Trump Says Pelosi Subpoena Threat 'Illegal,' Grounds For Supreme Court Battle

President tells The Washington Times he doesn't fear impeachment in exclusive interview

The Washington Times
By Dave Boyer and S.A. Miller
Thursday, November 1, 2018

Excerpt:

President Trump said Thursday that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s threat to weaponize committee subpoena power if Democrats win Congress is illegal and grounds for the administration to fight any subpoena all the way to the Supreme Court.

“Pelosi says she’s going to mechanize the speakership and use it as a great negotiation with the president. That’s an illegal statement,” Mr. Trump said in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times.

The president remained optimistic about Republicans retaining their House majority, but he fumed about Mrs. Pelosi’s subpoena threat should her party prevail in the midterm elections Tuesday.

He said the threat begged a lengthy court battle.

“That alone takes two years to get it to the Supreme Court — that statement — before you do anything,” he said, becoming animated with indignation. “You heard her the other night.”

Mrs. Pelosi made the remark last week at CNN’s campaign forum.

“Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it,” Mrs. Pelosi said in an interview with Dana Bash. “It’s a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects.”

Mrs. Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond when The Washington Times relayed the president’s message.

Trump is correct.

It's an outright threat of extortion and blackmail to harass, intimidate and coerce.

Pelosi needs to be arrested and charged.

The Democrats need to think carefully about weaponizing government a second time. The may not like the payback they receive in return for issuing their brand of payback.

Absolutely, in fact it's one that can be used to throw the skank in prison. You can't pull the crap she pulls, honestly now you know why Bush was such a wuss.

Like using the IRS, EPA and US Customs and other alphabet agencies to go after destroy conservative owned businesses, organizations and individuals?

Like Gibson USA?

A-yup! :yes:

A tall redwood tree in her native Kalifornia is better.
