Asked about Trump's assertion that he would fight subpoenas from the Jan. 6 Select Committee by invoking the presidential power, Psaki said that decision ultimately lies with Biden."We take this matter incredibly seriously," she said."The president has already concluded that it would not be appropriate to assert executive privilege, and so we will respond promptly to these questions as they arise, and certainly, as they come up from Congress."
Sept. 24, 202105:02While sitting presidents have traditionally used the power to shield certain information and records from the public at the request of their predecessors, Psaki said what happened during the Capitol riot deserves transparency."We have been working closely with the congressional committee and others as they get to the bottom of what happened on Jan. 6th, an incredibly dark day in our democracy," she said at the daily briefing. headtopics.com
She softened her remarks a little later in the briefing, saying the president has"an eye to not asserting executive privilege, and obviously, some of this is predicting what we don’t know yet, but that is certainly his overarching view."Her comments came one day after the committee subpoenaed and set a date for sworn depositions for
several top Trump allies— former White House strategist Steve Bannon, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former social media director Dan Scavino and Kashyap Patel, who was chief of staff to Trump's acting defense secretary.Trump said in a statement Thursday that,"We will fight the subpoenas on executive privilege and other grounds, for the good of our country." He also referred to the fact-finding panel as the"'Unselect Committee' of highly partisan politicians."
Biden's stance should make the panel's path easier, but Trump could still file a legal challenge to the committee's push to get his records from the National Archives.The panel's document request to the National Archives isand seeks"documents and communications within the White House on January 6, 2021” related to Trump’s advisers and family members. It also asks for his specific movements on that day and communications, if any, from the White House Situation Room.

Nor should he cause he wouldn’t for you Joe! Maybe he thinks that if he runs for president in 2024 that will somehow sheild him from prosecution. I hope to hell he gets indicted long before then!

Biden to Host World Leaders at White House to Share China ConcernsThe display of unity of the Quad—U.S., Australia, India and Japan—has irked Beijing, which has dismissed the group as a “clique” harboring a Cold War mentality.

Get in touch with Dennismayson7 and get a good mentorship and safe trading. What a sly move by Biden. He will pretend to be friends with China's enemies and then tell China everything they are going to do. Wake up Australia and Japan!!! I didn't know that David letterman was the leader of India?

They all felt safe and secure
House Democrats urge Biden to halt deportations of Haitian migrantsDemocrats have raised growing concerns over the Biden administration’s efforts to remove thousands of mostly Haitian migrants from a makeshift encampment on the banks of the Rio Grande River in Del Rio, Texas. Perhaps that savage should get some hair back (a wig or something) to keep whatever little brain matter she has left from escaping. Asylum doesn't mean that people can go to whatever country they want to. They have to go to the closest country not at war.
