Congress struggled to investigate Trump in the White House. This time things are different.
ByHayes Brown, MSNBC Opinion ColumnistThe House of Representatives doesn't exactly have a great record when it comes to fights with former President Donald Trump. Over the course of two years, Trump managed toscuttle, stymie or stonewall every investigation
into his misconduct that congressional Democrats threw his way. That included not one but two impeachment inquiries, the biggest gun in Congress' constitutional arsenal.Trump counted on the separation of powers to shield him — the head of the executive branch — from legislative branch inquires. But the investigation that kicked off Tuesday has the potential to be different. This time around, the House may not be willing to take no for an answer.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was front and center during the first impeachment inquiry in 2019, first leading the probe as chair of the Intelligence Committee and then managing the House case during Trump's Senate trial. At every step of the way, the Trump administration headtopics.com
forbade any voluntary compliancewith Schiff and other committee chairs' demands for records, communications and testimony from witnesses. The few documents that were turned over, like emails and text messages, came from career government officials, jilted political appointees or freedom-of-information lawsuits filed from outside Congress.
This time around, the House may not be willing to take no for an answer. Read more: MSNBC »

'Hitman' Trump: DC officer suggests Trump started MAGA riot as probe kicks offThe first hearing for the House select committee investigating the January 6th Capitol Hill riot featured emotional testimony from four Capitol Police officers attacked by alleged “Trump-inspired” rioters. MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber discusses the need for accountability and the committee’s full subpoena power. AriMelber Why aren’t cops around America NOT supporting the Capital police officers that were attacked 🤔 AriMelber What a joke this has become! AriMelber 'Trump Inspired' TERRORISTS you mean. We need to have the FBI testify next. 'Inspired' is NOT a word I feel we should be associating with an act of war. Re: incitement - was it ordered? I believe at the LEAST, they went there with PERMISSION from Trump, to get Pence & Pelosi.
Role of Trump era corruption pondered in delay of arrest of Trump friend BarrackRachel Maddow considers the possibility that a delay in the indictment of Donald Trump friend and inauguration committee chair Tom Barrack, as reported by CNN, could be part of an apparent pattern of corrupt deference to Trump associates by the Department of Justice in the Trump era, or perhaps a stall to wait out Trump's pardon power. maddow 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 maddow maddow I love how you keep grasping for ratings. Trump is the only way you are relevant.

Carol Leonnig reports that Trump ‘gleefully’ watched his supporters charge the Capitol on Jan 6Washington Post reporters and authors of ‘I Alone Can Fix It’ Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker discuss Trump’s reaction to the January 6th insurrection and the political ramifications for many of the former president’s staff who ignored the warning signs about the impeding riot This is real incitement to violence. Millions of people-----could become HOMELESS at the end of July Because the moratoriums on evictions ends But the Democrats have chosen to WASTE TIME investing a darn riot that took place 6 months ago This is why people don't vote Please stop calling it a 'riot'. It was a failed INSURRECTION.
'Hell he's created': Trump blasted for lies amid Covid-19 surge'This division, I don't know anything to compare it with because after 9/11, we were united,' Chris Matthews says. 'We saw a common enemy and we faced it down as a country, and I think we're still capable of doing that if we had leaders.' He's right about 'if we had leaders' - we don't have the leaders we need at this point in time ... we need ass kickers not the kumbaya brigade :( Were you? Because while certainly a lot of people thought they were united, behind the scenes you had the PNAC caucus for whom it was nothing more than political opportunity. Ramming through USAPATRIOT while everyone was still reeling, shows the enemy had already snuck in. Ya we have a leader asleep at the wheel and the media chooses to talk about the old guy instead of holding this administration accountable! It’s pathetic!
Trump endorses Paxton for 3rd term as Texas attorney generalAUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton received former President Donald Trump’s endorsement Monday for election to a third term, in which Trump called the legally beleaguered incumbent “a true Texan who will keep Texas safe — and will never let you down.” “DESPITE his legal troubles”? They probably WERE the reason! 🤣 Why even tweet shit like this out ? Here’s the headline . Criminal supports criminal, tries to continue grift “ wake the fuck up . The media in this country is pathetic
