WASHINGTON - Patrick Philbin, deputy counsel to President Donald Trump, tried to counter the charge of obstruction of Congress, saying the White House did not comply with House Democrats’ subpoenas because they were not legally valid.
He argued that the House did not follow correct rules in authorizing the impeachment inquiry – thus making the subpoenas void.
In fact, Philbin suggested the entire impeachment inquiry was illegitimate because the full House never voted to open a probe.
“There was no vote to authorize the committee to exercise the power of impeachment,” he said. So Schiff’s committee didn’t have the authority to issue subpoenas.
He said Trump was not allowed to have counsel in the initial closed-door interviews with key witnesses, and was only invited to participate at the end of the probe.
Our case against lyin’, cheatin’, liddle’ Adam “Shifty” Schiff, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, their leader, dumb as a rock AOC, & the entire Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrat Party, starts today at 10:00 A.M. on @FoxNews, @OANN or Fake News @CNN or Fake News MSDNC!
