Stonewalling Saturday

FILE PHOTO - Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) speaks during a mark up hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington

Nadler slams Trump for stonewalling.

Congressional Democrats and President Donald Trump are in a stand-off over impeachment, with Democrats requesting documents and interviews from the executive branch and the administration defying those requests by citing executive privilege and declaring Congress’ investigations invalid. It’s a constitutional clash with one all-but-inevitable end point: The Supreme Court.

In order to conduct an impeachment inquiry and come to a decision about whether Trump has committed offenses unbefitting of his office, Congress needs to consider evidence. In an inquiry focused on Ukraine, it would need testimony from individuals involved in diplomacy there and others at the White House. But the administration is stonewalling by blocking witnesses and ignoring subpoenas by asserting the president has a right to confidentiality in his conversations with advisers, and more broadly alleging that the House’s impeachment investigation is an unconstitutional political vendetta.

    Too much stuff! George Carlin knows his stuff!

    I’ve always wondered why people have so much stuff that they rent storage units…then the stuff just sits there, they don’t see it, use it….but they still think they need it!

    Boy does this place need a paint job! Peeling window frames, eves and siding, will be looking for a painter soon. Ordered new front and rear doors today, prehung so I have to remove the old ones frame and all, one day per door labor on my part, I’m old. The ones that are in there now leak so bad you can see light around them, not good for the utility bills either.

    Sat with my granddogs for 4 hours while Jill and Brian went to a family function. His family, of course. Their heat wasn’t working, chilly in the house, but tolerable. Both dogs curled up against me at different times. Since they NEVER do that, I know they did that for warmth.

    I knocked out 4 episodes of “Dark Matter” on Netflix.

    Cooked today, a shrimp dish and washed clothes. That was about it.
