House Judiciary chairman subpoenas ex-White House counsel Don McGahn

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Monday subpoenaed former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify publicly next month following last week's release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on the Russia investigation.

Nadler described McGahn, who stepped down as White House counsel in October 2018, as "a critical witness to many of the alleged instances of obstruction of justice and other misconduct described in the Special Counsel's report."

The committee's ranking member, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., slammed Nadler's move.

"For the second time in four days, the chairman has issued a subpoena prematurely and contrary to his pledge not 'to issue a subpoena every time we have a disagreement with the administration.' Don McGahn sat for more than 30 hours of interviews with the special counsel’s investigation, and the chairman has answered that with a stunning 36-item subpoena. Instead of looking at material that Attorney General [William] Barr has already made available, Democrats prefer to demand additional materials they know are subject to constitutional and common-law privileges and cannot be produced."

Okay, since the investigation went through to the end and there was absolutely no evidence of collusion and the investigation concluded without interference from Trump then how is there obstruction?
So, if the President who is the chief executive of the US and has the constitutional right and authority to fire his subordinates including Comey, Sessions, and Mueller if he wanted. How is there obstructions?

The dumbocrats are desperate to stay in power and distract the country from the fact that the dumbocrat party is being taken over by far left loonies that have no platform to stand on.
