Trump says he is opposed to White House aides testifying to Congress, deepening power struggle with Hill


President Trump on Tuesday said he is opposed to current and former White House aides providing testimony to congressional panels in the wake of the special counsel report, intensifying a power struggle between his administration and House Democrats.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Trump said that complying with congressional requests was unnecessary after the White House cooperated with special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís probe of Russian interference and the presidentís own conduct in office.

ďThere is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where itís very partisan ó obviously very partisan,Ē Trump said.

ďI donít want people testifying to a party, because that is what theyíre doing if they do this,Ē Trump said.

1. Tribe: This isn't a legal argument at all. It's a dictator's tantrum





This isnít a ďlegalĒ argument at all and barely pretends to be. Itís a dictatorís pout or a tantrum masquerading as an argument. Itís certainly not based on genuine executive privilege.

9. Exactly! Every time drumpf is given a mulligan, he ups the ante and cheats that much more.

He uses everything in his and PUtin's battle to destroy America for their own personal profit and enjoyment. Every step he wants to take is down the dictatorship road and repugs are all in on it, the oligarchs have united and we are fucked. When/if SCOTUS ratifies his unconstitutional $$ grab, our constitutional way of government will be in it's final throes and the worldwide rw oligarchs will be in ascendency and the rot will multiply exponentially. Only Roberts could preserve our union and uphold our constitution, but I doubt he will.

3. John Dean tweet about this article:





Trump says he is opposed to White House aides testifying to Congress. Unless the witness agrees Trump canít stop them without a court order, which would be unprecedented and doubtful. He canít gag his former aides, and it is criminal to threaten them.

10. He doesn't give a shit about legality - never crosses his mind.

He's a criminal through and through. Barr just lied and basically showed there's no crime by drumpf so bad that he won't cover it up and lie about it publicly - murder is not a step too far in this sycophants' book and America doesn't matter one bit - just party power and the rich.

4. WHO gives a FUCK what HE wants.

This is a country of laws, Spanky. Deal with it or resign.

I am so sick of this criminal wiping his ass with the Constitution, I could puke blood.

7. He was "unable to recall" much.

Maybe past and present aides can fill in a few blanks.

8. Geez. This in itself would justify impeachment for any other president.

The whole Republican party has been fossilized with corruption from head to toe.
