The House Judiciary Committee is going to subpoena 12 individuals including Stormy Daniels as part of their investigation into Trump abuse of power.
Democrats Are Digging Into Trump’s Abuse Of Power
In addition to seeking subpoenas for Kushner and Sessions, the committee is expected to vote to authorize Nadler to summon White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly; former national security adviser Michael Flynn; former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; former deputy attorney general Rod J. Rosenstein; former White House deputy chief of staff Rick Dearborn; assistant attorney general Jody Hunt; and former White House staff secretary Rob Porter.
The committee is also seeking to compel testimony related to payments to women before the 2016 election who claimed to have had affairs with Trump years ago. To that end, the committee is expected to authorize subpoenas of Keith Davidson, a former attorney for adult-film star Stormy Daniels; and National Enquirer editor Dylan Howard and American Media Inc. chief executive David Pecker. Prosecutors allege that both were involved in deals to silence Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal.
Trump can’t block all of these witnesses from testifying
Trump can only block those who worked for him in the White House from testifying. He can’t stop anyone associated with Stormy Daniels hush money felonies from appearing before the House Judiciary Committee. It is a given that those who work for the administration currently or who previously served in the Trump administration will be blocked from testifying or they won’t show up. The Stormy Daniels crimes deserve a full investigation. The President Of The United States is an unindicted felony co-conspirator.
The Trump crime wave has been so extensive and unrelenting that it is easy to overlook that there is a felony case right in front of our eyes.
When Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal testify before the Judiciary Committee in public, it is going to revive some huge problems for Donald Trump.
