Trump: ‘No reason’ to honor Dems’ ‘very partisan’ subpoenas, as McGahn testimony fight looms

Nadler subpoenas former White House counsel Don McGahnVideo
Nadler subpoenas former White House counsel Don McGahn
Former White House counsel Don McGahn has been subpoenaed to testify publicly following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. Former U.S. assistant attorney and Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy reacts.

The White House will fight House Democrats’ subpoena of testimony and documents from ex-White House counsel Don McGahn, Fox News is told — and almost immediately, House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, characterized the move as “one more act of obstruction” by the Trump administration.

The brewing fight over the McGahn subpoena was poised to set up a series of other contentious legal showdowns as Democrats seek to publicly question more current and former Trump aides who featured prominently in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.

Fox News is also told the White House intends to vigorously oppose subpoenas that might run up against executive privilege, a power sanctioned by the Supreme Court that allows the president and members of the executive branch to shield certain internal communications from disclosure, absent a compelling overriding justification.

In an interview with The Washington Post published Tuesday evening, Trump insisted that no “final, final decision” had been made on whether to assert executive privilege to block aides from testifying, but emphasized that he had already allowed his associates to speak at length with Mueller’s team.

“There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it’s very partisan — obviously very partisan,” Trump told The Post. “I don’t want people testifying to a party, because that is what they’re doing if they do this.”

“There is no reason to go any further.”

— President Trump
Democrats have suggested Trump effectively waived any assertions of executive privilege by permitting McGahn to talk to investigators.

Trump added: “I allowed my lawyers and all the people to go and testify to Mueller — and you know how I feel about that whole group of people that did the Mueller report. I was so transparent; they testified for so many hours. They have all of that information that’s been given … I could have taken the absolute opposite route.”

Neither the “presidential communications privilege,” which protects discussions by the president and senior aides, and the “deliberative process privilege,” which protects even lower-level talks concerning policy discussions, were invoked by the White House to redact any sections of Mueller’s report.

IN PRIVATE CONFERENCE CALL MONDAY, DEMS BACK OFF IMPEACHMENT PLANS — EVEN MAXINE WATERS PUMPS THE BRAKES

But as Democrats ramp up their investigations following the report’s release, Trump and his team have begun pushing back in a concerted fashion on a campaign of probes they say are nakedly partisan.

The White House scored an early victory in that effort on Tuesday, after House Democrats agreed to postpone a subpoena deadline for Trump’s financial records, following Trump’s lawsuit challenging the subpoena.

Nadler on Monday subpoenaed McGahn to testify publicly next month. The top Democrat described McGahn, who stepped down as White House counsel in October 2018, as “a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel’s report.”

In a statement Tuesday evening responding to reports that the White House would fight back, Nader called the subpoena “valid” and said he wouldn’t back down.

“We have asked him to supply documents to the Committee by May 7 and to testify here on May 21,” Nadler said. “Our request covers the subjects described by Mr. McGahn to the Special Counsel, and described by Special Counsel Mueller to the American public in his report. As such, the moment for the White House to assert some privilege to prevent this testimony from being heard has long since passed.”

U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., chair of the House Judiciary Committee, speaks Thursday following the release of a redacted version of the Mueller report.

Nadler added: “I suspect that President Trump and his attorneys know this to be true as a matter of law—and that this evening’s reports, if accurate, represent one more act of obstruction by an Administration desperate to prevent the public from talking about the President’s behavior. The Committee’s subpoena stands. I look forward to Mr. McGahn’s testimony.”

EX-TRUMP ATTORNEY DOWD DISPUTES MUELLER REPORT, SAYS TRUMP NEVER ORDERED MCGAHN TO FIRE MUELLER

On “Fox News Sunday,” host Chris Wallace pressed Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on a section of the Mueller report outlining how Trump allegedly told McGahn to inform the acting attorney general that Mueller should be removed in June 2017 — a demand that McGahn ignored. Trump has strongly suggested that claim was ‘bulls—.'”

“If he had fired him, there wouldn’t have been an obstruction,” Giuliani began. “So, as long as he was replaced by somebody, which he would have been, and there were good reasons- arguable reasons.”

Giuliani insisted that accounts of McGahn’s story have changed multiple times and that Trump was merely calling for Mueller’s supposed conflicts of interests to be “considered.”

Mueller’s report contained purported conversations between Trump and McGahn that have raised eyebrows on Capitol Hill.

“Why do you take notes? Lawyers don’t take notes. I never had a lawyer who took notes,” Trump said, according to Mueller’s report. The special counsel said McGahn responded that he keeps notes “because he is a ‘real lawyer’ and explained that notes create a record and are not a bad thing.”

These notes appear to have angered Trump, but also allowed Mueller to conclude that McGahn was a credible witness “with no motive to lie or exaggerate given the position he held in the White House.”

Last week, Trump unleashed a series of broadsides concerning claims that his associates had given Mueller damaging information.

“Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue,” Trump tweeted. “Watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes,’ when the notes never existed until needed.”

John Dowd, who served as a member of President Trump’s legal team from June 2017 until March 2018, backed up Trump on “Fox & Friends” Monday.

Asked when Trump said to fire Mueller, Dowd said: “He never did. I was there at the same time that the report says McGahn mentioned this, and I was assigned to deal with Mueller and briefed the president every day. … At no time did the president ever say, ‘you know, John, I’m going to get rid of him.’ It was the opposite.”

Dowd continued: “Here’s the message the president had for Bob Mueller, he told me to carry — number one, you tell him I respect what he is doing; number two, you tell him he has my full cooperation; number three, get it done as quickly as possible; and number four, whatever else you need, let me know. That was always the message and that is exactly what we did.”

Facebook’s new chief lawyer helped write the Patriot Act

‘Jennifer is a seasoned leader whose global perspective and experience will help us fulfill our mission,’ says Sheryl Sandberg

Jennifer Newstead, a Trump appointee who served in the Justice Department under President Bush, will soon be taking over as general counsel of Facebook, the company announced in a press release on Monday afternoon. Newstead will take over from Colin Stretch, who announced plans to retire last year.

“Jennifer is a seasoned leader whose global perspective and experience will help us fulfill our mission,” Sheryl Sandberg said in a statement included with the release.

But many are already troubled by Newstead’s history lobbying and legislating for more powerful electronic surveillance. As The Hill points out, a 2002 Justice Department press release describes her as “helping craft” the legislation. Notorious Bush administration lawyer John Yoo described her as the “day-to-day manager of the Patriot Act in Congress” in his 2006 book.

Passed in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, the Patriot Act greatly expanded the scope of the government’s surveillance powers, enabling new techniques like roving wiretaps and so-called “sneak-and-peek” warrants. Section 215 of the Patriot Act was used to justify the bulk collection of telephone records from US carriers, although both the ruling and the legal interpretation that justified it remained secret until the Snowden leaks.

Most relevant for Facebook, the Patriot Act also initiated the practice of so-called “national security letters,” in which intelligence agencies informally request specific data without the authorization of a court or judge, citing threats to national security.

Facebook is still actively dealing with these data demands, which have only escalated since NSA collection activities became public. Facebook received more than 32,000 requests for data from US law enforcement in the second half of 2018, and content from more than 20,000 accounts was requested by the FISA court over the same period. Little is known about the details of those requests, which are often subject to strict gag orders.

As general counsel, Newstead will be in a unique position to either block or enable those requests — and her professional history suggests she may be more sympathetic to the government’s security mandate than users’ desire for privacy.

Newstead will work closely with Joel Kaplan, Facebook’s head of global policy. A prominent conservative, Kaplan drew ire from many Facebook employees last year when he appeared as a guest at the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This Man Made Religion Is Not Peaceful.

Robert Massimi.
How many bombings do we need to endure before we start to wake up and take action against these fanatics? Islam is not a peaceful religion, it was started by a bi polar individual named Mohammed in 600 ad. Hell bent on destruction these people have ruined all the Christian artifacts in Iraq and other places in the we orld.
We need to start irradicating these people off the face of the earth. I am personally sick of these radicals. Unyielding and uncooperative, they add no value to America nor Western Europe. They have many kids as nd live off of welfare an d.c. bring nothing to the table whats do ever except destruction wherever they go.
Imans are violent people and they preach violance. Idiots like Barack Obama talked about the Christian crusades but he always defended Islam. I believe Obama was a muslim and he helped support their cause of destruction and hatred.
We need to start hurting these people untill they start behaving like human beings. The world needs to take action against these scum bags. To blow up Churches and kill Christians is unacceptable and we need to take a strong stand snd start taking drastic action against Islam.
What was once a middle east problem, is now a world wide problem. Fanatics is what they are, the whole lot of them. I want to see what the communists at the U.N. are going to do about this. The U.N. who has support from both George Soros to Mark Kevin is a communist body of government and will do nothing to help Christians.
From Kofe Annan to Saudi Arabia, we get no support from the UN. The leaders elected at the UN are communist and show no real leadership.

TEXT
COLOMBO, Sri Lanka—Sri Lankan officials believe an Islamist militant group was behind the Easter morning attacks on churches and luxury hotels that killed at least 290 people and wounded another 500, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told reporters.

Officials had said previously that another country had warned that the group, known as National Thowheed Jamath, was planning attacks in Sri Lanka, but the warnings weren’t specific enough to effectively act on and didn’t include hotels or tourist sites as potential targets.

Mr. Senaratne said there is no specific evidence connecting the group to the bombings, but that authorities see it as the most likely organizer. He said all the bombers were Sri Lankan citizens.

Police said yet another explosive device was discovered Monday in a parcel inside a vehicle parked in Colombo near St. Anthony’s Shrine, which was attacked on Sunday. The bomb was disposed of with a controlled explosion, they said, and there were no injuries.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Authorities took 24 people into custody in connection with the bombings, making arrests in several locations in and near the capital, Colombo, where the bombings were focused. Police said they discovered 87 detonators, apparently abandoned, at a private bus stand in the capital. The government has ordered round-the-clock security at all churches.

There were at least eight explosions, most blamed on suicide bombers. Six of the attacks were coordinated and were carried out by seven suicide bombers, according to a preliminary examination of scattered body parts by the country’s official experts. Two men appear to have blown themselves up at the Shangri-La Hotel in Colombo, said Ariyananda Welianga, a government investigator who studied the bodies, while single bombers attacked two other high-profile hotels and three churches.

The suspected bombers’ heads and limbs were severed from their torsos in a way consistent with suicide attacks, Mr. Welianga said. His experience with such cases goes back to Sri Lanka’s civil war, during which a Tamil insurgent group carried out suicide bombings, he said. The civil war ended in 2009.

The analysis of material recovered from the explosion sites also showed that metal balls had been attached to the bombs to inflict shrapnel injuries in addition to blast injuries, Mr. Welianga said.

Authorities on Monday imposed a new curfew on the country for the evening and continued to block social-media services such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Snapchat. Government officials have argued that social media encourages the spread of misinformation.

After President Maithripala Sirisena held a meeting of the government’s security counsel, his office announced that a state of emergency would go into effect at midnight. That will allow the military to make arrests and detain people for extended periods without charging them in court.

Sri Lanka, an island nation of 21 million people dominated by a Sinhalese-speaking Buddhist majority, was torn for decades by a brutal civil war between the government and a Tamil-speaking militant group, known as the Tamil Tigers, which was among the first to employ suicide bombings. The country also has a number of religious minorities, including Muslims, who make up about 10% of the population, and Christians, about 7%.

William locantro did a little piece of work over the weekend. Money owed to absolute Electrical Contractors went unpaid until Billy “the ape ” showed up ty o collect. Under the shadows of la cosa nostra, the ape took care of some business. Fred Mossimo, cousin to joey the boss Mossimo, was said to have master minded the piece of work carried out.
This work was planned out at Pasquales resturant on Arthur ave in the bronx. Gas pipe cassio’s nephew was said to be at the meeting and so was skinny Joe.
In the shadows, absolute electric keeps a low profike whenever possible. A new front, Boca Raton is where the ape spends a lot of time these days. Trying to step down from the life, William locantro still calls the shots as capo regime fir the Bonanno family. Locantro has done work for the Luchese and Gambino’s, however. Growing up in Ozone park next to the gotti’s, the ape locantro was best friends with john gotti jr.they built a long hardened friendship. That friendship was cemented when bill locantro was asked to do his first piece of work at 17. In a shootout, locantro lost s testicle when a bullet hit his groin. He was dubed billy one nut locantro after that, a name that he hated. Known as the ape because his facial features look like a gorilla, the ape has been at first a loyal soldier, then getting his button at 31, a made member in la cosa nostra. Later promoted to capo regime, under the gise of absolute Electrical Contractors, or absolute electric, locantro is in construction and cement. He is no stranger to loan sharking and extortion.
Bill locantro is used to beating people. Rutigliano and Randazzo know all too well sbout william locantro and his double crossings. The two aforementioned made a deal with locantro and absolute electric and got beat.
In south Hampton long island, locantro started a home building business. Many clients found out yhd hard way when locantro delivered a late and inferior product to the h as Hamptons crowd. Often threatened, the new homeowners were scared for there lives.

Theater Review. Instructions for American Serviceman in Britain.

by ROBERT MASSIMI an hour ago in REVIEW
A Really Fun Play

Robert Massimi.

In what is a good, good natured play, Brits on Broadway at 59 East 59th Street in association with Fol Espoir (foolish hope), Jermyn Street Theater and The Real Mac Guffins, have a real winner in Instructions for American Serviceman in Britain.

Fol Espoir is dedicated to creating works that connect with the audience, and connect it does. Many audience members are asked to stand and give name and rank. At other times the audience is throwing paper towels at the actors. What’s a clever show without a little dancing at their seats during the performance.

Co-written by all three actors, as well as the Director, the show is non stop laughs. The shows premise is that the Yanks have landed in England during world war two and there is quite a bit of tension between the servicemen and the Brits. Drinking and running over the rose bushes are frowned upon across the pond so is boasting and being loud.

It seems that the two countries need to work together to defuse Nazi propaganda attempts to split the allies apart. We see this comical attempt at the beginning of act two in which the Germans plan to plant spies in England to laude their propaganda and infiltrate the enemy. A cross between Hogans Heroes and Family Fued, this scene was raucous.

The three actors play multiple roles and all three do a brilliant job of that. John Walton’s direction kept this comedy moving at a fast pace all evening. Reminiscent of the Ridiculous Theater Company, this spoof bordered on the absurd.

Dan March as Colonel Atwood, the hillbilly from Iowa, who only knew his way, was a love-able tough guy. From Marmite to describing the map of England, he kept us in stitches the entire evening.

James Millard as Lieutenant Schultz was the peace maker and go between. Never one to rock the boat, he too was clever in his multiple roles, from lieutenant, to Major Gibbons mother, he was excellent to watch.

The third sensational actor was Matt Sheahan. The Englishman who took abuse all evening. Very British and steadfast to English history, he became enraged when the classless Americans insulted his nation. His hobby of coin collecting and his deep passion for it drove the audience into a frenzy when he explained to us the English currency.
760he sets were pithy and the costumes were all well done. From the air force uniforms to the knickers, Martin Thomas was on the money with both endeavors. What made this play really great were the outlandish uniform of Major Gibbons, the German uniforms, replete with puppets and the women’s costumes.

Instructions is the kind of show that will keep you laughing long after you’ve seen it. There was so much to laugh at during the two hours and 20 minutes and it is the reason that we need more comedy like this in New York. Much like The Play That Goes Wrong, it keeps you entertained. It’s very obvious that all three actors loved doing this show, it was a party on the stage at theater B on 59 East 59th Street theaters.
