Donald Trump has claimed that he is “the most transparent president and administration in the history of our country by far.”
And yet, deferring to a last-minute instruction from the White House (i.e., Donald Trump) to disregard House Democrats’ demands, former White House Counsel Don McGahn is refusing to comply with the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena for documents related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
McGahn delivered some of the most damning testimony in Mueller’s investigation of whether Trump attempted to obstruct the probe into his 2016 campaign’s links to the Russian government. So is it any wonder that “the most transparent president and administration in the history of our country by far” is ordering McGahn, and others of his current and former White House staff, to defy congressional subpoenas?
To those of you who think Donald Trump is the greatest thing since sliced bread and is the second coming of Jesus, have you ever asked yourselves why he’s trying so hard to prevent people from testifying before Congress if he doesn’t have anything to hide? My guess is that you haven’t.
Mr. Transparency my ass!
