White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said in an interview Wednesday he was caught off guard by the news of the subpoena and only found out when news reports broke. But people familiar with the matter say that’s more a reflection on Mulvaney’s role in the West Wing. As CNN’s Jeremy Herb reported, the subpoena was issued two weeks ago, and sources say the president was aware of it. [CNN]

Trump’s hit a new level of manic.
The day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell bellowed “case closed,” we learn Senator Richard Burr issued a subpoena for Donald Trump, Jr. two weeks ago.

Republicans get time to
think about what Trump’s blanket denial to Congress means for our democratic republic.

Mitch McConnell was too busy sucking up to the guy in the White House to be interested in national security matters.
The Trump family continues to put our country in danger.
