NBC News tells us:
“House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings is giving the White House a final chance to “voluntarily” comply with his investigation into the use of private email accounts by Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and other White House officials before resorting to “alternative means” to obtain the information.
“In a letter sent Thursday to White House counsel Pat Cipollone, Cummings accused the White House of “obstructing” his committee’s work and called the officials’ practices a potential violation of federal records laws.
“The letter is part of an initial strategy by the Maryland Democrat to use his powers as the new chairman to pursue lines of inquiry that have had past bipartisan support, according to committee aides. In March 2017, then-Republican Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz joined Cummings on a letter to the White House requesting information on any use of non-official email accounts being used by its officials.”
Jar-Jar Vanka landed their butts in a seat in the White House that haters like me say that grifters like them are utterly unqualified to hold. So how do they prove us haters wrong? They conduct official business over private e-mail and messaging apps like WhatsApp, including corresponding with a middle eastern despot who ordered the deboning of a US resident and WaPo columnist.
And of course the affair is delightful because Jar-Jar Vanka’s whole reason they are in this mess is because Comrade Prznint Daddy was elected by campaigning on BUT HER EMAILS! with our complicit failed media singing in the chorus.
And let us not forget that the only reason these idiotic national security risks have a TOP SECRET clearance is because essentially they are Veruca Salt, and Prznint Stupid always gives The First Shady whatever she wants.
But wait! There’s more!
“In his letter, Cummings also singled out former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland, questioning whether they preserved documents related to a proposal to transfer nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia. That proposal is under investigation by Cummings’ committee, which is looking into information from whistleblowers who have said they witnessed “abnormal acts” within the Trump National Security Council involving senior White House officials who were pushing the plan.
“The committee found that McFarland used an AOL account to discuss the effort pushed by Trump friend Tom Barrack. It cites a Feb. 6, 2017, email between McFarland and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.”
AOL. They discussed selling nuclear tech to the Saudis over the infinitely hacked AOL network. Jeebus, some people.
