The Democrats in Congress have no agenda. Instead of working to improve the lives of the American people who elected them, they are singularly focused on their desperate attempt to take down a sitting President before the 2020 election. But after two and a half years of being unfairly targeted by the Democrat Party and their allies in the mainstream media, President Trump is finally is saying…enough!
On April 22, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn for “testimony and documents” as part of the panel’s sweeping obstruction probe into President Donald Trump.
“Mr. McGahn is a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Mueller report,” the New York Democrat said. “His testimony will help shed further light on the president’s attacks on the rule of law, and his attempts to cover up those actions by lying to the American people and requesting others do the same. Nadler wants McGahn to appear before his panel next month.
Nadler has subpoenaed the Justice Department for the full, unredacted report and said Sunday he was adding McGahn to the list of people he would call to testify before his committee, along with Mueller and Attorney General William Barr.

On May 7 Hogan Gidley, White House principal deputy press secretary told Fox News host White House counsel Don McGahn does not have the legal right to disclose the unredacted Mueller documents and Rep. Jerry Nadler does not have the right to see them. Gidley reminded everyone the 99% of the report has been sitting in an undisclosed location, but not one Democrat has taken the time to read it. Gidley claims the Democrats have pushed a lie on the American people for two years and are embarrassed to admit it.
Now, the White House has released a statement informing the House Judiciary that at the direction of the President, Don McGahn will not appear at tomorrow’s hearing.
“The Department of Justice has provided a legal opinion stating that, based on long-standing, bipartisan, and Constitutional precedent, the former Counsel to the President cannot be forced to give such testimony, and Mr. McGahn has been directed to act accordingly,” press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Monday.
“This action has been taken in order to ensure that future Presidents can effectively execute the responsibilities of the Office of the Presidency.”
WH informs House Judiciary that at the direction of the president, former WH Counsel Don McGahn will not appear at tomorrow’s hearing to give testimony. Current WH Counsel Pat Cipollone cites DOJ opinion that McGahn is “absolutely immune” from providing compelled testimony.
