Default Democrats fume as McGahn skips House hearing: ‘Our subpoenas are not optional’

Poor little Jerry Nadler the mean old Trump administration refuses to provide him with a witness for his fried chicken circus masquerading as the House judiciary committee.

Quote:
The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee vowed Tuesday to go to court if necessary to seek former White House Counsel Don McGahn's testimony, after he defied a subpoena and skipped a committee hearing at President Trump's direction.

The move infuriated Democrats and touched off what could be another high-profile battle over holding a Trump official in contempt of Congress.
Never mind that the witness, former WH counsel Don Mcgahn, had been grilled for 30 hours by the special counsel, Nadler was incensed at having his circus denied with a redundant questioning session before the cameras. Instead of taking up important business such as reforming asylum laws to prevent the rampant abuse causing the current border crisis, Nadler threw a tantrum berating an empty chair before terminating the committee meeting after allowing a response to his ranting.

Democrats claim they are able to pursue a legislative agenda while acting on their obsession with destroying Trump. But the show in the House judiciary committee yesterday exposes the claim as a lie.
