Republicans shift their standard for congressional subpoenas

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 6 Jun 2019
  • While in the majority, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee wanted witnesses to comply with congressional subpoenas. Now in the minority, some have backed off calls for witnesses to comply with congressional subpoenas, even telling some witnesses to ignore them. Subscribe to The Washington Post on IDclips:

    These arguments from the Senate Judicial Committee sound like the 10yr olds on the ball field trying to call a play. They really don't know what their talking about but the one who kicks up enough dust gets a parent to shut down the argument.
    Come oh Dems, we need a parent in the game now.

    We're tired of the hypocrisy and corruption in the Republican party. How dare you display such indignation. As bad as McConnell denying supreme court justice nomination in 2016 b/c of upcoming election 2017. Now he says it's ok to put up a nomination if one comes available.

    The coup failed, folks. Sorry. The continuing attempt to "investigate" as a way to stave of the coming arrests just doesn't work anymore. What ever happened to double jeopardy, Nadler?? All of the criminals, including Obama and Hillary, are going to be punished. Get over it.

    How dare the Republicans change their standard on anything, the Democrats are always consistent about their policies they never waver. How dare the evil racist misogynist Republicans not comply with subpoenas all the Democrats are trying to do is save this country and find a crime that they believe happened. It's the Democrats job to do oversight, so they must investigate all the time 24/7 nothing is more important. It doesn't matter if the Democrats have no evidence they should get the benefit of the doubt because they are all good honorable people who only want the best for the American people except for people who don't share their political views.

    That's laughable! And apples to oranges I might add! We are talking years, literally years of trying to get RR to turn over documents, with very little testimony. And you compare it to a couple weeks, that has many hours of testimony to go with it! Good try though! But of course the sheep will get in line!

    These are the same guys who said nothing to see here and move on and are saying it okay if a Republican come close to breaking a law or obstructing justice but that's just fine but if some Democrat has an affair in the White House and was impeached for 1 count of lying and one count of Obstruction of Justice. The Republican finds it okay for their guy it's okay to play loose with the Russian and have Obstruction of Justice ten times and their answer is to all this move on nothing to see here.

    If you can't see the difference here, you're a moron. In one case an actual crime was committed, in the other, the people who committed the crime are attempting to deflect and defend themselves against prosecution by accusing an innocent man of a crime that was never even dreamed of.

    Progressive liberals are cancer, and that cancer has infected the entire Democrat party. God help us all if they ever gain any real power back.

    They continuously keep battling back in forth while accomplishing NOTHING!!!! The dang news media are only giving the all who are to blame a platform to spew their garbage. This goes for ALL forms of media. I'm especially disgusted with the news networks who continually keep spreading this venomous crap. We the U.S need to come together and stop all this poisonous stuff.

      Yes this what the problem is. The rich are running America instead of the everyday American. Rhe top 1% now seem to control Anerica.
      The news media has gone totally pathetically crazy that they're reporting on assumptions of people instead of facts. There isn't any true new media out there. EVERYONE of the media networks have anchors that are spewing their own idealism. The government is run by a bunch of childish behavior people. Wasting the tax payers money. This goes for the Democrats and Republicans, House &Senate . The white house too. They should work for the betterment of the American people not for their own ideas.

    It’s just a show from the establishment To make you believe that democracy still exist when the truth is that it’s an oligarchy/ plutocracy. 7 out of 10 hard working Americans are one emergency away from becoming homeless in the richest country in the world. That tells you a lot about what the kind of brain washing is committed by the establishment.

      One thing you say has nothing to do with the other. If you are right, and probably are about the 7 out of 10 living paycheck to paycheck might have something to do with the fact that everyone buys everything on credit. It's the boat, the RV, the continuous dinning out. Even our government operates this way. Our national debt is well over 20 Trillion, so this is a cancer in our society. It seems as well to also be part of our culture to play the victim and not take personal responsibility.
