#LindseyGrahamResign - fancy hashtag, I guess I will adapt it

“You just show up and plead the Fifth and it’s over with,” Graham told reporters, referring to the amendment that protects citizens from self-incrimination, according to The Washington Post.
But the Democrats are the ones who halt any progress in Congress, am I right? Now, Graham even pushes against his own party just to be the stooge he is supposed to be. Does anyone have a spine left? Because Mr. Graham obviously lacks one.
The group wrote that Graham "has abdicated his responsibilities as a U.S. Senator and has clearly abandoned his oath to uphold the Constitution and defend the rule of law."
It's difficult to argue in reference to the Constitution when he recommends Donnie Jr. to moot the testifying, mentioning the Fifth Amendment. How would that work out? It's a dilemma, if you want so.

DC federal judge decides Trump's tax records were proper subject of investigation

“They have made clear that this is not about legislation. They want to know if there has been any wrongdoing,” Consovoy said. “That is not the purpose of Congress.”

Mehta said that under Consovoy’s argument, many historic investigations by Congress would have been improper, including the probe into the Watergate scandal that forced President Richard Nixon from office.
I am sure that Consovoy would even claim exactly this: That there wasn't any legal ground to investigate Nixon. Anyway, I am sure that he'd rather claim that the HIC, HOC and HJC had no fundamental evidence to justify their investigation, so, what is to say about this but the fact that Mr. Mehta decided well about it.
Mehta was appointed in 2014 by Democratic former President Barack Obama, who was often investigated by Republicans in Congress during his two terms in office.

On Trump and the "Constitutional Crisis"

Drumpf has insisted his administration will not comply with House and Senate Democrats' subpoenas because he claims they are politically motivated. The White House has said Drumpf and his campaign were cleared of collusion and wrongdoing in the special counsel's report.

Drumpf's Sunday evening tweet accuses liberal lawmakers of not focusing on other issues, mainly the surge of noncitizen families illegally entering and applying for asylum at ports of entry along the southern border in record-high numbers.
And so on and so forth... Nothing special, the Washington Examiner just reported on what has been said about the crisis yet, including Trump's lies and misunderstandings. Still, don't the subpoenas for Don McGahn and Steve Mnuchin belong to this constitutional crisis? As for the surge of migrant families arriving at the border, this is a job for the DHS. Regarding this, does this office have an official chairman already? I can't remember this. The Democrats work overtime, this is true,... show more


 

AOC now the youngest woman to preside over Congress

"That was my first time presiding," Ocasio-Cortez said on Monday, according to Reuters. "And it's exciting. It's certainly a view. I wish we could, I wish we were allowed to take photos."

Before Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York was the youngest woman to be elected to the House at 30 years old in 2015. The youngest House representative ever was Rep. William Charles Cole Claiborne of Tennessee at 22 years old in 1797.

Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Donald Trump Jr.


I guess that the "case" is not "closed" yet, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has predicted a few days ago. Now, even the Senate has realised that he cannot stay inactive on this topic anymore, but has to do something about it before the Democrats in the House do it. Thank God Trump has become a bipartisan concern at last.
The subpoena of Drumpf Jr. likely relates to a meeting he had in Drumpf Tower on June 9, 2016, with several Russians, in which Drumpf Jr. expected, based on prior emails, to receive from the Russians "official documents and information that would incriminate" Hillary Clinton as "part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Drumpf."

Mueller's report states that Drumpf Jr.'s emails and meeting with Russians in 2016 "could implicate the federal election-law ban on contributions and donations by foreign nationals," affirming the validity of Common Cause's complaints. But Mueller decided not to criminally prosecute Drumpf Jr. because, in short,

Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that majority of US-Americans favours impeachment process

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi re-emphasized that the leaders of the investigative committees in the Democratic-controlled House were taking a step-by-step approach.
And how long is it about to take until you finally are going to advance the impeach process? Just asking, because only talking about it but not doing anything in the outcome is not going to serve your party well in the 2020 election.
Drumpf is stonewalling at least a half-dozen such inquiries, refusing to disclose his tax returns, invoking executive privilege to keep the unredacted Mueller report under wraps and filing unprecedented lawsuits to block House investigators.

“I bought my own (health) insurance on an Obamacare exchange,” she said. “It’s a huge expense, and I don’t know if Obamacare is going to be amended or taken away. It’s stressful.”

HJC chairman Jerrold Nadler (D - NYC) to hold AG William Barr in contempt for defying subpoa

Nadler's firm stance comes as he seeks punitive actions against the attorney general for defying a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted report on the Russia investigation and its underlying evidence. It also comes hours after the Justice Department put forward a last-ditch plea to negotiate with the panel, offering a Wednesday meeting but later agreeing to Nadler’s demand for a Tuesday sit-down.

A vote of approval from the Democrat-led committee would send the measure to the full House for consideration later this month. Nadler said he would put the contempt proceedings on hold if the Justice Department engages in a “good-faith” effort to give Democrats access to the requested information.

“Congress is therefore the only body able to hold the president to account for improper conduct in our tripartite system, and urgently requires the subpoenaed material to determine whether and how to pr

On Robert Mueller III. and William P. Barr

1. POLITICO:

Barr is conducting the review in parallel with the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who has been examining the FBI’s efforts to surveil a one-time Drumpf campaign adviser, Carter Page. The application to monitor Page was based in part on information from Christopher Steele, the former MI6 agent who authored the bombshell dossier and served as a confidential source for the bureau.

Barr’s critics claimed that “spying” is a loaded term, however, especially after Drumpf deployed the term to discredit the Russia investigation’s origins. They noted that the bureau received a lawful warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to monitor Page. And the said the bureau’s early use of a confidential informant— Cambridge University professor Stefan Halper — was typical of counterintelligence

By suing banks in order to avoid subpoenas, Trump offered impeachment inquiry to Democrats

The president argues that House Democrats issued the subpoenas for illegitimate reasons unconnected to any formal business of Congress. This argument is quite weak under Supreme Court precedent, since Congress has broad constitutional authority to conduct investigations.

In 1975’s Eastland v. United States Servicemen’s Fund, the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause generally bars courts from interfering with congressional subpoenas. The court explained that as long as Congress is operating within the “sphere of legitimate legislative activity” or “with respect to other matters which the Constitution places within the jurisdiction of either House,” the judiciary is flatly forbidden from impeding its subpoena power.

In other words, Congress’ paramount constitutional duty is to “make laws.” To legislate, Congress must investigate; to investigate, Congre

«You either answer our questions or you go to jail», elaborates HOC chairman Elijah Cummings (D - MD)

Some administration officials who applied for clearances were flagged for potential foreign influence risks, according to Tricia Newbold, who has worked at the White House for nearly 20 years under administrations of both parties. Newbold also alleged that Kline retaliated against her when she raised concerns about the clearance process.

“I’m going to make it clear — and my staff will make it clear — that if he comes in there tomorrow and if all he wants to talk about is process, which we already know, and does not want to talk about his actions with regard to retaliation and what happened in these cases, then we will move forward to take whatever action we have to take to enforce our subpoena,” Cummings told POLITICO.

According to Cummings, the White House has not turned over any documents in response to the committee’s requests for information about the security clearance process

Trump family business sues banks in order to prevent them from complying with subpoenas


Quite a dirty trick to play, huh? Well, it won't help Trump to uphold a clean vest; I mean, what does he expect it to display, when he obviously sues them just to avoid seeing them being subpoenaed? This is like standing on Time Square with a loudspeaker and screaming "They have got nothing to hide in relation to me, but don't you dare subpoenaing them, I would sue your arse likewise until you beg for mercy! They have got nothing to hide, so leave them alone, for Pete's sake!" It's simply not something a man who has got nothing to fear would do. It simply isn't.
“The subpoenas were issued to harass President Donald J. Drumpf, to rummage through every aspect of his personal finances, his businesses, and the private information of the President and his family, and to ferret about for any material that might be used to cause him political damage. No grounds exist to establish any purpose other than a political one,” the complaint states.

IRS to release new deadline for Trump's tax returns next month

Neal, who had set a 5 p.m. Tuesday deadline for the IRS to turn over the documents, said in a statement that he plans to "consult with counsel about my next steps.” He is likely to subpoena the documents at some point and, given the administration’s resistance to subpoenas issued or threatened by other committees, the dispute is expected to wind up in court.

"It's already been litigated in the court of public opinion and in the election. The president won it fairly and squarely," he said. "He's the president, and no one cares about ridiculous charges about tax returns and all types of other things Democrats are doubling down on today."

Drumpf is suing House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to block a subpoena of Drumpf’s financial records from an accounting firm, Mazars USA. Cummings wants the bank records to investigate allegations that Drumpf falsely inflated and deflated asset values to benefit himself, but the president’s lawyers

Trump sues House Oversight chairman Elijah Cummings over subpoena of financial records

The complaint, filed in federal court in Washington, says the subpoena from Rep. Elijah Cummings “has no legitimate legislative purpose” and accuses Democrats of harassing Drumpf and wielding their new majority in Congress to try to stain the president’s standing.
According to him, the subpoena had no legitimate legislative purpose and served to harass him amid the regained political power in Congress. At least to me, there is a purpose, namely to investigate probable tax evasion cases. There was no real need to hide the tax returns from the public, especially since every sitting president did so in terms of transparency and honesty before the American people.
Interesting, isn't it? The failed businessman trying to hide his tax returns. This screams criminality so loud it's almost ripping my eardrums.
The lawsuit accuses Cummings of failing to consult with Republicans on the panel before issuing the subpoena and says he re

_The Jerusalem District Court rejected an appeal by Omar Shakir to remain in the country, saying that his activities against Israel’s West Bank settlements amount to a boycott of the country.__
So far, as I read in the Jerusalem Post in my RSS Feed, attacks against Palestinian villages were experienced recently; the attackers were West Bank settlers, and were even joined by police forces. Thus, how would protests against those illegal settlements cause a reason to deport someone? This is strange.

The court said that Shakir “continues his actions publicly to advance a boycott against Israel, but it’s not on the

WH adviser Stephen Miller to be told to testify before Senate Democrats

Miller was reportedly the author of the idea of sending foreign detainees to so-called "sanctuary cities" to needle Democratic-governed jurisdictions which have declared they will limit their cooperation with federal authorities seeking to round up and deport immigrants in the country illegally. According to a report in The New York Times, Miller became audibly agitated and frustrated in a conference call with administration officials, angry that so many people seeking refuge in the United States were passing the first legal hurdle of having a "credible fear" of persecution if they were sent back to their home countries. Miller, the Times said, citing others on the call, seemed to want immigration authorities to find a way around the law Congress wrote.

"Steve Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies," House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, Democrat of New York, said on CNN's "

HIC Democrats subpoena German lender Deutsche Bank amid Trump investigation

In addition to the Deutsche Bank subpoena, House Democrats subpoenaed other banks — including JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup — seeking information on Russian money laundering. The issuance of the subpoenas was first reported by The New York Times.

“As part of our oversight authority and authorized investigation into allegations of potential foreign influence on the U.S. political process, the House Intelligence Committee today issued subpoenas to multiple financial institutions in coordination with the House Financial Services Committee, including a friendly subpoena to Deutsche Bank, which has been cooperative with the Committees,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the House Intelligence chairman. “We look forward to their continued cooperation and compliance.”

“My colleagues across the aisle continue to politicize the banking industry and set out on partisan fishing expeditions,“ said Rep.

On the hearing of Wells Fargo before the House (feat. AOC, Maxine Waters et al.)


That’s not all. Over the past several years, Wells Fargo has been slapped with fines for abuses involving members of the military (including charging them higher interest rates, improperly repossessing their cars without a court order, and not disclosing their military status to courts while trying to evict them), numerous allegations of racism, and other consumer abuses.

“The past few years have taught us that our company does well by doing right. But doing right does not stop with simply repairing harm and rebuilding trust,” Sloan, who was last seen in the halls of Congress getting dragged to hell and back by Elizabeth Warren, said in prepared remarks.

Several Democrats, such as Rep. Carolyn Maloney and Ayanna Pressley, used their turns to sharply criticize Wells Fargo for its relationship with the NRA and the firearms industry. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, meanwhile, slammed the bank for having its grubby paws all over some of the wor... show more

Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters condemns US sanctions on Venezuela


In selfie footage he said was to be played at the ‘Hands Off Venezuela’ concert organised by embattled socialist president Nicolás Maduro, Waters also suggested US-led aid headed for the country was the precursor for a coup or invasion.

Slowly I start to doubt Mr. Waters' involvement in political actions, and his constant statements on the Middle Eastern conflict. To praise Assange and defend Maduro is a doubtworthy action that shows a strange understanding of what is going on there, or what Mr. Assange is doing. What comes next? A video contribution on Ron Paul's Youtube channel?

It came just days after he criticised Richard Branson for organising a separate concert – on the Colombian side of the border – to raise aid for people suffering there.
