You can almost hear Vladimir Putin saying “Nyet” to this.

House Democrats have considered subpoenaing Donald Trump’s Russian interpreter, or the translator’s notes from private conversations between the president and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The congressional Democrats plan to significantly expand their ongoing investigation into the president and his connections to Russia, according to a report from Axios. In addition to seeking to determine what was said in private talks between Trump and Putin, Democratic lawmakers plan to interview new and former witnesses, and closely examine the president’s and his family’s finances.

Trump’s private talks with Putin have been the subject of speculation and concern since the two leaders met for a summit in Helsinki last summer. In January, The Washington Post reported that the president had gone to “extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations” with his Russian counterpart. “U.S. officials said there is no detailed record, even in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader at five locations over the past two years,” reported The Post.

After one 2017 meeting with Putin, Trump reportedly asked his State Department interpreter for her notes and instructed her not to discuss the meeting with other administration officials. Analysts have criticized the president’s alleged actions, arguing that keeping the discussions private violated protocol and allowed the Russians to hijack the narrative.

Yeah, I think that we definitely need to hear from this person. 

This is not the only subpoena the Democrats are likely to authorize, they have all kinds of plans for getting to the bottom of Trump’s entanglements with the Russians.

Mueller is just the beginning. House Democrats plan a vast probe of President Trump and Russia — with a heavy focus on money laundering — that will include multiple committees and dramatic public hearings, and could last into 2020.

The state of play: The aggressive plans were outlined yesterday by a Democratic member of Congress at a roundtable for Washington reporters. The member said Congress plans interviews with new witnesses, and may go back to earlier witnesses who “stonewalled” under the Republican majority.

The reporters, many of them steeped in the special counsel’s investigation, came away realizing that House Dems don’t plan to depend on Robert Mueller for the last word on interference in the 2016 election.

Instead, Dems will use their new subpoena power to produce a voluminous exposé of their own.

At least three committees are already involved: The House Intelligence Committee is taking the lead, coordinating with House Financial Services on money-laundering questions and with House Foreign Affairs on Russia.

It appears that Trump is about to take fire from a number of different directions.

The only question to ask is who will bring him down first, Robert Mueller or the House Democrats, many of whom were recently elected to do just that?

    Hope they nail the crooked bastard. His so called base believes he is god. We know what happens when humans believe a human is god right? People start listening to them and obeying their crimes against humanity.

    Years from now when historians look back on this period, they will undoubtedly state that Donnie Dotard was, at the minimum, compromised by the Russians, and that he did not act in the best interests of the U.S but in the interests of Russia. The historians will also note that many elected republicans, including Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, and Lindsey Graham were complicit in this. What’s still to be determined is exactly why they all acted this way.

      Symbols connote. Symbols do not denote.

      We are living “links”.

      12-step people are mostly stuck in concretization of a disease (especially the longterm ones, who have fused themselves to disease; the fusion itself IS the sickness, the error, the ignorance) – their brand of literal idolatry (don’t tell them that, they dismiss you or look at you with sorrow).

      We are born with nature’s approval. Becoming conscious and convinced of nature, seeing that nature, and remaining open to it as a living experiencer and cocreator, is a lifelong affair. Or you do its destructive opposite, which means literalizing and separating and idolizing and rendering impotent, getting guns and building walls and fighting, and drinking and drugging, “being a sinner”, “having permanent addiction”, etc etc. ONLY the ignorant idolize and concretize. So basically, its no accident there’s all this reality show BS, which all started with american IDOL, which, if you watch, are participating in the ignorance. We always have a choice. Hence, evolution – not in the Darwinian sense but in the sense of spiritual transformation. And hence, karma and reincarnation, which nearly all westerners are ignorant of (even those that say they aren’t). The choice is not always conscious or felt, but it is there, waiting to become conscious. It can’t not be.

      Or you can be lazy and choose an idol. Or at a minimum, pick up the phone and dial when ABC tells you to call and vote the next slut off the island.

      Personally I think if Obama had been a republican they wouldn’t have had a problem with him, republicans are sore losers.

        “Toward the end of the conversation, the president brought up the subject of my wife. Jill had run unsuccessfully for the Virginia state Senate back in 2015, and the president had said false and malicious things about her during his campaign in order to tarnish the FBI. He said, How is your wife? I said, She’s fine. He said, When she lost her election, that must have been very tough to lose. How did she handle losing? Is it tough to lose?
        I replied, I guess it’s tough to lose anything. But she’s rededicated herself to her career and her job and taking care of kids in the emergency room. That’s what she does.
        He replied in a tone that sounded like a sneer. He said, “Yeah, that must’ve been really tough. To lose. To be a loser.””

    What is with is “may” subpoena, they “must” subpoena, we have a right to know what the so called president is saying to our enemy,

    It will probably prove to be a waste of time because I seriously doubt if the translator would tell the truth anyway.

    Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a “poor little Angel” when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax – a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of “insurance policy” in case I won….
    5:39 AM – Feb 14, 2019
    ….Many of the top FBI brass were fired, forced to leave, or left. McCabe’s wife received BIG DOLLARS from Clinton people for her campaign – he gave Hillary a pass. McCabe is a disgrace to the FBI and a disgrace to our Country. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

    ““The most illuminating and surprising thing in the interview to me were these 8 days in May… There were meetings at the Justice Dept, in which it was discussed whether the VP and a majority of the cabinet could be brought together to remove the POTUS under the 25th Amendment””
