Mueller slaps former aide to Trump ally Roger Stone with grand jury subpoena

Published

on

Andrew Miller, a former aide to longtime Trump ally Roger Stone, has been hit with a grand jury subpoena by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The New York Times reports that Miller has been “subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury hearing evidence in the Russia investigation and to hand over documents.”

However, Miller’s attorney is working to get Mueller’s subpoena of his client shot down.

The right-wing National Legal and Policy Center, which is funding Miller’s defense, tells the Times that its goal is nothing less than shutting down the entire Mueller probe.

“The founders feared exactly what we see in Mueller: a runaway federal official,” the organization said. “We hope to see Mueller’s operation disbanded, once and for all.”

Stone has become a recent focus of Mueller’s probe — and he has publicly admitted now that he met with a man claiming to be a Russian agent who promised him dirt on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Additionally, Stone told one of his associates that he “dined” with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to discuss obtaining dirt on Clinton, although Stone has since claimed that he was lying about being in direct contact with Assange.

Previously, Stone had denied having any contact with any Russians during the 2016 campaign, although recently revelations have shown that this assertion was flat-out untrue.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
