White House blocks former deputy counsel from answering over 200 questions from House Democrats: report

Published

On Monday, the House Judiciary Committee released the transcript for their hearing with former Deputy White House Counsel Annie Donaldson — revealing that the White House blocked her from answering 212 questions in connection with former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation:

Donaldson broadly told the committee that large portions of what they were seeking was privileged. She did, however, also confirm the accuracy of the notes on her from Mueller’s prosecutors.

Donaldson, who is married to a Trump judicial nominee who failed spectacularly amid questions about his defenses of the KKK, served as an aide to White House Counsel Don McGahn between 2017 and 2018. After leaving the post, she took up with the law firm of former Alabama Sen. Luther Strange.

Democrats sought testimony from Donaldson because her notes to Mueller provided some of the most damning accounts of episodes in which the president potentially obstructed justice. She is the third such witness the White House to come before the House on the matter.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"

Then CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin flattened Santorum.
