DHS/HOUSE OF REPS/IMMIGRATION/INVESTIGATIONS/PARDONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday [9-4-19] subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security for documents connected to President Donald Trump’s alleged offer to pardon officials who break the law while carrying out his immigration agenda. Trump has denied making such an offer, and his allies have reportedly claimed his closed-door comments — revealed in media reports — were jokes. But Democrats say they want to see the records from inside the department, particularly as the Judiciary Committee weighs the prospect of impeachment…Nadler said his panel will also hold hearings in the coming months related to the issue of pardons as it continues its sweeping investigation into possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuses of power by the president. The New York Democrat added that the ‘troubling pattern of obstruction of justice would represent a continuation of the misconduct identified in the Mueller report.’”
