President Donald Trump raged House Democrats who cast a contemptuous vote against two of his cabinet members and warned them that republicans will remember when it is time to vote in next year's elections.
& # 39; Republicans will remember it! & # 39 ;, Trump promised on Twitter frenzy on a Thursday morning.
The President, in his response to Democrats who voted in favor of Attorney General Bill Barr and Trade Minister Wilbur Ross, dismissed Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena summons for documents relating to adding a citizenship question to the census of 2020, praised quotes from conservatives who supported his arguments.
President Donald Trump raged against House Democrats who voted contemptuously against two members of his cabinet
He participated in a long Twitter discussion following Wednesday's voting in the House Surveillance and Reform Commission, the newest step in the growing battle between showcases between the executive and legislatures.
& # 39; Not related to Russia, Russia, Russia (although Radical Left no longer uses the name Russia since the issue of the Mueller report), the House Committee now plays the rarely used & # 39; Contempt & # 39; card on our great A.G. & Sec. of Commerce – this time about the Census, & tweet Trump.
& # 39; Dems play a much more difficult game than the Republicans when they had the majority of the House & he said.
He then quoted attorney Bruno, a frequent guest on Fox News, who added his own commentary in brackets: "This has been disputed before the US Supreme Court, but Parliament does not want to wait. This is a common thread throughout all committees – do everything you can embarrass the Trump government (and the republicans) and attack the Trump government, this is campaigning through the Dems. "Lawyer David Bruno."
& # 39; So true!, & # 39; Trump wrote about the quote. & # 39; In the meantime, they get NO work done with prices for medicines, infrastructure and more. & # 39;
The president then proceeded to a ban – a trial that speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to hold back in the House for fear that the proceedings would fight against her party during the 2020 elections.
Trump quoted lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who appeared on the Sean Hannity show on Wednesday evening, again adding his own brackets: & # 39; Congress cannot harm President Trump (did nothing wrong), because if they did, they would putting oneself above the law. The constitution contains criteria for accusation – betrayal, bribery, high crimes and misconduct. Unless there is convincing evidence, accusation is not constitutionally permissible. & # 39; Alan Dershowitz, constitutional lawyer. & # 39;
The president's anger follows Tuesday's vote in the House that authorizes Democratic committee chairmen to go to court to enforce subpoenas against Congress administration.
After that vote, the former White House communications director Hope Hicks agreed to testify next week for the House Justice Committee.
Attorney General Bill Barr and Trade Minister Wilbur Ross voted in contempt for Congress for refusing to comply with a summons from Congress for documents relating to adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census
President Trump made a protective step before Wednesday's vote on Barr and Ross: claiming the privilege of the executive over the documents that the Democrats were looking for.
But the committee voted 24 against 15 to keep the two men in civil and criminal contempt for not following the summons.
Republican representative Justin Amash, the only GOP legislator calling for an accusation against Trump, crossed the aisle to vote with democrats.
After the vote, supervisory chairman Elijah Cummings said in a statement that this & # 39; was the last thing I wanted to do & # 39 ;.
He added: “I did everything to try to cooperate with the administration, but they delayed the efforts of our committee to conduct this investigation and fulfill our responsibilities under the constitution. the bud was nipped and damaged. & # 39;
Ross called the mood a & # 39; empty stunt & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This is a disappointing day for Congress and our country. America deserves better, & he said in a statement.
The Ministry of Justice accused the committee of & # 39; playing political games & # 39 ;.
Hope Hicks will testify before the House Jurisdiction Committee next week
The next steps are unclear and the Democrats are probably waiting to see if the two departments offer a kind of deal for the documents.
Otherwise they could take the contempt for the quote from Congress – including criminal and civil charges – on the floor of the House. Or they could drop the charge, just as Democrats dropped an earlier charge against Barr.
