House Judiciary Committee to issue subpoenas for Jared Kushner and many others associated with Trump Administration.

Things just got real.

The House Judiciary Committee will vote on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for 12 of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s witnesses — including President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his former deputy Rod Rosenstein, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former chief of staff John Kelly and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

Each of the witnesses provided crucial testimony to Mueller about Trump’s efforts to thwart the Russia investigation, and the committee’s efforts are certain to meet resistance from a White House that has already blocked testimony from senior aides like former White House Counsel Don McGahn and former longtime adviser Hope Hicks.

The barrage of subpoena authorizations represents a major expansion of the committee’s Trump-focused investigation, casting a wider net from obstruction of justice to hush-money payments. The committee has faced repeated resistance from the White House as it investigates obstruction of justice allegations against the president.

A majority of the committee’s Democrats already favor launching formal impeachment proceedings against the president, and the number is likely to grow after Mueller testifies next week before the Judiciary and Intelligence committees.

Things are certainly heating up, aren’t they?

I imagine that Trump will try to block the majority of these by liberally using the executive privilege excuse of other legal maneuvers. 

They are already trying to keep some of Robert Mueller’s deputies from telling Congress what they know.

House Democrats are attempting to make arrangements for two of special counsel Robert Mueller’s deputies to appear for a private, closed-door testimony on the same day that Mueller is set to testify — July 17.

But the Justice Department has reportedly instructed the two special counsel staffers, James Quarles and Aaron Zebley, not to appear.

According to new reports in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, The DOJ’s interference could muddy the deal that the department and lawmakers reached last month to get Mueller’s testimony.

While both former Mueller associates are no longer in the special counsel’s office — and the DOJ may not actually be able to block their testimony — Attorney General William Barr already threatened in an interview with the Associated Press earlier this week that he would step in to resist any subpoena aimed at Mueller’s deputies.

You know there is really no way to argue that this is not obstruction.

And it is happening right out in the open where every American can witness it. 

I think that might make a big difference in the 2020 elections. 

I really do.

    What’s the use of subpeoas??? So they can say that they don’t remember when asked questions, or armed with lawyers telling them they don’t have to answer at all?

    “The other curious fact uncovered in the story is Epstein’s connection to Deutsche Bank, an institution that has frequently popped up in reporting about Trump’s questionable financial history. The bank has also come under fire for its own shady practices, and it has been caught in a Russian money laundering scheme.”

    “Trump can’t block all of these witnesses from testifying

    Trump can only block those who worked for him in the White House from testifying. He can’t stop anyone associated with Stormy Daniels hush money felonies from appearing before the House Judiciary Committee.”

    And we’re off…

    The Epstein scandal is spreading. While the feeble and inept president waits for guidance from his television, the rage of a nation is growing toward the Republican Party. McConnell is replicating the same behavior that caused Republicans to lose the House. Protecting Trump at all cost could end up costing Mitch McConnell his job.

    Mueller is only testifying for 4 hours, 2 hrs for traitor republicans 2 hrs for Democrats to ask questions, I sure hope they don’t WASTE our time with their “introductory statements’ to each question. Just ASK the questions and keep the grand standing for another time !!
