White House Orders Former Trump Aides to Defy House Subpoenas

The White House has ordered two former Trump aides to defy subpoenas from House committees hoping to continue their impeachment push.

According to The Hill:

The White House has ordered two former aides to President Trump to defy their subpoenas to appear at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.

White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the panel that the Justice Department recommended and Trump directed Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter to go against their subpoenas due to “constitutional immunity.”

The letter said the two were told not to go “because of the constitutional immunity that protects senior advisers to the president from compelled congressional testimony, and in order to protect the prerogatives of the Office of President.”

Democrats are legally objecting to the ability to declare “absolute immunity” in a suit against former White House counsel Don McGahn.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is expected to testify but his testimony is likely to be limited due to executive privilege.

TRUMP ONLY HAS THREE GOOD WAYS OF REACHING THE PEOPLE.
1- TWITTER 24 MILLION VIEWERS WHO LIKE HIM.
2- ON THE WAY TO THE CHOPPER PRESS CONFERENCE.
3-RALLY’S WHICH THE MEDIA TRIES NOT TO COVER.

DON’T BE SURPRISED IF, AS PRESIDENT TRUMP GETS CLOSE TO NOVEMBER 2020, THAT TWITTER BLOCKS HIM. WE ARE STILL IN AN OBAMUNIST COUP. JUST ASK THE LEFT B. I.

LIBERAL IS A CODE WORD FOR COMMUNIST. REPUPPIES AND RINO RATS ARE AFRAID TO SAY COMMUNIST BECAUSE THEY ARE LABEL TRAINED. RACIST IS THE BIG ONE.IF THEY CALL A DEMOCRAT A COMMUNIST OUT COMES THE MCCARTHYITE LABEL.THAT SHUTS THEM RIGHT DOWN. THEY CRAWL INTO A CORNER AND LICK THEIR WOUNDS. COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK. THEY LICK EVERYBODY’S WOUNDS. MOST OF THE WOUNDS ARE SELF INFLICTED. AFTER THE SOVIET UNION FAKED COLLAPSE AMERICA GOT TO SEE SECRET VERONA PAPERS. THEY PROVED THAT MCCARTHY WAS RIGHT MORE TIMES THAN WRONG. IMAGINE THE LIST HE WOULD HAVE TODAY? WHAT SAY YOU COMRADE NADLER?

Abu Tom NEW YORK JUSTICE:
VANCE WORKS NOT FOR THE PEOPLE BUT FOR THE NEW IMPROVED COMMUNIST PARTY. ALL THESE HEARINGS ARE COMMUNIST SHOW TRIALS. THE ONLY ONE THEY HAVE NOT GIVEN A SUBPOENA TO IS CARDINAL MINDSZENTY.

JIHAD SQUAD: WHEN SADAAM INVADED KUWAIT HE ROUNDED UP KUWAIT’S MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS TOOK THEM TO THE KUWAIT ZOO AND THEY WERE RAPED BY IRAQI TROOPS POURING IN. MOST OF HIS VICTIMS HAD THE CHILDREN OF THE RAPE. I BELIEVE ABORTION IS HARAM IN THE KORAN. CHECK IT OUT. IF I AM RIGHT. THEN ASK THE MOSLEM MEMBERS OF THE DEMOCRAT JIHAD SQUAD WHAT THEIR POSITION IS ON ABORTION.

OK Patriots, and ALL AMERICAN-HEARTED PEOPLE, it’s time to bring back a wonderful old slogan…
When a leftist/liberal/ looney starts to talk about something unconstitutional, “JUST SAY NO”!
When a demonrat starts to call out without facts or names, (as we see in the news again, with three years of their lying BS), “JUST SAY NO!”
IT is time for America loving people, to “JUST SAY NO!”
WE THE PEOPLE, JUST SAY NO, to everything the left is trying to do criminally. WE THE PEOPLE, NEED not accept their political correct lies, their gender lies, their anti GOD lies.
THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED BY ANGRY RELIGIOUS MEN AND WOMEN, THAT JUST SAID NO, TO OPPRESSION, SEDITION AND TREASON. WE ARE NOW FIGHTING IT AGAIN.
WE NOW HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT BELIEVES IN ALL OF THAT, AND WE HAVE TO SUPPORT THIS MOVEMENT, AND TAKE OUT THE TOTAL CORRUPTION IN GOVERNMENT, THAT LIVES FOR POWER AND MONEY NO MATTER THE COST. TREASON HAS TO STOP…..NOW!
“JUST SAY NO!”
WWG1WGA-WORLDWIDE!

This will never be over for the deep state; the real one, not what the media thinks it is. At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, the Dems are just a tool for the real money and power. That’s all I have to say as I will be leaving this site because the endless ads have taken over another conservative site.
