Skip to comments.About Time: House Judiciary Committee Targets Ex-CIA Chief John Brennan For Testimony
Posted on 07/22/2018 9:07:50 AM PDT by Proud White Trump Supporter
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said Sunday in a Fox News appearance his Committee is seeking testimony from former CIA Director, John Brennan.
We have lots of questions for John Brennan and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview. This is an extremely disturbing thing to see both he and James Comey, supposedly impartial government officials carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement, express the kind of extreme bias that theyve shown now, which I think reflects quite accurately on what they were doing back in 2016, Goodlatte said.

Brennan has opened his big mouth to lacerate Trump once too often.......its time he paid the price.
They will get nothing out of Brennan....he is stone cold hard core deep stater and probably a psychopath.....
But he does have a nasty temper at times as he has shown in his television gig. Trigger him and get out the popcorn!
Must watch t.v.
Both Brennan and Comey deserve matching cells at Leavenworth.
Exactly and the Democrats will be as easy a CNN appearance.
I don’t think I could stand looking at the fugly POS for any length of time. The evil just flows from him.
Would that we were not too “civilized” for such.
Looks very efficient for our needs.
I hope they ask him about his support of Communist Party USA, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc.
Let’s not get excited — NOTHING is going to happen to these three.
I want to know why and how this Communist, Muzzie Traitor maintains a top level security clearance.
I find this fact to be disturbing and wholly unacceptable.
Congress has ALL the power in washington, the executive and judicial branch operate according to the whims of CONGRESS!
TITLE 2—THE CONGRESS
CHAPTER 6—CONGRESSIONAL AND COMMITTEE PROCEDURE; INVESTIGATIONS
Sec. 193. Privilege of witnesses
No witness is privileged to refuse to testify to any fact, or to produce any paper, respecting which he shall be examined
by either House of Congress, or by any joint committee established by a joint or concurrent resolution of the two Houses
of Congress, or by any committee of either House, upon the ground that his testimony to such fact or his production of
such paper may tend to disgrace him or otherwise render him infamous.”
Simply look up Hinds Precedents, especially chapters 53 and 51, and Cannon’s Precedents, especially chapters 184-185.
You’ll find numerous detailed cases of Congress asserting its power, arresting people, holding them until they agreed to
answer questions, and then releasing them. Some of these people did not refuse to appear, but simply failed to
satisfactorily answer questions.
Congress can Remove the President
Congress can remove the head of every executive agency Congress can remove ALL of their employees
Congress can Abolish every agency they so choose
Congress can remove EVERY JUDGE IN AMERICA, including every supreme court justice.
Congress can abolish every federal court except the supreme Court
Congress can decide which cases the Judicial Branch can hear and decide
CONGRESS can Imprison ANYONE they want for any reason they so desire for as long as they wish. EXCEPT The President and
Congress can declare WAR
No other governing body has even 10% of the power CONGRESS has!!
CONGRESS IS ALLOWING ALL OF IT!!!
Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States
and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)
If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or
President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.
Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.
Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of
time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of
Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

 Anderson v. Dunn - 19 U.S. 204 - And, as to the distance to which the process might reach, it is very clear that
there exists no reason for confining its operation to the limits of the District of Columbia; after passing those limits,
we know no bounds that can be prescribed to its range but those of the United States.

In 1857, a New York Times reporter refused to say which members of Congress had asked him to get them bribes (protecting
his “sources” just as various Judith Millers today protect the people who feed them proven lies that costs thousands of
lives), so Congress locked him up until he answered and then banned him from Congress.
In 1924 an oil executive appeared but refused to answer certain questions, so the Senate held — literally held — him in
contempt. Senator Thomas Walsh of Montana argued that this question of contempt was of the gravest importance, and that it
involved “the very life of the effective existence of the House of Representatives of the United States and of the Senate
of the United States.” The matter was taken to court, and the witness fined and imprisoned.
These congressional hearings are often just political theater, but if anyone needs a public whipping, its the treasonous, treacherous CIA spook Brennan.
Great! And there then will come the indefatigable Trey Gowdy - cuckold extraordinaire - to declare “Nothing to see here. Move along, peasants.”
You just know that for people to survive and gain power at the FBI and CIA they have to be collecting information on those they compete against. I'm sure people are afraid of the info Brennan has.
