For the President to go around Congress and say 'you don't agree there's an emergency, I think there's an emergency, we're going to spend the money that you said no you won't spend' is upending democratic government, is making the President a dictator, and that's a far greater risk to our government and to our freedom than almost anything else that's going on.
The Department's decision reflects President Trump's blanket defiance of Congress's constitutionally mandated duties, in the coming days, I expect that Congress will have no choice but to confront the behavior of this lawless Administration. The Committee will also take a hard look at the officials who are enabling this cover up.
I am very concerned that it is apparent that the Department (of Justice) will not meet the April 2 deadline that we set. And I'm very disturbed by that, i asked whether he could commit that the full report, an unredacted full report with the underlying documents evidence would be provided to Congress and to the American people. And he wouldn't make a commitment to that. I am very concerned about that.
