DOJ orders House Dems to allow White House lawyers during testimony

8

The DOJ had to publish a memo to House Democrats explaining that committees investigating Trump’s impeachment must allow White House attorneys present or the testimonies will be legally invalid.

CNN reported that the Justice Department explained attempts by impeachment investigators to compel testimony from executive branch witnesses about President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine are “legally invalid” unless they allow for the witnesses to bring a government lawyer.

CNN said it will anger Democrats as it will further the “non-cooperation from the White House.” They are concerned the White House and other agencies will “use it to stymie House depositions.”

The Democrats don’t seem to understand the separation of powers.

Subpoenaed witnesses are not showing up [just like Obama staffers didn’t show up during IRS targeting and Hillary email investigations].

The DOJ says there must be a White House lawyer present to protect privileged information.

The House Intel committee has only allowed personal lawyers.

The five-page memo is limited in scope but there will be future fights over executive privilege. As we said, the Democrats don’t understand the separation of powers.

OLC attorneys cite a DC Circuit court opinion comparing an impeachment inquiry with a grand jury investigation in a criminal probe, setting up the need to meet a high threshold to overcome the protections of the privilege, CNN stated further.

Schiff calls everything “obstruction of justice” and affords no civil rights to the President. He knows he must allow White House attorneys. He simply doesn’t care.

  1. This charade lead by this crazed man should be shut down because is illegal in intent and in means. It’s criminal. Separation of powers doesnt make one branch more powerful than other. I have a problem with the media. They are coconspirators in whatever the result should be.

  2. Until/unless Barr acts against the coup, he is not credible. A letter on how to conduct impeachment is is not action against the massive crimes, which Barr has done nothing about.

  3. TANK GOD, SOMEONE HAS SOME SENSE BOUT THIS WHOLE WITCH HUNG ND ILLEGAL IMPEACHMENT… THAT SOFA KING SCHNIFFY IS CRAZY AND DEMON POSSESED.. WHAT ELSE NEED I SAY… DUH…

  4. If Donald Trump is above the law and can get away with anything he wants to do, no matter the crime i.e. “shoot someone on the street in New York,” as he self proclaimes then , why does he need due process and normal American Civil Rights? He can already do everything and anything the hell he wants to with no repercussions. He can’t have it both ways. He is not king of the United States, only a man some people voted into the office of president.

  5. The clown show trying to impeach Donald trump will eventually completely fall apart, because they have nothing at all that can be used to prosecute him with. You can not prosecute anyone with a pack of lies. No matter how much they to try to investigate him, they will always come up empty handed. What a waste of tax payers money!!!!.
