Trump White House orders federal agencies to blow off requests for info from all Democrats

“Politico reports that the Trump administration has ordered agencies to stop responding to oversight requests from Democrats, as administration officials “fear the information could be weaponized against President Donald Trump.”

One White House official told Politico that such restrictions were entirely justified because Republicans now control all three branches of government and thus don’t have to pay any attention to the minority party’s requests for information.

“You have Republicans leading the House, the Senate and the White House,” the official explained. “I don’t think you’d have the Democrats responding to every minority member request if they were in the same position.” ”
