House Judiciary Committee Subpoenas Another Former White House Staffer as Part of Trump ‘Impeachment Inquiry’
Rep. Jerrold Nadler
It has been nearly three years since Donald Trump won the presidential election and the Democrats have not accepted his victory.
The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Jerrold Nadler of New York issued a subpoena for testimony from former White House staffer Rob Porter as part of it’s Trump ‘impeachment inquiry.’
Recall, Rob Porter resigned from his position as White House staff secretary last year amid allegations of domestic abuse — Porter has denied these accusations.
Rob Porter was mentioned many times in Mueller’s garbage report and is alleged to have been involved with Trump’s plans to fire Mueller — Democrats are hanging their hats on the notion that Trump instructed his former White House counsel to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller then cover it up with document denying Trump ever made the order.
Trump never even fired Mueller so once again the Democrats are grasping at straws with their ‘obstruction of justice’ claims.
“Any other American would have been prosecuted based on the evidence Special Counsel Mueller uncovered in his report,” Nadler said. “Rob Porter was prominently featured in the Special Counsel’s description of President Trump’s efforts to obstruct justice by directing then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire the Special Counsel, and then ordering him to lie about it.”
Jerry Nadler said that Rob Porter’s testimony will help the “committee determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment against the President .”
“No one is above the law,” Nadler added.
President Trump’s White House will likely block the subpoena for Rob Porter’s testimony like it has with other White House aides caught up in the Democrats’ witch hunt.
Porter was a part of Trump’s inner orbit, therefore the White House can claim “absolute immunity” over his direct communications with the president.
The subpoena issued by the House Judiciary Committee requests Mr. Porter appear before the panel for testimony on September 17.
