White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday that President Donald Trump would not comply with subpoenas from investigators in Congress.
The House Judiciary Committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), this week subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify publicly next month. A former White House official has also recently defied a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee, which is also engaged in another legal battle to obtain financial documents related to Trump.
“[Trump] gave an interview to the Washington Post where he made very clear that there is really no reason to comply with all these requests when we have the Mueller investigation. We have already spent $30 million plus of taxpayer dollars in 22 months,” Conway told Fox News.
She added that Democrats were upset with the results of the Mueller investigation.
“I also believe that people are right in this country to look at the Mueller investigation as the definitive, conclusive, nonpartisan, tax-payer funded investigation that in the actual Mueller report makes clear the executive branch, the president himself never intervened, impeded or obstructed that investigation. In fact, made available all these people from the white House and his campaign all the documentation,” Conway continued.
“That’s not stopping Democrats,” Fox News host Sandra Smith interjected.
“It will cost them!” Conway shot back.

Former FBI agent explains why Trump just opened himself to more legal problems
Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained that the recent revelations that President Donald Trump made a promise to a foreign leader that made an intelligence official uncomfortable enough to declare themselves a whistleblower.
Rangapp explained that the President has a fairly wide latitude to conduct foreign affairs as he sees fit. But "when it comes to the 'outside world,' the President represents the sovereign: He is basically the voice of the United States and can negotiate with world leaders on its behalf."
Canada’s Trudeau admits to racist ‘brownface’ makeup in high school Halloween costume
Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized Wednesday for wearing brownface makeup to a party 18 years ago, as he scrambled to get on top of a fresh blow to a re-election campaign dogged by controversy.
Time magazine published the photograph one week into a federal election campaign with Trudeau's Liberal Party in a tight contest against the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer.
Trudeau, 47, whose party won a landslide victory in 2015, has already been under attack for an ethics lapse and other controversies.
The black-and-white photograph shows Trudeau, then 29, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands darkened at a gala party in 2001.
A veteran teacher explains why Trump is incapable of learning
While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
