WASHINGTON — House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s subpoena of former White House counsel Don McGahn is “ridiculous,” President Donald Trump said Wednesday as Democrats continue their investigations of his business and political life.

The president also made clear he and his legal team are dug in for what could be a protracted fight with House Democrats over their demands for witnesses to appear before several committees and requests for documents. Legal experts and political analysts already are predicting court battles and stall tactics that could last well into the 2020 election cycle.

“I say it’s enough. Get back to infrastructure, get back to cutting taxes, get back to lowering drug prices,” Trump told reporters, referring to issues both parties have said could be ripe for bipartisan legislation this year.
