Two things to consider in the various subpoena cases [View all]

1. Kavanaugh cut his teeth working for Ken Starr. It would be entertaining for him, of all people, to support a blanket presidential immunity against investigatory mechanisms.

2. Have a look at the first sentence of today’s decision on the McGahn subpoena:


The first sentence refers to a dispute involving a congressional subpoena of Harriet Meiers.

Do you remember Harriet Meiers? W’s personal attorney whom he appointed to a staff position and then embarrassingly nominated to the Supreme Court?

That Harriet Meiers.

When she left the White House, do you know who got her job next?

That’s right. Justice Beer Bong Weenie Waver.
