BREAKING NEWS: The White House is working behind the scenes to limit the testimony to congressional investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to CNN.
Their efforts to limit testimony suggest a cover-up.
The attempts to curtail testimony to congressional investigators became clear this week when former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon appeared before the House Intelligence Committee and infuriated both sides of the aisle by refusing to answer questions about his work during the presidential transition and in the White House.
At some points during Bannon’s six hours of closed-door testimony, his attorney took breaks to confer via telephone with the White House counsel’s office to clarify what questions could be answered and came back with the same guidance: Bannon could not discuss any activities related to the transition or his tenure in the White House.
“All shots were called by the White House,” says one source familiar with the proceedings.
Publicly, of course, White House officials and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyers have touted the administration’s willingness to cooperate with the ongoing probes.
How stupid does the Trump Administration think we are? Hopefully Robert Mueller will get to the bottom of what happened and hold the thugs in the Trump Administration accountable.
