    Remember Watergate? Iran-Contra? Travelgate? Whitewater? BJgate? Fast and Furious? The IRS probe? The nine Benghazi investigations?

    Remember all those congressional investigations of presidential wrongdoing?

    Well, you must have been imagining things. Trump and his GOP enablers now argue that Congress does not have the authority to investigate presidential wrongdoing.

    Yup, it’s official - the Trump/Barr/GOP position is that Trump is above the law, as Trump announces that he will not comply with any congressional subpoenas and will not cooperate with any such congressional investigations.

    New rules!

    Welcome to our new banana republic...

    have those five or six Democratic Congress persons that have access to the unredacted Mueller report taking the time to read it in it's unredacted form yet?

    That in and of itself could be considered investigating. At worst it may trigger additional investigating.

    Why do you think they have not taken the opportunity to read it yet?

    It doesn't have anything to do with the thread topic, just deflect and diversion, AS USUAL!

    I can't wait for the spin on this one, Fox didn't even mention this this morning at the gym. Instead they featured a " only see it here, ground breaking, earth shattering " Hannity report on the deep state. Can't wait for the judge to weigh in on this also.

    It answers yours directly. A readily available exhaustive investigation summary sits available. Let them read it.

    Well I am sure when they read it OUT LOUD that will stop your Hannity based investigation, right?

    No. It's an investigatory product. They're conducting one or not?

    Congress can subpoena whatever the hell they want, They can investigate whatever the hell they want, and the can conduct the investigation however the hell they want.
    There are no qualifications set by the executive. That's not the way it works.
