A brief update…have just grabbed a Harvard trained lawyer co-wurker of mine, and he did indeed explain to me that the White House might pursue a subpoena through DOJ or Treasury, but that it does not possess that power on its own.

If any Senator “suggests the absence of a quorum,” the Presiding Officer must direct the roll to be called. Often, a […]

It’s Nice of Keith To Catch Up to Me
