Why aren’t evangelical leaders demanding All The President’s Men do their duty and testify before Congress that they claim was established by Jesus? The evil experiment the evangelicals have been conducting on our democracy has all but destroyed it – along with the Republican party founded by my kindred!
Get out of my families party! Surrender to the nearest Lunatic Camp!
Mulvaney had been invited earlier in the week to appear Friday for a closed-door deposition. When asked if Mulvaney would comply with the new subpoena, a senior administration official pointed NBC News back to a statement made earlier in the week by deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley when he was first asked about the possibility.
“Past Democrat and Republican Administrations would not be inclined to permit Senior Advisers to the President to participate in such a ridiculous, partisan, illegitimate proceeding — and neither is this one,” said Gidley.
Mark Sandy, director for national security programs at the Office of Management and Budget, was also scheduled to appear Friday morning. While his plans were unclear, other OMB officials have ignored subpoenas.
Last month, Mulvaney told reporters in the White House briefing room that President Donald Trump had held up U.S. military assistance to Ukraine in order to get Ukraine to investigate a conspiracy theory involving Ukraine influencing the 2016 presidential election.
“The look back to what happened in 2016 certainly was part of the thing he was worried about in corruption with that nation, and that is absolutely appropriate,” Mulvaney said.
