What precedent? SCOTUS has never denied the use of this Congressional power, as far as I can tell.

There's a strong implication from people in this thread that Trump should be subject to an illegal or unconstitutional investigation because he's dangerous and evil. That's not a great precedent to set.
I see no such implication. I see a lot of implication that Congress should investigate possible wrongdoing by the President and his administration, which is about as common and precedented as passing bills in Congress.
