Donald Trump Jr. recently was subpoenaed to testify before the Senate, and Mick Mulvaney is kvetching that he didn’t know about it in advance. Mulvaney said he was “blindsided” by the news. And bear in mind, the Senate committee that subpoenaed Junior is GOP-led, so that makes it sting even more. Politico:

He downplayed the potential implications of the subpoena, noting that Trump Jr. doesn’t work in the West Wing, but took a swipe at lawmakers for the lack of warning, accusing them of being on the brink of politicizing the panel.

“I have no opinion about that because he is a private citizen and not a member of the administration,” Mulvaney said. “That being said, the fact that the President’s son got a subpoena from a Republican-led committee — and listen, I’m all for bipartisanship on intel committees. I think it’s one of Adam Schiff’s great failings, is to — is to sort of politicize the Intel Committee in the House. So I have no difficulty with bipartisanship, but to subpoena the president of the United States’s son and not at least get a heads-up, I thought was — let’s say bad form.”

This is GOP-speak for, “The committee shouldn’t have done anything that I didn’t approve of. We’re not in a democracy anymore, this is the age of Trump, and we do things like in a totalitarian regime.”

Interesting that it went down this way. Maybe there’s a civil war brewing in the GOP? It has always been said that the minute Trump becomes more of a liability than an asset, the party will dump him. Maybe we’ve reached that point. This is a nice sign that might indicate that, at least. Hope springs eternal.

Poor Mulvaney thought he actually mattered in this White House. Just a matter of time before your ass is thrown out with the rest of tRumps trash.

To hell with giving Mulvaney a heads up. I just want to see this little creep in prison.

Well Richard Burr was leaking confidential information to the white house from the Russia investigation before. I think it is a shock that their informant would suddenly be calling dj jr back after the probe to clear up obvious lies jr and all the other crooks gave to them and not tell them in advance. These people do not even care about trying to hide the theft of America’s freedom.
