Megathread: House Subpoenas Pentagon Chief and Acting Director of Office of Management and Budget for Documents in Impeachment Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group 5l5zRucPAXhSfnN2BlgUfFRq5iXyo-DmDEcB7bDQb8s Megathread: House Subpoenas Pentagon Chief and Acting Director of Office of Management and Budget for Documents in Impeachment Inquiry r/politics

The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees on Monday subpoenaed the Department of Defense and the White House Office of Management and Budget for documents related to President Trump’s efforts to push Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.

The impeachment committees are probing whether Trump froze U.S. military aid to Ukraine in order to pressure its government to investigate Biden and his son over unsubstantiated corruption allegations. The subpoena compels the two agencies to turn over documents by Oct. 15.

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 40

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on /r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.


Hi there, /r/politics. Before we start, I’d like to restate the intention of this thread, which is to highlight local news. Therefore, any stories that made national news like the impeachment inquiry, other stories about national politicians like the President and US Senators, and stories about people running for the office of President, are considered off topic for this thread. Thank you, and enjoy your day.

Megathread: Federal Judge Rules President Trump Must Turn Over Eight Years Of Personal And Corporate Tax Returns

Westlake Legal Group w2j_CeSBPuI2SNefWOrwDzjro9g5tYe113G6E-rIq6s Megathread: Federal Judge Rules President Trump Must Turn Over Eight Years Of Personal And Corporate Tax Returns r/politics

A federal judge on Monday rejected a bold argument from President Trump that sitting presidents are immune from criminal investigations, allowing the Manhattan district attorney’s office to subpoena eight years of the president’s personal and corporate tax returns.

Lawyers for Mr. Trump were expected to appeal the ruling from Judge Victor Marrero of Manhattan federal court. The president’s could not immediately be reached for comment.

In a 75-page ruling, Judge Marrero said called president’s argument “repugnant to the nation’s governmental structure and constitutional values.” Presidents, their families and businesses are not above the law, the judge ruled.

In response, the President’s lawyers filed an emergency notice of appeal to the 2nd circuit.

‘Money Is Not Speech and Corporations Are Not People’: Sanders Unveils Plan to Get Corporate Money Out of Politics

Westlake Legal Group s7SZwvUfRRfDaHOiD90YwwokKCm9pR5Zspmq2FOhJl8 'Money Is Not Speech and Corporations Are Not People': Sanders Unveils Plan to Get Corporate Money Out of Politics r/politics

While there is giant partisan money out there there ruins ordinary people’s access to the America we know, Big Money has bigger goals that we are suppsoed to ignore.

Read “The Blue Book of the John Birch Society” to understand a top-down inflexibly dictatorial right wing lobbying organization. Charles Koch quit or was thrown out over objections to the Vietnam War. Robert Welch (“Mr John Birch”) thought racism was a communist conspiracy to cause dissent in America. Koch tolerates it, but he does not tolerate anyone who strays from his right wing party line. This is the guy who owns Mitch McConnell and the NRA.

Rupert Murdoch found a good market in pitching to that the guys who sit in the back of the bar and say nasty things about the advice ministers give from the pulpit. He has assembled a global organization that sells Hate for Profit under the “freedom of speech” banner. Wuthout his backing Brexit would not be a thing and the EU would be a poitlkical force.

Robert Mercer is a hedge fund billionaire with a hobby of using the internet to fix elections. He sited Cambridge Analytica in England to help Murdoch make an issue of Brexit. This also put him beyond the reach of US subpoenas. When Parliament went to investigate, CA filed for bankruptcy. CA was deeply involved in Trump’s election and has a reputation for fixing an election in Ukraine, among other countries.

The reporter who uncovered the Panama Papers was killed in a car bombing, and no one is investigating either that or the Papers. Jeffrey Epstein diead and no one is investigating a huge netowrk of clients beyons a few names that embarass liberals.

So yeah, there’s something weird about Shelly Adelson and Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed bin Salman offing a Washington Post correspondent who criticized Trump. But be serious: don’t let small potatoes distact you. NO ONE CARES ABOUT SOMEBODY SHOOTING UP HALF OF THE SAUDI OIL SUPPLY. The prize is control of the US military, and if you have it, world domination is in your grasp.

The GOP is gaslighting America

Westlake Legal Group Hk1t16VrOwii2vKsmFSFnne9eR6dtiVwS5GCycPguxE The GOP is gaslighting America r/politics

Is the president* a well known comedian? Is he performing a set on stage for a new special? Did he broadcast any of this in advance of this very public crime?

If the answer to these questions is no, congratulations! You’re aware that, “I was just joking,” isn’t a defense that would ever hold up in court.

Robbed a bank? Just kidding. Arson? Practical joke. Hostage taking? Some people take things too seriously. Serial killer? The guy really commits to the bit. Suicide Bomber? What an explosive performance!

This is the best defense they could come up with? The president* was joking when he committed a crime?
