Justice Department says Don McGahn does not have to testify in front of the Congress

May 20, 2019

  Since the Mueller report was released Democrats have seized on the news that Don McGahn testified that the President asked him to fire Robert Mueller as proof that Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice and they have been trying to get him to testify in front of the Congress.

  Jerry Nadler has threatened to hold Don McGahn in Contempt, however today the Justice Department handed down an opinion which states Mr. McGahn cannot be compelled to testify in front of the Congress. Here is more:

The Justice Department says former White House counsel Don McGahn can’t be compelled to testify before Congress about the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.

The department’s Office of Legal Counsel issued an opinion Monday finding that McGahn would have “immunity” as a former presidential adviser. It could clear the way for McGahn to defy a congressional subpoena ordering him to testify by Tuesday.

  This is certainly not going to sit well with the Democrats and their voters but they should be reminded that this decision is the same decision the Justice Department issued back in 2014 when Barack Obama was President.

The Justice Department issued a similar opinion in 2014 that found that close presidential advisers have “absolute immunity” from congressional subpoenas.

  So I just have one thing to say to the Democrats who feel the Trump administration has something to hide and are using this as more proof and that is, how does it feel? Now you know what conservative voters have been complaining about for years. You can no longer claim Donald Trump is trying to hide something in one breath and then in the next breath exclaim that Hillary Clinton was never found guilty of anything.
