A former adviser to Hillary Clinton, Mark Penn, said President Donald Trump can fight the incoming Democratic House with his attorney general and begin to “investigate the investigators,” on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.

Penn said he’s skeptical the White House will be investigated any further, because special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has already put many administration officials under a microscope. (RELATED: Kellyanne Conway Says Nancy Pelosi Didn’t Mention ‘Investigations And Subpoenas’ On Election Night Call With Trump)

“I doubt this White House is going to see more investigations because they’ve been through the most intensive investigation in history with the Mueller investigation, where virtually everybody was put under a spotlight,” Penn said.


Penn said he believes the real target of House Democrats is Trump’s business empire and his personal finances, but said the president has options when it comes to fending them off.

“I think the real thing is Democrats may go after some of Trump’s business enterprises,” Penn declared. “But, on the other hand, they’ve got the Mueller report waiting. So, since they probably should wait for that report and that’s the big kahuna of investigations.”

“But really, on the other side, Trump now can appoint a new attorney general who might appoint a second independent counsel and so subpoenas could fly here and every direction — to investigate the investigators,” he added.

Trump tweeted about a possible investigation from the Democrats early Wednesday morning and said if they insist on investigating him, he will be forced to investigate them for leaking classified information.
