Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said it is time for impeachment inquiries to be opened if former White House Counsel Don McGahn is a no-show to Tuesday's scheduled congressional hearing.
Cicilline, a member of the Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee, appeared on MSNBC and offered his reaction that the White House is instructing McGahn to refuse to comply with a subpoena to appear on Capitol Hill and the assurance from the Department of Justice that McGahn has "immunity" which does not legally require him to testify before Congress, something Cicilline believed was "legally incorrect."
"Let me be clear; if Don McGahn doesn't testify, it is time to open an impeachment inquiry," Cicilline said. "The president has engaged in an ongoing effort to impede our ability to find the truth, to collect evidence, to do our work, and this is preventing us really from ultimately finding the facts and doing our work in terms of oversight.

What an absolute backbencher nitwit. What kind of lunatic votes these wastes of space into office? Doesn’t this fool have any understanding of the Constitution ? ??
At this point, I almost hope they move to impeach. That will waste the rest of 2019 up till the election. They aren’t getting anything done anyway. And as the Spygate stuff comes out, they will look dumber and dumber. You’d have to be completely mental to care about the minutia Dems are flogging now. At the end of the day, the Senate won’t go along anyway.
Trump can campaign on coup obstructionism.
If evilness and insanity would hurt, he would be screaming in pain.
Keep escalating, somethings gotta give eventually.
Would the Representative care to quote the authorizing source of his “oversight” claim?
I call this guy Chicolini - that was Chico Marx’s character in the classic, Duck Soup.
See if you think this Groucho line from the movie fits:
“Gentlemen, Chicolini here may talk like an idiot, and look like an idiot. But don’t let that fool you. He really is an idiot.”
The dirtbag is a dissatisfied liar — typical Democrat Thug.
They, evilness and insanity, are requirements to being Democrats in the first place.
demanding that the WH lawyer testify in Congress is so obviously a constitutional problem.... it amazes me just how much nerve these D’s have!
I may demand that the bank empty its vault for me... why not? its a more legal demand than what congress is trying to do
Hey dipshit, if you have evidence of the crime that justifies impeachment, bring it on as I’m all ears. Otherwise,STFU.
I think there’s something going on within the Democrat party that the media will never report. Starting with the Kavanaugh hearings, I’ve been hearing longtime Democrats in my neck of the woods putting some major distance between themselves and the party’s ever-growing lunatic fringe. One woman who has been a very active local Democrat officer for years flat out said, “Those aren’t REAL Democrats.”
Well honey, they are now.
It’s obvious fear/madness has set in on the Democratic party. They can’t believe how things have turned against them. Now they are in the cross-hairs after planning a “perfect coup.”
They have no idea who they’re up against.
House Judiciary Chairman Nadler: Trump is making it ‘more difficult’ not to consider impeachment
We have to be over the target or at least in the beginning of our bombing run.
Well, Nancy says your idea is dumb and DOA...
