No Coincidence: Nitwit Nadler Subpoenas Corey Lewandowski to Testify About Fake Obstruction Charges on Day Lewandowski to Appear with Trump at NH Rally Ahead of Possible Senate Bid

  • On Thursday, the House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former top White House aide Rick Dearborn for information “about their knowledge of potential obstruction of justice” by Trump ahead of Lewandowski’s possible Senate bid.
  • The subpoenas demand that the pair publicly testify on September 17 before the committee.
  • The subpoenas “come on the same day Lewandowski intends to appear alongside Trump at a campaign rally in New Hampshire, where Lewandowski has begun to openly consider a Senate campaign.”
  • Additionally, Lewandowski is “the first of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s most significant witnesses who had no formal role in the White House to be served with a subpoena by the Judiciary Committee as it considers whether to recommend articles of impeachment.”
  • This latest subpoena “will test the president’s ability to block him from cooperating, as he has with most other witnesses subpoenaed by Congress.”
  • According to the Mueller report’s findings, “Lewandowski described to him a directive from Trump that he tell then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he must constrain Mueller’s investigation or be fired.”
  • However, Lewandowski “asked Dearborn to deliver the message to Sessions instead, but Dearborn ultimately refused.”
  • During another incident detailed in the Mueller report, Trump “again asked Lewandowski to pressure Sessions to limit Mueller’s scope to future election interference attempts.”
  • Democratic Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement: “Corey Lewandowski and Rick Dearborn were prominently featured in the special counsel’s description of President Trump’s efforts to obstruct justice by directing then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire the special counsel, and then by ordering him to lie about it.”
  • Nadler added: “This will help the committee determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment against the president or other Article 1 remedies. No one is above the law.”
  • According to reports, “Lewandowski’s appearance at Trump’s rally follows a rash of concern among New Hampshire Republicans that a Trump-backed Senate bid by such a polarizing figure could jeopardize GOP chances to defeat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).”
