CNN's Tapper slaps down Trump's 'Presidential harassment' whine:  Democrats are just doing their jobs
President Donald Trump responds to a question about Jussie Smollett (Screen cap).

After Democrats took control of Congress, they wasted no time doing as promised: looking into potential misconduct and conflicts of interest in the Trump campaign and Trump White House.


The president is not happy with the added scrutiny, tweeting, "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT! It should never be allowed to happen again!" Thursday.

On CNN's The Lead, host Jake Tapper observed the irony of Trump's new stance on harassment.

"The president, who's long been accused of harassing people on Twitter, is today objecting to what he calls Presidential harassment," Tapper noted.

"President trump is calling it presidential harassment. Democrats are calling it their constitutional duty, telling the president this is his new reality," Tapper observed. "House Democrats now armed with subpoena power, announcing more investigations into more of the president's business," he continued.

"This is just the beginning of this new era of congressional oversight."
