Absurd: Obama-Appointed Judge Forces Don McGahn To Do This

(Tea Party PAC) – On Monday, Obama-appointed US District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled that Don McGahn (pictured above), former White House counsel must testify before Congress about his time in the Trump administration.

Justice Department lawyers argued that Don McGahn had “absolute immunity” from testifying as he was a member of the president’s inner circle and that Trump must have the ability to seek advice from his closest advisors and legal counsel.

It is absolutely absurd that they’d even suggest testimony from one of the president’s former lawyers!

Lawyers at the DOJ also argued that federal courts have absolutely no business getting involved in a dispute between the executive branch and the legislative branch.

Attorney General Bill Barr recently blasted the courts for getting involved in the many disputes between Congress and the Trump administration.

“The framers did not envision that the Courts would play the role of arbiter of turf disputes between the political branches,” Barr said at a highly controversial, but bold, speech at a Federalist Society conference. “The long experience of our country is that the political branches can work out their constitutional differences without resort to the courts.”

Yet again, here is an unprecedented ruling from another Obama judge butting into what should be a strictly political battle in Congress.

Politico reported:

Don McGahn must testify to Congress about his time as the White House’s top lawyer, a federal judge ruled Monday — a decision that will put pressure on other reluctant Trump administration witnesses to testify about President Donald Trump’s actions.

Jackson, an appointee of President Barack Obama, rejected both arguments [from the DOJ].

“DOJ promotes a conception of separation-of-powers principles that gets these constitutional commands exactly backwards,” Jackson wrote in her 120-page opinion. “In reality, it is a core tenet of this Nation’s founding that the powers of a monarch must be split between the branches of the government to prevent tyranny.”

In 2017, McGahn was interviewed five times by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team and answered questions for a total of 30 hours, and now they want him back for more!

The Gateway Pundit adds:

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler previously subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to publicly testify.

Nadler said that Don McGahn is a “critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.”

According to Mueller’s report, President Trump asked Don McGahn to supposedly lie about reports that he ordered him to fire Mueller. Mueller was never even fired and Trump insists he never said anything like that to McGahn, but Nadler and the Dems are pursuing him anyway.

“The Special Counsel’s report, even in redacted form, outlines substantial evidence that President Trump engaged in obstruction and other abuses,” Nadler said. “It now falls to Congress to determine for itself the full scope of the misconduct and to decide what steps to take in the exercise of our duties of oversight, legislation and constitutional accountability.”

The Trump admin will move to immediately appeal judge Jackson’s ruling, which is why Adam Schiff is scrambling to draft an impeachment report as quickly as possible — he knows time is not on his side and the Trump admin will do everything possible to delay impeachment.

Judge Jackson’s ruling will certainly galvanize impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff who said his Committee and the Judiciary Committee may call in more witnesses to provide testimony.

“Even as we draft our report, we are open to the possibility that further evidence will come to light, whether in the form of witnesses who provide testimony or documents that become available,” Schiff wrote in a letter to colleagues Monday.

  1. Every demorats that participates in this treasonous abuse of a lawfully elected President needs to be arrested, tried and convicted of treason! Conviction of treason is death by firing squad! I volunteer to be Captain or rifleman!!!

  2. I THINK WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD SPEAK UP WITH WHAT WE KNOW IS COMING FAST,” THE NEXT CIVIL WAR”!!!!!! THESE ASS WIPING CRYING BABIES JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE NO F***ING GOOD DEMORATS TRYING TO TAKE OUT THE MAN THAT WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE VOTED IN TO OFFICE TO MAINLY CLEAN OUT ALL THE TRASH!!!!! PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP NEEDS TO UNLEASH THE MILITARY ON THESE TREASONOUS BASTARDS AND ROUND THEM UP AND STRIP THEM OF THEIR TITLES AND LOCK THEM ALL UP AND THEN GO AFTER ALL THE OTHER CROOKED SCUMBAGS LIKE SOROS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. If I were Don McGahn, I believe I would be inclined to tell both the Obama-appointed judge and Jerrald “No Nads” Nadler to want in one hand, defecate in the other, and see which hand gets full faster!

  4. Oh my god! An Obama appointee. I guess that means EVERY ruling by this
    “so called Judge” is corrupt and tainted no matter what the facts show.
    The president is NOT a king. We have 3 EQUAL branches of government.
    And like ALL presidents before him, he has to respond to congress and courts. People, this is grade school stuff.

    • Actually any time according to this Judge. All decisions on policy, process, and action are subject to review and approval by the Judge. Who in his or her “infinite” God given wisdom can rule on any topic with no limit. This is to stop the abuse of the “monarchy” we are told. And, only the Schiff committee is allowed to have “secret” hearings with no cross examination and have people put in jail for contempt of congress. Yes, this Judge believes the Democrats in congress are free to act as a star chamber. Selecting witnesses. Coercing testimony. Denying exculpatory information, Denying cross examination from charges by “secret” complaints from anybody they choose to accept. The point of this is that the “activist” judiciary who believe in these “powers” are not applying to law evenly. They pick side and use the law like a hammer to support the particular view they have. Basic legal concepts like the ability to confront the accuser, cross examine the accuser about the charges, and to have access to all the evidence are only for “real criminals” not non-criminals like the President.

      That said, Impeachment is a political process not a legal process. In fact, the Democrats in congress CAN do anything they want with what ever rules they want. They can impeach anybody for anything, because it is not a legal process. So why is the judge involved at all? Just as the DOJ proposed this is not something for the judicial branch to be involved in. The trial is not in a court, but in the Senate and if the POTUS is removed from office by the Senate that is the only process involved. By siding with the Democrats the judge has violated his oath of office to protect and defend the law and the constitution. He’s just another “We are above the law” bull-shit Democrat as far as I can see.

    • Treason, obstructing justice, violating the emoluments clause, campaign Finance violations Etc including what we do not yet know that has been included illegally in the top secret vault.

  5. Lawyers at DOJ and AG Barr are absolutely correct! I am flabbergasted that Pelosi, Schiff Nadler & other democrats would shred the Constitution and the institution of the presidency and executive branch of government just for power, money, politics & their own pitiful re-election attempts. They are essentially communist-colluding traitors and should all be cast out of office and some prosecuted along with those who aided and abetted a coup-d’etat!

  6. I suppose when the SCOTUS refuses to take the case after the 9 day stay for Trump’s lawyer to present his reasoning to the court. The SCOTUS will be an Obama appointed court. Now in every other case that was before the court for the same thing they either refused to hear it or sided with the Congress, who is an equal branch of Government.

    • Soon everyone will be portrayed as the Deep State even members of Trumps family if they are indicted separately.
