What for? All Don Jr. need do is tell them where to go, using his choice from the long list of racist and anti-Semitic epithets collected from Czech playmates during blessed childhood summers not far from Prague. Dad will pardon him no matter what.

The only inquiry that matters is Mueller's. The rest are directly controlled by Republicans.

Mueller is investigating this. He has full powers of subpoena and prosecution. Why did the Republican House and Senate get involved?

From what I recall, they're two separate investigations. The Senate Judiciary Committee is looking into Russia's interference with our elections, while Mueller is primarily focused on whether or not the GOP and Trump campaign colluded with Russia to swing the election in their favor.

I know it seems like splitting hairs, and there's considerable overlap, but I think the general consensus is it's important to have two separate investigations to see what matches up.

Donnie Half Scoop is still on the hook, even when this is done.

No. To eat into the finite amount of time people have to respond to Mueller. To tie up people and resources and keep them away from Mueller. With an eye towards granting immunity for testimony before Congress.

It's more than likely a windsock so that Half Scoop's attorneys know what to prepare for. Many of the members of the Judiciary Committee have at least a half-informed idea of where Mueller's investigation is headed. I fully expect at least half of the questions directed at Harkonnen Jr. to foreshadow many of Mueller's lines of investigation, were the inquiry to be made public and the eventual report released by Mueller to be compared.

Having seen similar tactics when investigating corrupt deputies, I can only imagine it would be even more blatant now that the GOP realizes they can pretty much run amok without consequence for at least 2 years.

Although D2s might pardon him ahead of it, you can be indicted and convicted for lying to congress even if not under oath 18 U.S.C 1001 which states:

Nothing matters anymore

We live in a world of make believe where a man can sell his soul to another nation and no one will lift a finger

Embrace the darkness. The investigation will neither be made public or acted upon. The long dark night of the id of american politics is falling.

I feel like not to interfere but to research plausable deniability angles on the parallel investigation(s) findings.  Certainly to get ahead of the independent investigation.

But I never feel like I know with these guys.  Republican investigations tend to just let showboaters bray on TV forever.

Lying under oath is perjury and that's extra illegal.

But lying to congress in normal testimony is still AIUI illegal. Otherwise why waste time if there is zero penalty for false or misleading testimony?

Sounds like it's not going to be on CSPAN. No gotcha moments for Junior and he can take as long as he likes to think up an answer, but all the public sees (if anything) is text.
 
2017-08-30 07:02:08 AM  
My take: He's probably been instructed to lie his ass off to contradict the true investigation, so conservatives can say "That's not what he told Congress!"

I wonder what the Vegas odds are for Lil' Donnie to get mad (or just stay stupid) and say anything to imply his Daddy is complicit, or whine like a little baby with a silver spoon still stuck up his ass.

An interesting point was made in a Vox article yesterday: anyone Trump pardons will not be able to take the 5th during future testimony, because the pardon protects them from prosecution.

I dunno. Half Scoop definitely brought a lot more heat on Two Scoops by flapping his gums about the Russia meeting. So a pardon might be doubtful, especially if they start bringing charges and a plea deal (you know like hell Half Scoop would be singing like a nightingale for the feds the moment prison becomes a possibility). Probably a good chance he's gotten himself written out of daddy's will at this point.

They can still refuse to testify. They can still lie. Whether they'd get prosecuted for that or not is another matter. But they'd still be pardoned for any crimes included in the scope of the pardon, so they'd be way ahead of where they are now even if they still refuse to testify.

I would think that protection would apply only to charges they'd already been convicted of. They could still be charged for newly revealed transgressions.
