Unreal! Unbelievable! But apparently, we are at the point in our nation’s history where even the silliest-sounding circumstances sometimes become reality.
And Nancy Pelosi’s latest wacky decision is right in that category — because Breitbart News reported on Friday that Pelosi and the Dems have now subpoenaed Barron Trump’s testimony regarding “Russian collusion and obstruction.”
The news broke just as President Trump was golfing a perfect game — a game Democrats seemed determined to ruin by choosing that time to announce that they wanted to question the President’s 11-year-old son.
“He spends a lot of time close to his father,” Pelosi said at a press conference. “We firmly believe that he knows something, and we’re going to find out what that something is.”
Asked if this action was “completely necessary” by Gateway Pundit correspondent Julian Rasisberger, Charles Schumer defended the subpoena. “I don’t care who we have to squeeze, as long as we end up making juice,” he said. “Barron Trump had to have witnessed at least some of his father’s inappropriate actions with the Russians.”
The Justice Department released a statement urging Democrats to reconsider.
“Not only is this a private citizen, but a child,” a letter from William Barr reads. “If you insist on pursuing this course of action, the Justice Department will have no choice but to oppose you.”
The Justice Department has not issued a letter threatening legal opposition to a member of the Senate since 1962 when Massachusetts Democrat Marcus Rosenberg demanded the release of his parents, who were convicted Soviet spies.
Rosenberg threatened to subpoena the families of FBI agents, but was shut down after a Supreme Court ruling that “spite subpoenas” were illegal. Marcus Rosenberg spent three months in prison for “trying to subvert the Democratic process.”
Pelosi is moving dangerously close to Rosenberg territory. Maybe she’d like to spend some time behind bars.
