DOJ Gives McGahn Immunity From Nadler Subpoena

Update: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) is not taking McGahn’s immunity ruling sitting down, saying in a Monday statement “The Mueller Report documents a shocking pattern of obstruction of justice. The President acted again and again – perhaps criminally – to protect himself from federal law enforcement.”

“The Committee will convene as planned tomorrow morning, and Mr. McGahn is expected to appear as legally required,” concludes the statement.

The Department of Justice has given former White House Counsel Don McGahn immunity from having to testify in front of Congress amid allegations that President Trump instructed McGahn to shut down the Mueller probe. 

Earlier this month, McGahn refused to turn over requested documents after he was instructed by the White House not to comply with a subpoena issued by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) requesting documents and testimony. Nadler threatened to hold McGahn in contempt of Congress.

In a letter to Nadler, White House lawyer Pat Cipollone said that he had been advised by the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel that “Mr. McGahn is absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony with respect to matters occurring during his service as a senior adviser to the President,” according to ABC News‘s Catherine Faulders.

Nadler’s committee kicked off a wide-ranging investigation into President Trump for allegations of obstruction of justice and abuses of power, reports Politico. McGahn is a central figure in the investigation, after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report claimed that Trump directed McGahn to have the Mueller probe shut down.

    1. WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN IS THE NEXT TIME THEY HAVE A HEARING OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. THE MILITARY SHOULD STORM IN AND HANDCUFF EVERY ONE OF THOSE DEMORAT COCKROACHES AND CART THEM RIGHT TO GITMO TO AWAIT THEIR HANGING IN TWO DAYS NO COURT HEARINGS WE’VE HAD ENOUGH. I THINK IF THIS SHIT GOES MUCH FURTHER WE THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO STEP IN AND PUT AN END TO THE PROBLEM.

  1. This NONSENSE has to stop so that Politicians can start doing the jobs they were elected to do. They need to focus on strengthening the border as a priority, improving conditions for Vets and Seniors, solving the homeless issue, etc. and they need to understand that their obsession with undermining President Trump is NOT serving the people who elected them. They remind me of spoiled children that think they should get a trophy even if they never play the game. If they are going to continue pursuing their current path, the they need to return their salaries to the Treasury as they are no earning them in any way.

  2. In the war of the ungodly evil fighting righteousness, it is sweat to see hate mongers being stifled with a loving note of constitutional facts.

  3. I am getting sick & tired of the dumbocraps trying to make something up from nothing. They have the Mueller report & they still aren’t satisfied that their own hand picked investigators cant find anything. Hey morons time to let go even Mueller who was given the freedom to appear or not choose to not come before you to probably be insulted that you only spent 30+ million on a witch hunt. How does it feel when he told you that your running a kangaroo court & he is not going to show up for what is now a circus. Even a moron knows that the horse is dead so stop beating it. My opinion is keep doing what your doing you are showing all Americans just how stupid your party is. Oh yeah good luck on the 2020 elections something tells me you are really going to have to commit massive voter fraud to win a race for dog catchers.

    1. I DON’T THINK HALF OF THEM WILL MAKE IT THAT FAR THEY ARE HIDING TOO MUCH AND IT’S ABOUT TO BE PUBLICIZED. I’M SURE A LOT OF THEM WILL GO AND HIDE AND COMMIT KILLERYCIDE EH SUICIDE. YOU KNOW LIKE I THINK MR.WEINER DID, IT’S SOMETHING HOW HE JUST DISAPPEARED
