Because they can't. There must be a legitimate reason. That's why the corrupt Mueller probe is now being investigated. Trump was framed. The Democrat/socialists in Congress are searching for a crime, not investigating one.

It is the job of congress to oversee and challenge executive overreach, how can they do it if the president has the authority to prevent them from seeing documents they want or talking to people involved whether they work for the administration or not?

Holder's feet were held to the fire by congress, what makes Barr so special that he can't be held accountable?

The white house and DOJ are claiming executive immunity that flat does not exist, or there would be no possible way to hold a president accountable.

The panel, which spent more than $7.8 million over two and a half years, disbanded at the end of the 114th Congress, before a new Congress begins in January.

What constitution have you been reading?????? Not the US Constitution. The legislative branch has wide, but not unlimited scope for investigations. Both the Benghazi and Fast and Furious were legitimate subjects for Congress to investigate. Congress can employ an investigation only in aid of the legislative function. Its outermost boundaries are marked, then, by the outermost boundaries of the power to legislate. They both involved congressional appropriations. And Benghazi involved actions which were suppose to get congressional approval before initiation. The Supreme Court is clear on the limitations, “that neither house of Congress possesses a ‘general power of making inquiry into the private affairs of the citizen’; that the power actually possessed is limited to inquiries relating to matters of which the particular house ‘has jurisdiction’ and in respect of which it rightfully may take other action; that if the inquiry relates to ‘a matter wherein relief or redress could be had only by a judicial proceeding’ it is not within the range of this power, but must be left to the courts, conformably to the constitutional separation of governmental powers; and that for the purpose of determining the essential character of the inquiry recourse must be had to the resolution or order under which it is made.”

They are not making anything up, the Mueller report outlined the role McGahn played when he documented Trump's attempts to get him to fire Mueller, then his being told to lie and to change the formal records.

Putting him on the stand is about letting the american public and the GOP hear in his own words what happened.


If Trump attempted to fire Mueller, he would have been fired. The President has the authority to fire ANY appointee within the executive branch who didn't need to go through congressional approval! That includes Mueller. He didn't need McGhan or anyone else to do so!!!!

Thanks for both this and your previous post. Congress does not have unlimited power to harass a president because they don't like the outcome of the election. President Trump did not lose his civil rights once he was elected. I believe the Democrat/socialists in Congress knew as long as Mueller knew, (at least a year and a half, and most likely from the very beginning,) there was no Russian/Trump election collusion, coordination or conspiracy, and have been looking for something, anything to bludgeon President Trump with. And if they can't find anything they will try to manufacture it, after all the bogus, collusion scam worked for over 2 years, and when Mueller delayed informing the American people he no doubt influenced the mid-term elections in favor of the Democrat/socialist Party. Then Mr. Integrity, who wasted millions of tax-payer dollars made sure to gift his cabal with enough smears and innuendo to hopefully keep the attempt at the worst corruption and abuse of power, a literal political coup in American history up and running for 2020. Notice how the Democrat/socialist Party is convinced that they can't win elections without cheating. No doubt this method of winning elections has been in place for decades, and since the Democrat/socialists have most of the media in their pocket, they have felt secure in cheating. I sincerely hope AG Barr FULLY exposes this seditious behavior. Most Americans don't want that "fundamental transformation" into a banana republic, police state...complete with police state tactics like using the weight and might of our intelligence and law enforcement agencies to spy on, entrap, bankrupt and go so far as to jail American citizens for political reasons. It is scary just how close we came to having our wonderful liberties cut right out from underneath us. And it is still ongoing. These traitorous political thugs haven't stopped yet and won't until they ARE fully exposed.

Hey Woodie, what is going on and is PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE goes back to the Truman days and the McCarthy agenda. Basically idiots upon idiots compounding an idiotic agenda. This also has roots in the Watergate investigation of Nixon. Its all historical fact, which libtards like you can't accept. This DemonCratic agenda has stopped the nation, reigned in all ability by the DimmoCrapps to get anything done for the country, and as Trump has just shown, basically stopped all governmental efforts to produce for its citizens. I know this goes over your head, but that's ok. The DimmoCrapp party is sinking its own boat, and there are no life preservers to grab when it goes under.

This dog and pony show may well end the DimmoCrapp party. How 'bout them apples..??

The only thing idiotic is listening to you. What part of the Mueller report did you whining snowflakes not get?

It's way more complicated than you parrots of left wing talking points know. By the way, I have a paralegal certification I've forgot more Law than you know.

I really try to limit the amount of time I spend talking to ignorant people, such as you. So consider the article and do some actual research.
