A newly-empowered House Democratic committee chairman vowed on Wednesday to probe efforts by President Donald Trump for using his post to pursue what he called his own 'financial self-interest.'
But the president immediately signaled his own determination to resist a coming wave of investigations – and tried to intimidate the new opposition by brandishing his own threat of probes.
'If the Democrats think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level,' The president wrote Wednesday morning.
'Two can play that game!' he added.
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland issued the warning shot at Trump and his administration Wednesday hours after Democrats sealed their takeover.
