Outrageous That Democrats Would Even Try to Subpoena Trump’s Interpreter

We are barely a week into Democrat control of Congress, and one committee chairman is already signaling to the media that he will violate the Constitution’s separation of powers clause (and inevitably run up against Executive Privilege) in an attempt to play to his party’s liberal base.

In a tweet this weekend, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested that he would be willing to subpoena the interpreter who sat in on private meetings between President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

“Last year, we sought to obtain the interpreter’s notes or testimony, from the private meeting between Trump and Putin,” Schiff wrote. “The Republicans on our committee voted us down. Will they join us now? Shouldn’t we find out whether our president is really putting ‘America first?’”

This kind of rhetoric might sound good to the moonbats who follow people like Schiff on Twitter, but it runs afoul of the law. Republicans were absolutely right to vote down such an egregious, unconstitutional proposal, seeing as how an interpreter in this context is an extension of the President himself. Congress has no right under the Constitution to subpoena the President of the United States, and that would naturally extend to someone whose only purpose is to speak on behalf of the president. You might as well suggest putting out a subpoena for Trump’s private journal. It’s ludicrous and illegal.

Democrats have a gleam in their eye after a Washington Post story which reported that Trump confiscated his interpreter’s notes after meeting with Putin in Hamburg. This, they feel, gives them new license to go after the interpreter, her testimony, and her notes from the meeting. Even though, if you believe this story, she doesn’t have them anymore?

“Six months ago, @RepAdamSchiff and I tried to subpoena the interpreter from the Trump-Putin meeting. The GOP blocked us. We knew then something was fishy. We now know Trump took the notes. Lost time and more damage to our democracy is the cost of GOP obstruction,” tweeted Rep. Eric Swalwell. “Destruction of evidence is consciousness of guilt. At this point please show me evidence that @realDonaldTrump is not working for Russia.”

The evidence that Trump is not working for Russia? Gee, Mr. Swalwell, surely you understand that’s not how the justice system works, right? Or are you too busy fantasizing about nuking the United States that you forgot that the burden of evidence lies with the accuser?

It’s still not clear how much of this is supposed to be taken seriously and how much of it is just meant for the TV cameras and the Twitter twits, but either way, it’s a dark omen for the months to come.
