Not showing up for a planned public whipping would definitely enrage Nadler and be fun to watch.


Thursday, February 7, 2019

It may come to that... Congressman JERROLD NADLER is in over his head.



ANALYSIS — The Trump administration on Thursday moved its first chess piece in what is expected to be a contentious match between the White House and House Democrats as the latter seek documents and testimony for their oversight investigations of the president and his Cabinet.

In a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Thursday, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said he would bail on his scheduled hearing on Friday unless Nadler assured him he would not file a subpoena to compel Whitaker to disclose his conversations with the president on hot-button topics or force Whitaker to invoke “executive privilege.”

In another letter to the committee sent later in the day, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd set a 6 p.m. Thursday deadline for Nadler to notify the Justice Department whether or not he would file that subpoena, which the committee authorized as a pre-emptive measure on a party-line vote earlier in the day.

As long as Whitaker is prepared to answer questions, “then I assure you that there will be no need for the Committee to issue a subpoena” on Friday, Nadler wrote in response.

“To the extent that you believe you are unable to fully respond to any specific question, we are prepared to handle your concerns on a case-by-case basis, both during and after tomorrow’s hearing,” the New York Democrat wrote.

It's still not clear if Matthew Whitaker will show up tomorrow before Nadler's House Oversight Committee. The Congressman was a jerk for threatening to subpoena Whitaker, after Whitaker had agreed to the February 8th date, last month.

I really do admire guys who can keep their composure when dealing with morons. I would be shouting right back at them.

Some of those Congress people need to have investigations opened on them. You can tell by the questions and the tone in their voice.

That would be a good way for Matthew Whitaker to finish out his last week.
