Judge Rules "Presidents Are Not Kings," Meaning Don McGahn May Be Compelled To Testify

The President was dealt a setback in his effort to stonewall the House impeachment inquiry when a judge ruled that former White House lawyer Don McGahn is not immune from a congressional subpoena. #Colbert #Monologue #Impeachment

    Trump is a breathing mistake with no discernible value of any kind, but I am always stunned anew by how disgusting he is to look at. His head looks like a bloated, infected toe (same I.Q. I'm sure)

    I'm sure Trump had zero clue when he said this, but US military issue MREs do actually say "Warfighter Approved" on them, which is some clunky, sappy branding by the contractor or something..

    Sure you heard wrong. How could anyone want pardoned war criminals to campaign for him? Were they incorrectly labeled criminals? I haven't heard anything about this except for marijuana sellers and smokers. I don't think they are war criminals. Please tell me that it was a joke or I was high.

    What democrats don't understand is that Trump was hired to cut government and he is doing just that, in his own weird way (surprisingly more republicans than democrats). The problem is that liberals are so pro government it's not funny.

    He wants the war criminals and disgraced soldiers that he pardoned by breaking all protocol and meddling in the military justice system to the point of firing the navy secretary for telling him straight up that what he was doing was unacceptable. Trump has the worst combination of qualities when it comes to learning; he knows nothing and completely lacks any sense of intellectual curiosity so he doesn't ever know anything except what people tell him, and he doesn't even listen. He doesn't know or care about the presidency. He's been told he can dismiss ambassadors, but doesn't care to know that there are restrictions, he can't be dismissing them for petty or criminal reasons as revenge without consequences, even if they're informal like turning congress and the public against him. Same goes for overturning the public and military courts. There are consequences. Informal or formal. Abuse of power is a formal consequence. And how dumb is he to think that having these people campaign for him would have beneficial consequences? We know what these people did. Gallagher, Lorance and Golsteyn are murderers. Cold blooded murderers of civilians. They were found guilty because they are guilty. Same goes for the civilian pardons Trump has handed out. He has totally perverted the justice systems. As if anyone would find that appealing. But let's be real. That's the best Trump could do. Such a despicable person. That's all he attracts. Everyone around him is just awful. His entire orbit.

    Stop whining about Trump already. Take some responsibility. It's not Trump. It's the American society. You are to blame. You enabled this trash bag travesty. You, the American voter. Here in Europe people'd be in the streets demonstrating long time ago. Pathetic!

    All I can think to "say" is to just remember that regardless of whether or not whomever is or is not doing whatever whomever else is or is not doing and or whether or not whomever does or does not have anything(s) or otherwise to do with whomever else that, whoever is born in a certain area is native to that area if only by technical definition. Oh yes and in regards to the hearings: the U.S. congress just needs to do their job; then it will be up to the U.S. senate to do theirs! "Stay tuned!"...;)

    As a Democrat the impeachment hearings are pointless and rather stupid. This will have to pass through the senate last and there will need to be 12 Republicans who vote to impeach him and I just don’t see that happening. There are more than 12 Republicans who don’t support him, but voting against him will be seen as a betrayal. 90% of trump voters support the president in a fanatical way. As a Republican You vote against him, and you’ll get pushed out of office. It’s a shit system, but it’s the one we have and this is all stupid. He’s got less than a year left, just sit it out and actually show up to the polls this year, cause red voters may be statistically speaking rather uneducated, but at least they show up, democrats make lazy ass voters.

    Technically "warfighters" is actually a phrase used by DoD and military contractors so it's not surprising for him to use that. That said...Trump is still an idiot.

    For a second I was thinking how weird it is for a president to pardon a war criminal, but then I remembered that Trump already pardoned Joe Arpaio, who seriously abused detainees. We're already so far past the point of decency that it's scary.
