Judge Smacks Down Trump Administration’s Claim That They’re Above The Law

When the second half of the Robert Mueller
report came out, uh, there was a lot of information in there that said that at the time, the white
house counselor Don McGahn had carried out a lot of orders that Donald Trump asked him
to do, that McGann felt were either inappropriate or quite possibly illegal. And after finding that out from the Mueller
report, Democrats in the house of representatives issued a subpoena for McGahn to come and testify
to them and explain what exactly he meant by carrying out orders by the president that
he felt were illegal. Donald Trump, of course, blocked McGann from
going to testify. They said, Nope, we have immunity. We’re not going to let Don McGahn or anyone
else from the white house, current or former go and testify in front of you. That was seven months ago that this happened. Well, yesterday, finally, a federal judge
issued a ruling on this case and said, guess what, Donald Trump, you are not a King. That was in the ruling, by the way. And yes, Don McGahn, you can in fact go and
testify. You still have all your legal rights when
you testify, you know, we’re, we’re not taking away your rights, you know, to claim the fifth
amendment, your freedom of speech, none of that. You still have all the legal rights a normal
person would have, but you cannot ignore a subpoena. There is no such thing as blanket immunity
and you’re going to go testify. I want to read this little snippet here from
the actual ruling itself because it’s so damning against Donald Trump stated simply the primary
takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that presidents are not
Kings. This means that they do not have subjects
bound by loyalty or blood whose destiny they’re entitled to control rather in this land of
Liberty. It is indisputable that current and former
employees of the white house work for the people of the United States and that they
take an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States. Moreover, as citizens of the United States
current and former senior level, presidential aides have constitutional rights including
the right to free speech and they retain these rights even after they have transitioned back
into private life. Meaning you’ve got your constitutional rights
buddy, even though you’re no longer the white house counsel, but you can’t be prohibited
from going and testifying in front of Congress. And again, this is related to what was said
in the Muller report. So this is kind of old news. The hearing is not, or the ruling, excuse
me, is not because it just came down yesterday, but this could have very serious ramifications
for the current hearings happening in the house of representatives because Donald Trump
has made same claim about the people. He is prohibited from testifying before Congress
that he did back in the Mueller days. And that is, we’ve got blanket immunity. You can’t call my people to testify. They’ve been prohibiting people inside the
white house from going in, speaking about the Ukraine scandal, just like they did about
the Mueller report. And this judge says, Nope, not going to fly. That can’t happen. So of course the Trump administration is absolutely
going to appeal this, but with any luck judges further down the line, possibly even the Supreme
court may end up agreeing with this federal judge. Because after all, as we’ve sta said, if you
give the white house blanket immunity, you also run the risk of giving the next democratic
president because eventually we’ll have another one. They would also enjoy that same immunity,
and that’s when it’s going to come back to bite those Republicans. So they’re not willing to take the chance
right now to say that the white house is in fact above the law because they know eventually
they’re not going to control the white house anymore.

  1. I wonder what it would take for Trump supporters to finally turn their backs on him. Maybe beating a US Olympic champion live on air with the constitution on fire as a weapon? Smh..

  2. GOP WINS! DEMS WIN! GOP WINS! DEMS WIN! – A never ending cycle. And the real losers, every bleeping time, are the American people.

  3. Just found this channel. WOW. Loved the Jordon commentary!
    The Republicans need to VOTE yes to impeach the day of the VOTE. Trump would no longer be able to control them. He would be ushered out of the White House and the Republicans can gain some respect from the American people.

  4. United States Supreme Court: US v Nixon – Executive Privilege does not apply to Congresional Investigations. United States Supreme Court: US v Clinton – Separate but Equall does not apply to Congresional investigations, he had to testify. WHY do those idiots think that the B$ they are pulling is legal?

  5. Trump: Lord of the Lies and a Wannabe King with a "God complex"; An unshakable belief characterized by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility. "The Chosen One" with Delusions of Grandeur, an increasing prevalence of Dementia, spectacular Narcissistic Personality Disorder, cringe-worthy Anti-Social Personality Disorder, resentful Envy, childish Entitlement, a surging growth of PARANOID Personality Disorder, unbridled Corruption and a Swamp of Greed. His minions, the GOP {Government Of Putin}, extorting The Ukraine, and payoffs from Saudi Arabia & Turkey, will circle their wagons and protect Trump, so they can continue to line their pockets, hiding the looting of our country in plain site, while 45 acts as their distraction. Unfortunately, corruption is commonplace in our government, however, this administration takes corruption to a Super Nova Level of Thievery.

  6. Ms Hill warned House politicians against pushing false conspiracy theories that minimise Russia’s meddling in US elections — because the Motherland is planning to do so again in 2020, according to her.
    “We are running out of time to stop them,” she said.
    “The impact of the successful 2016 Russian campaign remains evident today. Our nation is being torn apart. Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined. US support for Ukraine — which continues to face armed Russian aggression — has been politicised.
    “The Russian Government’s goal is to weaken our country — to diminish America’s global role and to neutralise a perceived US threat to Russian interests. President Putin and the Russian security services aim to counter US foreign policy objectives in Europe, including in Ukraine, where Moscow wishes to reassert political and economic dominance.

  7. Good. Let’s force Trump and his administration to comply with these investigations. Trump’s may want to be a king, but he isn’t. Hopefully, SCOTUS will rule against him.

  8. Trump-publicans obviously do NOT worry about a Democrat president benefiting from the precedents they are trying to set, because this is obviously an attempt at a dictatorial takeover. Republican congressmen are willing to give away congressional oversight, because they are trying to end democracy in this country. PERIOD. They know they can no longer win free and fair elections, which is the reason for all of their voter suppression and willingness to allow foreign countries to interfere in our elections. And because approximately 40% of the voters support them, this may indeed soon become a full-fledged dictatorship. We ARE in the biblical end times, after all. And Trump IS an anti-Christ, when you understand what an anti-Christ is. Want to know more? Seek and ye shall find. A teacher and prophet of God has spoken…….

  9. Could someone please explain to me why Trump, the WH and the GOP view the office of POTUS (if occupied by a republican) as immune to any and all Congressional oversight?

  10. I don’t understand how this is even a conversation when the Constitution that Americans claim to love so much was written specifically calling out the types of acts trump has admitted to perpetrating in order to prevent a demagogue like him from ascending to or retaining the power granted by the office he holds. Someone please explain.

    @D.A. Rudi The Supreme Court wipes its collective ass with the Constitution. It gives the majority sitting party dictatorial power. Their ridiculous way of interpreting the Constitution has, to paraphrase Jefferson, made it a thing of wax. This country needs to be rebooted by libertarian constructivists."

    "Replied to a comment on White House Lawyer ORDERED To Testify In Trump Impeachment Inquiry

    @nexus1g Another reason for Those living in tRump's "Alternative Reality" needing to get their heads out of his "Black Hole of Corruption" & uncloud their judgments, IF that is at all possible, as they continue to protect Corruption & Chaos in the U.S.!!!"

  12. That's great. It's what we already knew about the law, however, jurisprudence has a specific gravity much like syrup when it comes to real justice. They may not be able to stop it, but they will surely drag it out like a deflated zepplin. Hurry up and wait everyone. My patience is wearing really thin. Anyone else would be rotting in jail until they ever saw a court date. Trump may not be reality, but reality is surely Trump. GET THAT SCUM OUT OF HERE!

  13. We are gonna need to legalize marijuana after this is all done. The country needs to smoke a smidgen to decompress.

    Who does Trump think he is?

  16. "Blanket immunity", my fat hairy ass. An administration that acts like they have everything to hide is most certainly a criminal administration. Throw all of them in jail. #FTPTrump

  17. I don't know why they think their above the law there's no such thing here in America no one person is above the law.

  18. What will this matter when the administration "rope-a-dopes" all this into irrelevance?

    Can any legislation or constitutional amendments prevent this from happening in the future (if we have a future as a republic)?

  19. Lets be honest here, if the SCOTUS gives Trump complete immunity, they could just change their minds when a democrat comes into office. They know they would get away with it.

  20. The MAD doctrine of not doing something mutually self destructive is out the window with Republicans – this makes me think they are going to try to ensure that there is never anyone but a Republican (Trumpist) in power in the future…

    …They have decided to "nuke" the republic because they think they can win this "first strike" — likely because they see it as their only strike because of their demographic demise in a generation.

  21. This is great but thus far is been ignored by the circus that is taking place in D.C. by these "elected" officials. If other judges question this particular's judge verdict, and they rule against it, they themselves will be playing politics instead of sticking to the principles for which this Republic was created.
    I agree with you Farron if we continue on this path of "Letting Go" the next president or whomever, will think he/she is above the law and will do whatever they want. However this crap of allowing Trump to do whatever, should've been "Nip in the Butt" as soon he started to act like a child. But the Republican in D.C. just looked the other way since they were "drunk in power" because they had all 3 branches at the time.

    Let's see how this decision will play out…

  22. Donald Trump is under the illusion that he is a king. He is not. He is not above the law. His arrogance is astounding

  23. Only guilty people act like trump does, if he truly was Innocent and had nothing to hide he would cooperate,
    but he's guilty, and he'll continue to act like he is superior to everybody else

  24. "Presidential Immunity" is a fallacy the Repubes have been spouting from day #1. Can you imagine what it would have been like if OBAMA tried this horseshit? Oops, I fergawt…Drumpf is "special", meaning he need not obey the laws or Constitution according to the lovers of law & order as they ignore lawful subpoenas.

  25. But… Remember nothing will happen again. Look at everything that has happened !he has people who protect him. Like a Mitch McConnell people like that. He will Close about his presidency – Mark my words. And if this country is stupid enough to reelect him we will have to suffer. I have no faith in government anymore because they’ve let them get away with this for so long. People want to make comparisons to Nixon but what everybody’s forgetting is the whole country hated Nixon. The whole country wanted him out. That’s not the case here we are a country divided and that’s what helps him so much.He’s the person who always manages to get out of everything. And he’ll will get out of this too. I can guarantee it.

  26. There is a sovereign power in the United States, but it is not vested in the President, nor in Congress or even in the Supreme Court. The sovereign power in the U.S. government resides in the Constitution.
    That's why every Federal employee, from a President to a buck Private, takes an oath to serve it.

  27. The ruling did not say Donald Trump is not a GOD.

    All we can take away from this court case is that Donald Trump's divinity now has legal recognition.

  28. What is incredibly stupid is Republicans think if you support the Constitution, you must be a Democrat. What a narrow little world (and minds) they have!

  29. It just was a matter of time before all their bullshit, would be thrown back in their face and that's all it is. The republicans have been setting up this crap for a long time and the democrats with their weak approach to it has given it strength, it's taking the progressives to blow holes in this crap and finally, some news media are doing better and now a judge. We must continue to fight against this toxic administration and their president, until we get them out of government, 2020 people!!!!!

  30. the actions of an innocent man[TRUMP]what the fuck ever.if you believe this i have a bridge for sale in brooklyn,chump supporters

  31. Corruption + Bribery + Lies + Russia + 45 = American Nightmare…Hopefully the American Judicial System can see what this asshole 45 has been up to

  32. Farron ….. you have a nasty habit of NOT giving credit where credit is due. Instead of saying “the judge” or “this judge”, please just say the proper name of the judge… Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

    How hard can it be to do that?

  33. Trumpublicans: “But we installed the judges, they’re supposed to be on our side!”

  34. Trump believes he cannot be prosecuted for or charged with a crime. His lawyer literally just argued that Trump could shoot someone and he would be immune from prosecution. This topic needs to be addressed publicly immediately as it is incorrect. Removal for High Crimes and Misdemeanours would not be grounds for impeachment if he could not be charged with a crime. Trump, Barr, Pence, Giuliani, Mulvaney, Pompeo are all complicit … they should all be locked up.

    It keeps being reiterated that a suggestion made in a DOJ memo, saying that a sitting President cannot be charged with a crime, is somehow a brick wall against prosecution. There is nothing in the constitution that says that a sitting President cannot be investigated or charged with a crime. It does say that “the President cannot be guilty of a crime”. This one phrase is being deliberately “re-interpreted” in this memo to mean that nothing he does is a crime. It actually means that if he is found guilty of a crime then he can no longer be the President. It also means he should not have been allowed to run for President as he has been charged with numerable crimes (literally thousands of them) in the past and settled to avoid jail time. The fact that he can be charged with a crime is corroborated by the articles in the constitution relating to impeachment and removal from office for “High Crimes and Misdemeanours” requiring that a President be charged with committing a crime or an unethical act and removed from office by forced resignation if necessary to face prosecution. Considering how many crimes that Trump has been charged with in his lifetime so far he never should have been allowed to run in the first place 👉🏼 https://youtu.be/8WSfmGTUDp4

    Trump, Giuliani, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Barr, Pence – all implicated and complicit and their public appearances have damned them. And, during Giulianis’ butt-dial to a reporter he was overhead talking about looking for “Rob” … he was talking about Rob Goldstone which draws a direct line to Russian money and interference in the 2016 election and again for the 2020 election bid 👉🏼 “Junior? Would you like to commit Tree, Son?” https://youtu.be/H3EY8aLutbg

    Trump is now going after anyone who speaks against him using intimidation, threats and now bribery. Bribery of Senators is Obstruction of Congress … another impeachable crime. His attack on Romney intended to create a situation where republicans senators will be too afraid to vote against him during an impeachment trial in the senate. He called Republicans who don’t support him, “Human Scum”. He has labelled senators “treasonous” for not clapping for his insane rants, proving he doesn’t know what Treason is, which is ironic since he is the one guilty of Treason for “Conspiracy against the US” and “offering aid and comfort to enemies of the US” (befriending murderous Human Rights abusers, Putin and Kim). Trumps’ mob-like threats are dangerous and he knows it “Needlessly Ambiguous Terms”

  35. But can't Trump send this to the Supreme Court, who then will declare Trump to be the almighty King? I mean, almighty God!! OMG, OMG.

  36. For a man that claim to have done nothing wrong he and his administration is doing a whole lot to prevent things from coming into the public view. 👀

  37. Smack that orange fascist coward swamp hog Trump down! Slap that orange fascist coward swamp hog Trump down! Smack that orange fascist coward swamp hog Trump down. There is no goddamn immunity for a criminal president like Trump.

  38. He will never step foot into a courtroom over any of this. They might impeach him, maybe. He certainly will not be removed from office. This is all a big joke.

  39. "There has never been, ever before, an administration that’s been so open and transparent."
    My take on this quote:

  40. Do you see that…..Republican Politicians are garbage human beings….They don't believe in America….They don't believe in the constitution, they don't believe in the rule of law.
    Repubs want a fascist dictatorship……
    No Repubs….We don't have kings….Go…. get out of here…You are not Americans.

  41. trump thought being the president would be like being the ceo of your own company, where for all intents and purposes, you are the king. but he's finding out the hard way, he is an employee of the us citizens, not the employer, and it's not to his liking. just wait till he gets fired, he'll lose his little mind.

  42. To be above the law is the dream of every RethuglieKKKlan that's ever lived. Everything that they've done has been about dismantling rule of law and replacing it with rule of the rich.

  43. the republicans of the future would be like the handmaiden's tale if it was written by a canon film action movie script writer from the reagan era

  44. They are worried about a future Democratic president, they will use the Electoral College to insure that won't happen.

  45. I know that you're married….TO a woman. Mr. Cousins? The more I watch your videos? The more I wish you were Gay. But you aren't.

  46. People don’t you all get it yet? All this above the law tactic is just a ploy to stop 🛑 talking about the real issue—!! These people are trying their best to protect Trump and Russia because they are working for Russia 🇷🇺—-!! Who cares who’s above the law and who isn’t?? America wants that Russian Terrorist out of that WH—all this other talk is just a tactic to skirt the issues—-!! Get that stinking Russian woman 👩 out that WH—!

  47. OK – so they will answer the subpoena and then just take the 5th or invoke executive privilege at the point of questioning instead – All this order does is waste even more tax dollars.

  48. Preserve, Protect and Defend THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES !!! The Ultimate Sacrifice of our Heroes & Patriots & Our Grieving Military Families will Always be in our Hearts & Prayers and their blood is not for sale !! Our immediate and most dangerous situation is that Trump continues as President and Chief of our Armed Services. It has been investigated and verified by all of our Intelligence Agencies & NATO Allies, that Russia' (Putin) did attack and is influencing & undermining the Election Process in the United States !! The United States Adversaries are attentively evaluating and will continue to focus on Suckaberg's $$$$$$$ Russian weaponized media, to Elect and legislate in our Country !!! The Congress must divert urgent attention and funds to defend and respond to these threats. Stop wasting Billions on Nuclear weapons and War Games!!! The World has enough NUKES to turn Mother Earth into a RADIOACTIVE WASTELAND !! Not even a dictator wants to turn into a heap of fuming ashes !! The Majority of the American people do not have the time between holding 2 jobs , child care , caring for our elderly to investigate the Conspiracy and Obstruction .!!!!. Elected Officials abusing our own Constitution and Justice System to protect Traitors !!!! Pray that God gives our Generals and Others around the President, the moral strength as Patriots to Guard and Protect our Country !!!! By the way, where is Trump getting all this extra money to pay for these multi-million dollar Constitutional Attorney Firms ???? God Bless America, Mother Earth, our sick, our elderly, ,the homeless families with children thrown to the streets by the greed of our Banks & Wall Street, the working poor, our citizen immigrants, our Unions, our Heroes and Patriots. Putin & his Billionaire Russian Oligarchs , Billionaire Pedofile International Club have been and are currently laundering money in the United States.. Just ask Trump & Co. which has been financed throughout the last 30 Years !!! Multiple Bankruptcies including Casinos !!! Of his own making, President Trump's greediness has left him with only 2 choices; chemical poisoning of his family by Putin or Prison !! The GOP & NRA received Millions for the Trump Campaign disbursement from Russian Oligarchs. The NRA has 10 Million members, Trump has 30 Million followers, and the rest of the 230 million American citizens must VOTE these Traitors and Co-Conspirators out of Office and into Prison.!!. America has millions of working poor in prison who couldn't afford expensive attorney firms like Trump & Associates.!! The 1% Billionaires received 2 TRILLION tax cuts, while 18 years later the 911 first responders are dying while waiting for GOP to fund their healthcare !!!. These Casino Prostitutes in Congress and the House are bought and paid for by parasite lobbyist yelling from atop their Billion $$$$ Corporate Socialist Platforms against Democratic Socialism for our children, our elderly and our poor. Our Constitution and Federal Anti Trust Act, Money Laundering and the Rico Act will take care the Trump Mob & Associates & Suckaberg's $$$$$ Russian weaponized media !!!!!. Bless our Country , our Heroes and Patriots. May all the Traitors , Co-Conspirators & useful IDIOTS be charged and given a one way ticket to Russia and in memory of sweet children, innocent victims of gun violence in America be given an NRA AK-47 when they step off the plane !!!!!!!

  49. And yet.. Nothing will happen.. 2021 will soon come and hopefully we will start forgetting this nightmare.. And the orange buffoon will be on his merry way…

  50. Why can't I be labeled merely "inappropriate" when I wanna drive 80 mph on the freeway at night on a damn near empty freeway? Or if I wanna slap the cop for lying that I was doing 100mph instead of 80?

  51. It is HIGH TIME that the Sergeant at Arms be given some subpoenas to pass out! If you don't testify, you GO TO PRISON. That is how the law works. Period.
