House subpoenas Kellyanne Conway.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/26/polit...ing/index.html

Quote:
The House Oversight Committee voted on Wednesday to subpoena testimony from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after a federal agency recommended that she should be fired for repeatedly violating a law that limits the political activities of federal employees.

Chairman Elijah Cummings, Democrat of Maryland, has warned that his panel would vote to hold Conway in contempt if she ignores the subpoena. Conway did not appear on Wednesday on the advice of White House counsel for the committee's scheduled hearing.

The vote -- 25 to 16, with Democrats and Rep. Justin Amash, Republican of Michigan, voting in favor -- could set up another challenge in court between Congress and the Trump administration, which has consistently stymied Democrats' oversight efforts since they took control of the House earlier this year.

"This is not a conspiracy to silence her or restrict her First Amendment rights," Cummings said. "This is an effort to enforce federal law."

"Nobody in this country is above the law," added Cummings.

“So, it didn’t happen because she’s not his type. That is the sound of a man realizing in midsentence that he’s not talking to Billy Bush.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“If your denial leaves people thinking there is a type of woman you would rape, that’s not a good denial.” — TREVOR NOAH

“But it shows you how out of whack Trump’s priorities are. He’s being accused of rape and his first concern is letting people know what his standards are for women. It’s like you’re accused of murdering someone at a Holiday Inn and your response is, ‘I stay at the Ritz-Carlton!’” — TREVOR NOAH

“That’s not a defense — that’s a confession. It’s like if you ask Hannibal Lecter, ‘Did you eat that guy?’ and he said, ‘No, he looked a little bony.’” — SETH MEYERS

Colbert’s point was my favourite.

“If you were accused by one person of pooping in their house, I might be inclined to believe that was a lie. But if I heard from 22 separate people that you pooped in their house... you might be a house pooper.”
