WASHINGTON — A federal judge ruled late Monday that former White House counsel Don McGahn must obey a subpoena for his testimony issued by the House Judiciary Committee.
Federal District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson said McGahn must appear before Congress but retains the ability to “invoke executive privilege where appropriate” during his appearance. The judge did not put her own ruling on hold, but the Trump administration will likely seek one to put the effect of her ruling on hold while it pursues an appeal.
“It is clear to this Court for the reasons explained above that, with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist,” Jackson said in her ruling
(Inexplicably left out of the above excerpt by the poster, for some reason 🙂
Judge Jackson also explicitly said the president “does not have the power” to stop his aides from responding to subpoenas from Congress – adding that “presidents are not kings”.
To: Berlin_Freepernot true, they can be forced to show up but still trump can claim executive privileged(sic) and they don’t have to say a word.
Affirmative Action judge.
Actually no. Getting into Harvard could easily be through AA; however, graduating magna cum laude can only be done through talent. Same with Harvard Law where she graduated cum laude. Udumbo was an AA slacker dullard. Not this one, though.
A federal judge has ruled…
He says breathlessly.YAWN!…BFD.
If YOU had donated to FR,you would know that there is an option to donate anonymously. Some of us use it to avoid tit4tat bullschiff with leftist trolls like you.
The problem you have with that is, I am the one being trolled and we are posting anonymously so why wouldn’t someone simple(sic – I think, anyway) say “I have donated money to FR”?
To: Trump Girl Kit CatOr they could continuously plead the Fifth Amendment.The American people would really like that.They always take kindly to people on live TV taking the Fifth.
