Democratic leadership is furious after President Trump’s guides to build military means, the border wall. Former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and the ‘Outnumbered’ panel to respond.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler on Wednesday said his Committee had served a subpoena on the Department of Homeland Security learn more about President Trump the alleged promise of a pardon to officials involved in the construction of the border wall.
“The dangling of the pardons by the President to encourage representatives of the government, in violation of Federal law would be another one of the President of the disregard of the rule of law,” Nadler reported, for example, D-NY, said in a statement.
Last week, The Washington Post reported that the President has promised, aide-de-camp, he will forgive you, if you need to break the law in order to fast-track border wall construction, before the day of the election up to 2020.
The President emphatically denied the reports.
TRUMP SLAMS WASHINGTON POST’S REPORT ON PARDONS
“A totally Fake story in the Amazon Washington Post (lobbyist), stating that to build, if my helper broke the law, the wall (which goes quickly), I’d tweeted an apology,” Trump. “This was a decrease from the Washington Post just to disparage – FAKE NEWS!”
Despite Trump’s denial, Nadler said, he wanted more; the subpoena requires the production of documents relating to the meetings between the President and officials of the DHS, where pardons were discussed, according to reports.
The house Committee said that the subpoena “is a further step in the … study on obstruction of justice and abuse of power by the President, it looks like, to determine, to recommend whether, in the articles in the indictment.”
