White House Decries Investigations: Democrats
Not After the Truth, They Are After
the President

Breitbart Politics, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/5/2019 3:22:00 AM

The White House issued a fiery response Monday to Democrat demands for over 80 people connected to President Donald Trump to hand over documents for investigation. “Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Monday evening. Sanders dismissed the investigation into “tired, false allegations” that she said were already part of the Special Counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller. She criticized Democrats for trying to distract from their disastrous policies like

To all my fellow Americans who aren’t paying attention for whatever reasons, please wake up. The democrat party set a course to fundamentally change this country under Obama. He accomplished many of their goals and HRC was to fininish it. However, along came Trump and put an end to their progress. Therefore, he has to go by any means possible. Americans must realize that the Republic is in grave danger along with the President and anyone who supports him. These fascist democrats cannot allow him to succeed and they will do anything to stop him. They mean to pound him relentlessly in the run up to 2020. If you believe the last two years were bad, it will be nothing compared to what they have in store. God give him wisdom, strength, and the courage to face what they intend to do.

I am thoroughly disgusted by the weak, soulless, self-righteous Republicans who do no understand or choose to ignore what is happening. Instead of standing in support of the President, they are on the sidelines yelling, look at me! They will be a thorn in his side just because they don’t like his style. Good grief! Wake up! We are one election alway from losing the Republic.

We cannot afford to wait until the election rolls around to act. We have to call, write, and email our representatives, have conversations with our neighbors, post on social media today. Pray for our country, the President and his supporters. Our odds aren’t great and we need divine intervention. The choice could not be clearer, freedom or tyranny.

We savaged the Obama admin for stonewalling and for good reason: they were crooks.

But what other course of action is there for this multi-pronged witch hunt?

Let them wait it out and stomp their widdle feet.

“Attacking the core functions of our country”. What does that mean? Hey pin head, how about naming one specific “core function”? You can’t, the term “core functions” is used because you are not able to name anything.

A post-presidency investigation of Our Lightbringer (Liar Of The Year) focusing on his previous drug use - multiple crimes and misdemeanours - so He Himself can be impeached post-presidency. How about it, GOP? are you going to fight fire with fire or are you going to let the criminal Democrat Socialist Party get away with taking down MAGA?

Whatever Obama was, he was NOT a president. It is easy to see that President Trump is a MAGnetic person (drawn to, and repelled from). In my opinion, DJT did not need the job he was destined for and called to.

The US needed him and he has filled the position. And like effective medicine, most liberal leaning crybabies, hate to see the spoon coming their way.

Memo to Media: Hate destroys the vessel it is kept in.

I blame the feckless republicans who could have stopped this, but, yet again, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. When they controlled the executive and legislative branches, the hatred of Trump by people like Ryan and McConnell let 2 years slip through their fingers. My own slug of a representative, a "republican" member of the Swamp for decades, spent more time lecturing me on how Trump needed mentoring on how government works than on pursuing the real criminal holdovers from Obama. And he did it with a virtue signaling self-righteousness that makes me sick.

I´m voting straight Republican in 2020 because our champions are so courageous and honest in supporting traditional American values, our liberty, and preventing the Democrats from turning our government into a fascist dictatorship. I also fully believe that Republicans in Congress will fully support the President´s agenda to make America great, and to prevent an invasion of aliens to cheapen the value of American labor and its culture, diminishing our sovereignty.

Yeah...you bet.

Rand Paul´s reason for not funding the wall was the last straw. I always respected his staunch convictions, but this goes a bit too far.
Then there´s Murkowski and Tilis. These two RINO puppets are obviously following the dictates of their donors. Both should be primaried and replaced. I´ll give Collins a pass for voting for Kavanough.

Maybe we should be investigating Nadler. He claims to be one of the poorest members of Congress after about 25 years. His salary would have been close to $4 million over that time. Also, I am sure he does not include the assets of his wife, Joyce Miller, who has quite a career in government jobs and now her own company which probably receives government grants.

If the Democrats want to continue investigating Trump, what was the point of the Mueller investigation? It was never really an investigation, it was a fake investigation. The Democratic Congress won´t be running a real investigation now. A real investigation would investigate an actual crime, and Congress is not doing that. Its all politics, and its all for show, except innocent people will likely be put behind bars.

It is time for Congress to be stripped of its authority to run criminal investigations. No more special counsels. We have law enforcement that can do this.

Graham and the Republicans were going "to get to the bottom" of things. So far, the Democrats have issues 81 subpoenas, had a week of hearings, and organized three investigations by 3 separate committees in the House. And the Republicans have done what--nothing. Graham has made no plans, issued no subpoenas, held no hearings. No, the Republicans have been busy bringing bills before the Senate to undermine Trump´s national emergency on the border wall, something the Democrats would never do, something Trump has said he would veto, so is a waste of time. Then, the Senate is busy bringing forth Green Deal legislation, knowing it is also a waste of time. Soon, the Republicans will be going on spring break. McConnell and everyone of those expressionless Republicans that stand behind him at his 5 minute press conferences are despicable uniparty members that have done nothing for this country, and have defied the will of the people.

Being a retired lawyer, I just don’t get this. Any ordinary citizen has more constitutional rights than the president and his family and business orbit. To do this to an ordinary citizen you must go to a sitting judge and show probable cause why you should be issued a search warrant. What am I missing? Well, PDJT should simply ignore these subpoenas like Obama did. Then they can go to court and try to enforce them.

Nadler is bumping up against Executive Privilege at over 100MPH. If Nadler’s take on that is upheld a President would not be able to talk with anyone about any issue without a Congressional Committee run by the opposite political party demanding all White House documentation, and the testimony from individuals employed as White House staff who might have any knowledge of what was discussed during the course of Presidential meetings and negotiations without cause for political purposes, and then leaking that information to the media.

Of course that would only apply to Republican Presidents, as the duplicitous wimpy Republicans would never dare to do that to a leftist or liberal Democrat President and risk being called out as being racists and all the other names that the Democrats fraudulently and rountinely pin on them.

My money is on Trump, by twenty lengths.

The Deep State management ordered the track hosed down every night. The Uniparty´s favorite jockeys, Tapper, Acosta and Maddow plan to box-in the MAGA entry before the first turn.

The best line we´ve got going for us is the Uniparty has yet to realize the thoroughbred from New York is a mudder, a natural to win the rose blanket in the Swamp Sweepstakes.

Nadler has no right to audit anyone´s taxes just to see if they have always been done right. He has no standing. He would have to show that a crime had probably been committed. Even then he has no standing. He is not the IRS. He also has no right to conduct a background investigation of the president to see if he has any skeletons in his closet. That is the job of the Defense Intelligence Agency or the FBI. Even those two cannot do it without a reason.

I can´t be the only one who remembers Trump saying something to the effect that "investigations are a two way street". Basically signaling that if they want to investigate him and his family he will do something like that to them. You just know Nadler harassed some male or female intern on his staff.

I say Trump has something in reserve and is keeping his powder dry --- for now. First he´ll claim Executive Privilege for the docs they want and then he´ll start to slowly release the facts behind the FISA warrants.

Nadler is playing checkers to Trump´s 3D chess game.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) appeared to take credit on Twitter for the Democratic Party´s decline in support for Israel Thursday. She shared two tweets from progressive organization MoveOn and from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez´s (D., N.Y.)chief of staff that praised Democrats for not attending the American Israel Public Affairs Committee´s (AIPAC) annual Policy Conference.

"We will hit the ground running as soon as the deal closes," he told attendees.

The battle over the admissions standards at New York City’s elite public high schools has heated up again. After having failed to change the standards last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio is back at it, this time with some backup from celebrity freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. As usual, their impassioned pleas about the lack of black and Hispanic students completely ignores that it is Asian, not white, students who would bear the brunt of the proposed changes. At issue is the fact that these hyper-competitive high schools consider only a test score in deciding admissions

A federal judge ruled that the Interior Department violated federal law by failing to take into account the climate impact of its oil and gas leasing in the West.
