Former White House counsel Don McGahn must obey subpoena to testify before Congress, judge rules

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”.

not 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.
Someone really needs to read the court decision on this one.

Well, there you go, then.

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.

What about the “King” thing?  Didn’t any Freeper take objection to that? Didn’t any Freeper actually READ the linked article? Or is it just a case of :

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”?

Or 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.
That’s one strategy.

Yup – Crazy Joey Gallo thought so.

Anywhoo – I did a word search on Freeperville on these two threads for the word “King”.

Zero hits.

Why, it’s like none of them wanted to mention the emperor’s  King’s new clothes.

How’s this, you fucking coward – since there’s no Red Flag laws yet, grab your AK-47 and lie in wait for RBG outside her home. When you see her, open fire. Show the courage of your convictions.
