House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Democrats for their consistent calls to subpoena anyone close to President Donald Trump on Sunday, saying they are not actually focused on fixing problems.
“This is a time that the country wants to move forward. We want to move forward. We’ve got health care, we’ve got trade, we’ve got a crisis on our border. The Democrats are more interested in subpoenas than solutions,” McCarthy said on “Face the Nation.”
“Donald Trump Jr. has already testified for more than 27 hours,” McCarthy said. “If you want to bring him back in because something [Michael] Cohen has said when he is in jail for lying and talking about a meeting he wasn’t even in? No, I don’t think that’s right.”
McCarthy’s comments come as the Senate Judiciary Committee announced they sent a subpoena to Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, although he has already testified in front of the committee. Trump defended his son Thursday, as the committee nor Special Counsel Robert Mueller found Trump Jr. did anything wrong. (RELATED: Trump ‘Very Surprised’ By Senate Subpoena For Don Jr)
“I saw Richard Burr saying there was no collusion two or three weeks ago,” Trump said at a White House event. “I was very surprised to see my son, my son’s a very good person, works very hard. The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C.,” Trump continued.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler requested a number of documents from the White House on March 4 and sent letters seeking information from people and organizations close to Trump.
Nadler sent the requests to 81 groups, people and organizations, searching for constitutional abuses and corruption by Trump. Nadler said in March the requests for documents are to “begin investigations, to present the case to the American people about obstruction of justice, about corruption and abuse of power,” despite Mueller’s investigation.
Democrats and cable news pundits have said the Mueller report is a cover-up.
