Trump, Democrats spar over oversight

White House counsel Don Mcgahn

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Democrats for their consistent calls to subpoena anyone close to President Donald Trump on Sunday, saying they are not actually focused on fixing problems.

Fitton, as the president of the organization, has often criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, and during his interview with Dobbs said Democrats continuing the charade is 'just another abuse of power'.

John Sununu said Monday on "America's Newsroom" that House Democratic leaders would have to be "dumb" to believe that a federal court would force Attorney General William Barr to break the law.

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have subpoenaed McGahn for documents and testimony, but McGahn has declined to comply, deferring to the White House.

Last week, President Donald Trump invoked blanket executive privilege over special counsel Robert Mueller's full report, preventing the House Judiciary Committee - which had previously subpoenaed the Justice Department for a full, underacted version of the report - from obtaining it. According to the US-based media reports, the Ex-White House Counsel was one of the key witnesses during Robert Mueller's investigation into the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election. McGahn apparently mulled. "We did not perceive it as any kind of threat or something sinister", says McGahn's lawyer, William Burck, in a statement.

After losing his card in 2013, he played on the Web.com Tour for three years and then regained his PGA Tour card in 2016. The Indian hit 14 of 18 greens in regulation in his first round and had no less than five birdies.

The White House, Groves said, "will not and can not comply" with what he called "unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats".

According to analysis by the Washington Post, the president and his allies are working to block more than 20 investigations and, House Democrats say, at least 79 Congressional requests for documents, testimony and other evidence. "It was a request, professionally and cordially made".

The Wall Street Journal also reported late Friday that McGahn "rebuffed" a request from White House officials to issue a statement declaring that Trump did not obstruct justice.

Mueller's report, though, detailed 10 instances of possible obstruction by Mr. Trump, including by unsuccessfully ordering McGahn to fire Mueller in the summer of 2017.

President Donald Trump is trying to stop the many investigations surrounding him. In several cases, the special counsel wrote, there was substantial evidence that the president sought to obstruct the probe, including in his interactions with McGahn.
