How do you independently investigate people who control the committees and agencies responsible for the investigations?
You don't, unless the party in power agrees to an independent counsel. And so far the party in power is opposed to any investigation other than lip service.
True. So, purely as a hypothetical, if the intelligence community had gathered evidence that incriminated people within a new administration, what could they do with it?
Obviously they couldn't take it to the president, if the president was incriminated.
Could they take it to Congress (quietly) by reaching out to individuals deemed to be trustworthy?
Or in this scenario is such evidence more likely to be "leaked" to the press, simply as a way of getting it out?
The evidence is already being leaked by members of the White House staff and the intelligence community. They will continue to dribble it out until Trump is gone and Pence takes over.
Anyone is naive if they think the Sessions leak that came out 24 hours after Trump's successful Congressional speech was just a coincidence of timing. They are even more naive if they think the leak came from the Democrats.
In this day and age, with half the country denying everything, it will take much more public pressure to force Congress to act than it did with Nixon or the Clinton impeachment.
Of course it would take you TWO guys to think that Congress IS controlled by the white house , I think you seriously need to go back to government 101 ! Because one or both can seem apathetic to accomplishing anything at all , certainly doesn't mean one is controlled by the other .

President Trump has stated that he found out former President Obama wiretapped him and has evidence to prove it. He has called for Congress to investigate.Question: Why would President Trump ask Congress to investigate when he already has the evidence to prove his claim?

I'm struggling to keep up with all this. Is Trump really planning to attack North Korea if they do another nuclear test? Is it seriously being considered as a possibility? Or is it just sabre rattling? And is this type of brinksmanship the best approach to foreign policy?
