The Democrats do not appear to be intimidated by Trump's threats that he would declassify documents and expose them.

Trump told The Post earlier this week:

"If they go down the presidential harassment track, if they want go and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me,” Trump said. “I’m a counter-puncher and I will hit them so hard, they’d never been hit like that.”

Democrats starting in 2019, the Dems, who have taken over the House of Representatives, will be chairing top congressional committees next year and have stated that they have no intention to back away from launching any investigations into Trump or his administration.

“The President has to learn that he is not above the law and his threats will not intimidate us from doing the work that Congress needs to do,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the presumed next leader of the House Judiciary Committee.

Nadler also touched on the latest Cohen revelations:

Lying to Congress is a serious crime with serious consequences,” Nadler, said in a statement. “Mr. Cohen has now admitted to lying about his contacts with Russian officials on behalf of President Trump. His guilty plea contemplates Mr. Cohen’s further cooperation with investigators. Anyone who still believes that this is a 'witch hunt' must now face the reality that the investigation appears to be closing in on the President.”

But the Dems will not be moved.

“What he means: If Democrats do legitimate oversight I will burn sources and allies by selectively declassifying info so my legal team can misrepresent it to the public,” Rep. Adam Schiff tweeted.

We do think Trump will declassify the documents if he feels threatened. But, will he burn the entire house down in the process.
