    Another one of the legions of Dimocraps who are destroying the very basis of the House of Representatives and its constitutional foundation.


    The Constitution of the United States is chock full of guarantees to the right to counsel. The Fifth, Sixth, and Fourteenth Amendments address right to legal representation at the local, state and federal levels.

    One certainly doesn’t have to be a Constitutional lawyer to understand that Congressional hearings certainly have all the trappings of a trial. From the words hearings to subpoenas to contempt of Congress, it’s a good bet that you’d better have a lawyer present if you’re ever called upon to testify (another nifty judicial term).

    From the raising of your right hand, to the final pounding of the gavel, the witness best not tell fibs… lying to Congress is a federal offense.

    With all this useful information now at your fingertips, any person with a lick of common sense would deduct that not only the need, but the absolute right to legal representation.

    But don’t tell Cummings this!

    In keeping with longstanding Department of Justice policy, neither Mr. Gore nor anyone else in the Department will be forced to testify in their capacity as a DOJ official on DOJ matters without DOJ counsel,” said Kerri Kupec, a department spokesperson.


    So how did Cumming respond?


    This is a massive, unprecedented, and growing pattern of obstruction,” he said. “Yesterday, President Trump declared to the entire country that he would obstruct Congress and order all White House officials to defy lawful subpoenas from Congress. Today, the Trump Administration went even further by expanding this policy to employees at federal agencies—even when the subpoenas are bipartisan and supported by Republican Members of Congress.”

    The infamous N word was invented for assholes like him. It doesn't apply to all blacks, just blacks like that asshole. These assholes abuse and are parasites on their own race and are the worst kind of racist of all.

    I guess if they can’t have an attorney, they won’t be under oath?
    Sounds reasonable.
