Devin Nunes may be facing a little-known challenger, but he’s not blinking: He has more cash on hand than any other Republican House incumbent in California. https://t.co/9TWccIYbfN— POLITICO (@politico) May 26, 2018
Another must read from @KimStrassel: The real constitutional crisis is claim by a subdivision of Article II executive branch that it is not obliged 2 submit 2 oversight of Article I, and indeed has authority separate from the president’s. Radical claims. https://t.co/QLt2GAtSW7— Hugh Hewitt (@hughhewitt) May 25, 2018
The Real Constitutional Crisis https://t.co/RMpGZe1Fuy— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) May 25, 2018
Democrats and their media allies are again shouting “constitutional crisis,” this time claiming President Trump has waded too far into the Russia investigation. The howls are a diversion from the actual crisis: the Justice Department’s unprecedented contempt for duly elected representatives, and the lasting harm it is doing to law enforcement and to the department’s relationship with Congress.
The conceit of those claiming Mr. Trump has crossed some line in ordering the Justice Department to comply with oversight is that “investigators” are beyond question. We are meant to take them at their word that they did everything appropriately. Never mind that the revelations of warrants and spies and dirty dossiers and biased text messages already show otherwise.
We are told that Mr. Trump cannot be allowed to have any say over the Justice Department’s actions, since this might make him privy to sensitive details about an investigation into himself. We are also told that Congress—a separate branch of government, a primary duty of which is oversight—cannot be allowed to access Justice Department material. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes can’t be trusted to view classified information—something every intelligence chairman has done—since he might blow a source or method, or tip off the president.
That’s a political judgment, but it holds no authority. The Constitution set up Congress to act as a check on the executive branch—and it’s got more than enough cause to do some checking here. Yet the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation have spent a year disrespecting Congress—flouting subpoenas, ignoring requests, hiding witnesses, blacking out information, and leaking accusations.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has not been allowed to question a single current or former Justice or FBI official involved in this affair. Not one....
This Clapper et al line that purpose of spy was to monitor Russians, not campaign, is a joke. Did FBi task a spy to the Clinton campaign too? How about we insert one this year in every midterm campaign—just in case? Anything to watch those Russians, right?— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) May 25, 2018
The holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies who lay claim to the truth, but publish only enough to sugarcoat the lie, is why the public no longer respects them https://t.co/Ay2DwCOMkr— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 23, 2018
Musk continues his slow transformation into a media-baiting Trump figure screaming irrationally about fake news. Hope it works out for you dude! https://t.co/CtHkOip747— Andrew J. Hawkins 🚂🚇🚀 (@andyjayhawk) May 23, 2018
Thought you’d say that. Anytime anyone criticizes the media, the media shrieks “You’re just like Trump!” Why do you think he got elected in the first place? Because no ones believes you any more. You lost your credibility a long time ago.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 23, 2018
