At least US Congressman Nadler apparently isn’t frightened of Trump, unlike Pelosi. Trump must have something big, bad and ugly on her, possibly related to her father or brother – both Mayors of Baltimore, Thomas d’Alesandro, Jr, and III. Maybe we need to ask why her family refused to marry Americans. Her father was born in America to Italian immigrants but married someone born in Italy and she married Paul Pelosi, whose parents were born in Italy. Since her family has such a keen allergy to non-Italians, then why are they here, rather than Italy? Was it because you have to be 100% Italian to be full mafia? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Made_man The United States is seriously in trouble, as she is third in the line of Presidential succession. At least we can still raise such questions in the United States. In some countries one cannot.

US House Judiciary Committee “Chairman Nadler Statement on White House Blocking Former White House Counsel Don McGahn from Testifying on Evidence of Obstruction of Justice by President Trump
May 20, 2019
Washington, D.C. –Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) issued the following statement in response to the White House directing former White House Counsel Donald F. McGahn II to defy a subpoena for his testimony tomorrow as part of the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into obstruction of justice, corruption, and abuses of power by President Trump and his associates

“The Mueller Report documents a shocking pattern of obstruction of justice.  The President acted again and again—perhaps criminally—to protect himself from federal law enforcement.  Don McGahn personally witnessed the most egregious of these acts.  President Trump knows this.  He clearly does not want the American people to hear firsthand about his alleged misconduct, and so he has attempted to block Mr. McGahn from speaking in public tomorrow.

“This move is just the latest act of obstruction from the White House that includes its blanket refusal to cooperate with this Committee.  It is also the latest example of this Administration’s disdain for law. This identical approach was rejected by a federal court in the Miers case, which held that even senior advisors to the President cannot simply refuse to appear in response to a congressional subpoena.  It is absurd for President Trump to claim privilege as to this witness’s testimony when that testimony was already described publicly in the Mueller Report.  Even more ridiculous is the extension of the privilege to cover events before and after Mr. McGahn’s service in the White House. 

“The Committee will convene as planned tomorrow morning, and Mr. McGahn is expected to appear as legally required.”

US Congressman Cicilline statement:
If Don McGahn does not testify tomorrow, it will be time to begin an impeachment inquiry of @realDonaldTrump.” (US Congressman Cicilline, May 20, 2019) https://archive.li/npuWd

Cicilline’s father represented mobsters. The fact that he is calling for impeachment and Pelosi isn’t, only serves to underline how ugly whatever Trump has on Pelosi must be. Trump’s mob connections are well known. His mentor, Roy Cohn, represented New York mob families.
