The NYT tests out a new Trump attack . . . and after 8 years of Obama, the NYT discovers “unprecedented obstruction” of Congressional Oversight.
The NYT editorial board is in high dudgeon. Apparently, “Donald Trump Shows a New Level of Contempt for Congress.” Many presidents,” the NYT editors tell us, “have resisted congressional demands for testimony and documents. But not quite like Mr. Trump.” Really? Are they high? Or did the eight years of the Obama administration simply not count?
So what exactly has Trump done, . . . besides fully complying with a two-year fishing expedition for criminality that was the worst political dirty trick in our nation’s history. According to the NYT:
Mr. Trump’s top immigration adviser, Stephen Miller, has declined an invitation to discuss immigration policy;
Stephen Miller is not an agency head who would normally be subject to a subpoena over public policy. So how is his declining an “invitation” that he is free to accept or decline without recourse in any way obstructing Congress?
