Bob Woodward: I think we have a governing crisis

Washington (CNN)The White House on Sunday decried Democratic-led congressional investigations, saying Democrats are refusing to abide by "rules and norms" that govern oversight authority as they issue subpoenas for documents the Trump administration refuses to hand over.


"There are rules and norms governing congressional oversight of the executive branch, and the Democrats simply refuse to abide by them,"

White House deputy press secretary Steve Groves said in a statement. "Democrats are demanding documents they know they have no legal right to see -- including confidential communications between the President and foreign leaders and grand jury information that cannot be disclosed under the law."

The White House, Groves said, "will not and cannot comply" with what he called "unlawful demands made by increasingly unhinged and politically-motivated Democrats."

2. "Rules and norms" are things the Republicans have NO business talking about.

They've been busy breaking those ever since they took office.

9. Exactly. CNN is amplifying this McConnell talking point.

And we're helping by quoting it!

8. Bad headline. Don't quote the lies of the liars.

Do not give Trump or the Republicans any oxygen when they lie. Don't repeat the lies!

Better headline:
"White House refuses the most standard oversight by House Democrats, flouting the Constitution."

I know CNN got it wrong. We shouldn't repeat the distortion. Post in GD instead?

14. I agree not to repeat the lies in public however,

how would I know what they are saying if I don`t read about it here? This is where I get most of my news and I like to know what nonsense they spew in case I hear it somewhere so I am prepared with a rebuttal.

15. There is a rule, I read about somewhere. Just 4 words..."Thou shalt not lie"

Mr. Trump and the White House does not follow that rule.

16. I prefer the West Point Honor Code

A cadet will not lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do.

All of which Trump does with impunity.
