The demand for his testimony should help shed further light on the President’s attacks on the rule of law, and his attempts to cover up those
actions by lying to the American people and requesting others do the same
The official statement continues
“The Special Counsel and his team made clear that based on their investigation,
they were unable to ‘reach [the] judgment . . . .that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice.’'
Just a gentle reminder :
Trump is no-where near being in the
clear, not since Mueller states that The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President’s corrupt exercise of the powers
of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law
There’s a scene in the Mueller report from a Saturday in June 2017.
Trump is at Camp David and McGahn is at home in Virginia.
The lawyer gets two calls from the president,
which he later described to Mueller, whose report reads:
'You gotta do this” McGahn recalls the president saying.
“‘You gotta call Rod.’”
But McGahn did not call Rod.
McGahn considered the president’s request to be an inflection point and he wanted to hit the brakes.
Afterwards, McGahn went to hand in his resignation to Preibus
"The president wants me to do some crazy stuff"
being a bit, y'know, not particularly legal ...
As long as it's not a democrat
doing 'Crazy stuff", that's OK ...
Naturally enough, Trump
the current, sordid, resident of the White House
is busy distancing himself from his best buddies :
