House Panel Announces Emergency Declaration Probe In Letter to Trump

According to Reuters, a key committee in the U.S. House of Representatives announced on Friday it was launching an immediate investigation into President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration.

The committee said that the president's move to fund his promised wall at the U.S.-Mexico border raised constitutional and statutory issues.

In a letter to Trump, Democrats who control the House Judiciary Committee requested legal documents on the decision that led to the declaration.
