House investigations of President Trump hit a wall of delay; demands for records, witnesses are mostly on hold


WASHINGTON After the release seven weeks ago of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, House Democrats demanded millions of pages of evidence they said were crucial to understanding both Russian election meddling and the president's conduct.

The House Judiciary Committee scheduled a hearing to question Attorney General William Barr, who blacked out portions of the report. Democrats subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn, a key figure who described President Donald Trump's potential obstruction of justice, for another hearing. And they've negotiated with Mueller himself to testify so Americans could hear directly from the people involved.

After all that, the committee will hear from its first witnesses Monday: a panel of cable television regulars who weren't.

So far, nearly every attempt by House Democrats to air evidence about Trump's conduct during the investigation that shadowed his presidency has run for now, at least into a wall. Barr refused to appear and defied a subpoena to provide Congress the full report. McGahn defied his subpoena under a White House claim of executive privilege, as have other former aides who spoke to investigators about the president's actions. And Mueller said the report should speak for itself.

3. What investigations?

 

It will soon be Steve Kornacki time.

It's too soon.

Are Democrats going to push for John Dowd's disbarment? The SOB is on tape floating a pardon to Flynn's lawyer, obstructing justice, witness tampering, abuse of power.

What is John Dean going to say that we don't already know? Is he going to convince Dems not to impeach, or is he the beginning, the introduction into an impeachment inquiry?

refuses to co-operate with the House Committees.

6. Unfortunately, that won't work since funding also goes through the Senate

and the president has to sign the funding bills.
