Skip to comments.Trump moves to resist House inquiries, setting up fight over congressional subpoena powers
Posted on 04/17/2019 9:46:42 AM PDT by Innovative
President Trumps attorneys and the White House are moving to resist a growing number of congressional requests for information, increasing the likelihood of a protracted legal fight that could test the power of congressional subpoenas.
The building battle will shape how much material House Democrats will be able to obtain about Trumps policies and personal finances through multiple investigations launched by various congressional committees.

What the Dems are trying to do is illegal, there is no legal justification for it.
Also could be considered harassment. IMHO
Nor was the "...collusion..." fiasco...they Dems and radical left where hoping to keep this hidden:
0bama didn’t have any problem ignoring Congressional subpoenas.
It also could be considered an unreasonable search and seizure in violation of the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution. IMHO
Dont give these rear holes anything. Anything!
4th Amendment is a nice try, but since they don’t care about anything criminal it wouldn’t trigger. This is just harassment and impeachment fishing.
It’s bad enough that the intelligence agencies were derailed for political purposes and revealed for their corrupt leadership, now a Dem controlled Hou$e wants to do them one better.
Laws seem to mean nothing anymore,, when you have co-opted the Justice process, you have lost the rudder of the ship of state.
There is that “bill of attainder” thingee that the moronic dems are totally disregarding.
You CANNOT single out a single person...whether he is a janitor, lawyer or President.
Good move! Trump is really getting into the fight and he will win.
Partners in crime.
Top of the hour am radio news reported a poll by AP. A large percentage of responders said Trump should be impeached even if no evidence of collusion with Russia was found. Yep, bet that was a real cross section of voters. Probably 99% democRAT!
Damn the evidence, full speed ahead!! Communism here we come!!
Where is Evelyn Farkus???
Farkas is the gal who famously farked up on broadcast TV
Blabbermouth Obama Defense Deputy Makes Huge Blunder; Admits On MSNBC How They Surveilled Trump
The White House is asking Congress to dig deeper into whether communications of Trump associates were improperly picked up and disseminated during Obama's surveillance operations.
This is after an ex-Obama administration official, Evelyn Farkas, blabbed on broadcast TV, her former colleagues tried to gather such material.
Trump's White House Counsel Don McGahn specifically cited Evelyn Farkas teleised comments in a letter to the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee.
McGahn invited lawmakers to view documents that apparently show surveillance of Trump associates during the transition.

How this ding-dong got to be Obama's Defense Deputy should also be investigated.
If they can’t win impeachment,just make his life hell,so he drops out 2020 race
Dems don't care about his policies. It's all about his personal finances, about which yearly IRS audits have found nothing illegal.
Love the headline. The Dems attack Trump illegally, but Trump is “setting up fight.”
Anyone with the sense of a pissant knows the Demonrats are fishing and have NO reason to subpoena anyone in this political climate. I wish that those bankers would have gotten up and walked out of the room after that horrid POS Al Green starting spewing some of the most awful racist puke I’ve ever heard. We’ve got to find a way to keep these demons at bay........
How can one branch have subpoena power over another equal branch?
