House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) tore into ex-White House counsel Don McGahn for skipping his hearing in front of the committee on Tuesday morning.

Trump Opens New Fronts In All-Out War On Congressional Accountability

Suing Deutsche Bank. Threatening the IRS commissioner. Ordering subordinates to ignore congressional subpoenas. The last few weeks have seen the Trump White House and President Trump personally open up new, dramatic fronts in his war on congressional oversight. Conflict between branches of government — especially when they are controlled by opposing parties — is nothing new. Few observers expected the Trump administration to roll over and provide Democrats with volumes of documents and evide...
