house Bill H. Res. 430

Should the House Judiciary Committee Go to Federal Court to Enforce Mueller Report-related Subpoenas of AG Barr & Don McGahn?

Argument in favor

The Trump administration is engaged in a cover up because it won’t provide the Judiciary Committee with an unredacted version of Special Counsel Mueller’s report that includes protected grand jury testimony. Former White House Counsel Don McGahn should be compelled to testify before Congress.

No one should be able to.get away with thumbing their nose at Congress. Congress needs to go to court and give them the finger.

Laws are laws. If we allow people to publicly flaunt their lawbreaking and do nothing, we don’t really have laws do we? This tactic acceptance or even encouragement of lawbreaking from some lawmakers is fundamentally a core violation of their oaths of office. At minimum they must be evicted from office by the voters. Frankly, they deserve to be in jail for being accomplice to crimes.

Congress is doing what it is elected to do: be a co-equal branch of government and investigate when one branch is doing possible illegal activities. No one is above the law and an Attorney General who is acting as an attorney for the President and not the people and not being responsible to Congressional calls should be held in contempt and possibly arrested if the contempt continues.

Argument opposed

This bill is nothing more than a partisan attempt to use the existence of grand jury testimony that’s required to remain private under federal law in an effort to undermine faith in Special Counsel Mueller’s report. The subpoena of former White House Counsel Don McGahn may eventually be quashed by federal courts.

Good grief...It's over people. This is happening because the democrats are freaking out about all the reports coming out that are going to set them on their ear over this witch hunt. This is what real deflection tactics look like. Anymore, I'm trying to figure out which level of Dante's Inferno applies to Nadler. Probably multiple.

    It should be made public. The redacted one I read was damning. Have you read the report yet. I read in the paper that no Alaska reps had. Step up

    The law must be enforced, else it’s useless. Please enforce the subpoenas and get this information to the American public.

    House of Representatives must do their constitutional Duty to enforce subpoenas by going to federal court and endeavor to get a Bench Warrant out, for the obviously Lawless corrupt treasonous Tяump Pence Administration and it's officials who defy a lawful subpoena🚔⚖🏬

    NOBODY should be able to simply ignore the law not have any repercussions from it. The arrogance of this is incomprehensible. Forget about court, they should be in jail and stay there until they decide that maybe following the law is in their best interest. Or at least until the USSC decides they don't have to (which rest assured they would given the most recent additions).

    The fact of the matter is that the Mueller report neither accuses nor exonerates Donald Trump of obstruction charges, even going so far as to say that “if we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state”... anyone with even an elementary understanding of English can understand that this means that there is not enough evidence to say that Donald Trump did not obstruct justice. So for people to state that the “witch hunt” is somehow over is shortsighted. Furthermore, AG Barr has repeatedly misrepresented the Mueller report, touting “no collusion, no obstruction, total exoneration” when in reality that is a half-truth. When an attorney general misleads the public, congressional subpoenas become necessary to reveal the truth. No one is above the law in the US.

    👉👉The current DNC congress members DO NOTHING but keep attempting to Divide Americans and remove POTUS. President Trump has created millions of Job- robust economy (not created by the past administrations)- and working on fair trade and stoppage to illegals which WE pay for- so the DNC gets their votes. What has the DNC done??? Attempt to Stop ALL of this- NEVER VOTE DNC. Why vote for them- they care far more for illegals and HIGH taxes to pay for their votes.

    At a minimum. I think they should simply arrest them and give the maximum one year in prison and $100,000. fine.

    Yes absolutely yes. The subpoenas need to be enforced and the people who have been subpoenaed need to show up.

    There is no cover up. There is copy of the report available the only things that are still redacted are the items that Barr cannot legally disclose. The democrats want Barr to break the law by disclosing those items. This is getting so old. The democrats are so afraid Trump will take 2020 they will stop at nothing to make that not happen. He has done nothing wrong and yet the cry baby’s can’t give it up.

    Congress has the oversight responsibility of the executive branch. The rest of the drama by the administration is idiotic and unconstitutional. This administration has put our democracy and freedom at a huge risk.

    They are just wasting time and resources. Try doing what the people put you in to do. On the other hand, maybe it is best you don’t do anything at all. Might keep America safer and better off.

    If Congress doesn’t go to court in order to enforce their subpoenas issued to Trump’s people then they are as guilty as Trump and his people are. Congress must act now.

    No one is above the law. Send them that message with a subpoena and cuffs from the capital police. A jail term will be a big exclamation point! And this runaway gov’t will get the brake job it needs. If you don’t, then what is the message? FILL the swamp?
