    Corey Lewandowski defies Intel Committee on conversations with Trump and Trump Tower Russia meeting

    https://www.rawstory.com/2018/03/cor...ussia-meeting/

    During what was described as “tense” testimony to the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Lewandowski was said to have followed the pattern of other Trump campaign staff — like Hope Hicks and Steve Bannon — who have declined to answer questions about conversations with the then-candidate, even though events that occurred during the campaign are not covered by presidential executive privilege, according to reporters who spoke to lawmakers. ...

    Lewandowski leaves House Intel after roughly 3 hours, tells reporters he answered relevant questions.



    Schiff says Lewandowski refused to answer questions about conversations with Trump, the Trump Tower meeting and the firing of Comey, and that Dems have asked for a subpoena.
    lewandowski insists he was not instructed by the white house to refuse to answer questions the intel committee wanted answers to
    however, there does seem to be a pattern of non-responsiveness by lewandowski, hope kicks, and steve bannon to avoid answering direct questions about their involvements with tRump
    why would that be?
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    criticizing tRump in a book is like criticizing the amish on television

    Because answering questions from people with a political, rather than a legal, agenda is suicide.

    I suspect that the GOP leadership has told these people not to answer questions and the GOP who control these committees will refuse to subpoena them or to put them in jail for refusing to answer questions under subpoena. This has been going on since the start. When it comes to serious questions, all of the Trump have refused to answer.

    It is also illegal if you have been subpoenaed. The problem is that the GOP who controls these committees have gone along with allowing them not to answer.

    Probably a lot to that, and it's probably better for Mueller if these guys don't testify, and have it leaked, which should be assumed frankly. As long as he talks to Mueller, I'm not that worried/bothered. Besides the House investigation is a joke at this point. I don't care what their findings are - the HPSCI has taken a wrecking ball to its credibility, blame who you want for that.

    So the 4th Amendment goes out the window if you ever spoke to a Russian and now the 5th Amendment goes out the window if you got subpoenaed. For some people that kind of thing might seem a little vexing.

    There's an easy fix. The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has subpoena power to compel Lewandowski's testimony and documents. Thing is, he won't use it and the committee Democrats are spitting-nails furious about that.

    Why won't they answer questions? What are they hiding? It has to be something.
