This past week was frustrating for the House committee because the Former White House Counsel Don McGahn has ignored the subpoena that was issued for him to come and testify before the House.
The House now has to decide whether to pursue legal action against McGahn for failing to appear before them to testify.
President Trump and the White House have been ignoring and refusing to provide the House with testimony and documents that are related to their investigations of various people and situations.
When the time came for McGahn to sit before the House Judiciary Committee, he was no where to be found.
Jerrold Nadler, the committee Chairman, was needless to say frustrated.
Jerrold Nadler has stated, “Let me be clear: this committee will hear Mr. McGahn’s testimony, even if we have to go to court to secure it.”
This is the second time in a month that people have stood up the committee and refused to show up for testimony.
Attorney General William Barr was the first this month to not appear for testimony.
This led to the House holding him in contempt for failure to cooperate with the committee.
The question remains what is the House committee looking for by continuing these investigations into people that have done nothing wrong.
These are people just doing the job they were assigned to do, and they are now being investigated for things that according to the Mueller report started with the Democrats failing to deal with issues when Obama was president.
It is clear to everyone that the sessions that are being held are nothing more than a show of power.
Doug Collins, a Representative and top panel Republican, has stated, “This is becoming a regular event. It’s called the circus of Judiciary.”
The idea of placing a chicken on the desk to represent the people not showing up is nothing more than a bullying tactic.
Calling someone a chicken for not showing up for an unfair fight and question time.
The President is seeking a second term in the 2020 elections, and he has good reason to advise people to not cooperate with people seeking to harm the reputations of people under the current administration.
The House committee is seeking anything they can use against the President and his family in an attempt to damage the President’s reputation and credibility. The White House has advised some to disregard the requests of the House.
Nadler has this to say about the issue, “When this committee issues a subpoena, even to a senior presidential adviser, the witness must show up. Our subpoenas are not optional. Mr. McGahn has a legal obligation to be here for this scheduled appearance. If he does not immediately correct his mistake, this committee will have no choice but to enforce this subpoena against him.”
This refusal to show up for the testimony time is right before many congressional leaders leave for home for Memorial Day weekend.
Their time is limited in order to take action.
The Democrats have accused the President of abusing his power. Of course, the House has also done the same thing assuming what the President has done is true. It appears that the House is trying to invent things to investigate because in all reality there is nothing that needs to be investigated.
For once the American people have an honest and reliable President in office with nothing to hide.
McGahn was an important witness during the Mueller investigation.
The President and the rest of the House Republicans have called the committee’s actions as nothing more that harassment pending the upcoming elections.
Of course, the House in response is saying this is all leading to impeachment.
The idea of a Democratic House trying to impeach a President because they do not agree with his policies and leadership is simply wrong.
The actions of the House committee will need to be called on and someone should answer for their actions.
The House would be better spending its time helping to improve things related to helping this country prosper.
So far the House has not done anything worthy noting under the Democratic Party.
