Dems Call for Friday Testimony from Mulvaney, Setting up Another Showdown with White House

The Democrats are all bark and no bite, allowing the White House to simply ignore these requests at will. Mulvaney’s situation will likely be no different.

Once this impeachment fiasco is far behind us, a great many Americans will look back on this chapter of American history and realize just how poorly the Democrats played their hand.

That’s not to say that they had anything to write home about, but even when you’re bluffing you need to puff out your chest and let the world know that you came to play.  That simply has not happened during this “formal impeachment inquiry”, and the White House has taken advantage of that fact.

Numerous West Wing officials have refused to testify in front of several House committees as of late, with the Democrats resorting each time to one of their canned lines regarding an “obstruction” charge being added to their possible articles of impeachment…but that’s it.  The left has shown no willingness to employ their powers of contempt to compel witnesses to testify and, therefore, are simply not receiving the results that they had hoped for.

Their latest request from the White House will likely suffer a similar fate, given just how unwilling the left is to attempt enforcement.

House Democrats have called on White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to testify as part of their partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

“Based on evidence gathered in the impeachment inquiry and public reporting, we believe that you possess substantial first-hand knowledge and information relevant to the House’s impeachment inquiry,” House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-NY), and acting House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) stated in a letter to Mulvaney on Tuesday.

As of this writing, there has been no official statement from Mulvaney or the White House on this request.

Mulvaney was briefly the center of attention for the Democrats after a combative press conference in the White House devolved into mainstream media insinuations about a Ukrainian “quid pro quo” that would, allegedly, bolster the impeachment case being made by the Democrats.

That theory has yet to be proven.
