,” which apparently includes turning America into “a socialist country” and “killing babies after they’re born,” she called the new document requests an “abuse of American citizens.”

“The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President,” she said.

Read the full statement below:

“Today, Chairman Nadler opened up a disgraceful and abusive investigation into tired, false allegations already investigated by the Special Counsel and committees in both Chambers of Congress. Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling. Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful. Democrats are harassing the President to distract from their radical agenda of making America a socialist country, killing babies after they’re born, and pushing a ‘green new deal’ that would destroy jobs and bankrupt America. The American people deserve a Congress that works with the President to address serious issues like immigration, healthcare, and infrastructure. The Democrats are more interested in pathetic political games and catering to a radical, leftist base than on producing results for our citizens. The Democrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.”
