As Dems said today, this is massive obstruction of justice...

White House orders officials to defy Congressional subpoenas


The White House is openly defying Elijah Cummings and the Oversight Committee urging officials to ignore congressional subpoenas.

This was predictable, since there's nothing the House can do about it, I don't think.

Not sure what the remedy is when SCOTUS issues a judicial ruling in this sort of case. US Marshall raid and arrests maybe? I think it was FBI raid and arrests under Watergate.

Yeah, I dunno. I know the ordinary federal courts have the U.S. Marshals as their physical enforcement arm. That's their primary job. But I don't know if the Supreme Court has a physical enforcement arm. I suppose I could look it up. Lol. The answer must appear somewhere in the Marshal's agency charter.

Whether you are a Hillary fan or not, this is a really good read from someone who has been through it all from Watergate as a young attorney to Putin interference through Trump. She has always put country and people before party.

Longtime state lawmaker quits the GOP, joins Democrats


When Trump boasted last week that “many people” are “quickly” switching parties “right now,” perhaps he was confused about the partisan direction?

I suspect Congress will take this to SCOTUS to compel cooperation as per the Constitution.

Facing tough questions, White House rejects congressional oversight


We've seen examples of tensions between the branches, but Trump is pushing the envelope, effectively denying the legitimacy of congressional oversight authority

And I am sure others are hiding their returns as well...

In the White House, Trump's not the only one hiding his tax returns


Donald Trump hides his tax returns, which leads Mike Pence to believe he has to hide his tax returns, too.

It's not enough to be outraged. Any American calling themselves Republicans are complicit in the corrupt Trump administration. Become a Democrat to shift the party power in the Senate to the Democrats for the good of the country. Always put country and its people before party to earn my respect.

If Romney is 'sickened' by Mueller's revelations, what will he do?


The seven words that stood out for me in Romney's statement were these: "The business of government can move on." What if it can't?

This is a detailed fact check with links to the redacted report that shows us just how badly Barr lied to Congress on behalf of Trump. IMO it's enough evidence to impeach Barr and others for perjury (the same charge Bill Clinton was impeached for by a majority Republican Congress). Impeachment is not limited to Presidents.

For those wanting real details of the Mueller Report so far, I've posted quite a bit of analysis from multiple experts in the Progressive Refuge community forum.

I hear you two there...I think this whole "I'm F*cked!" thing says it all...I never would have thought we would be here again

I stress that it's about the environment and economy. Things look bleak for America, if we don't win 2020.
