TSA Keeps Docs From Federal Investigators, Chaffetz Threatens With Subpoena

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents check-in passengers at JFK. REUTERS/Brendan McDermidHouse Committee On Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) Chairman Jason Chaffetz threatened to subpoena the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Thursday for documents the agency refuses to turn over to federal investigators probing whistleblower retaliation.

The Utah Republican was taken aback when Acting TSA Administrator Huban Gowadia said unwritten guidance from the Department of Homeland Security permits her agency to withhold the documents under the attorney-client privilege.

“Wait a second,” Chaffetz said. “You just make this up, it’s not in writing?”

“You have a week from Friday, OK?” Chaffetz told Gowadia later. “A week from Friday, or I issue a subpoena. And guess what? I don’t need a committee vote. I don’t need to go ask a judge. I can do it myself, and I’m telling you here on national television, you will get a subpoena for that information.”

Why is Chaffetz threatening? Just do it! Stop with the waiting...just do it!

Forrest,

I completely agree... we have seen to many threats and not enough action. That's what gets me, when watching Gowdy... do something Gowdy, Chaffetz!  

The TSA is part of the demonRAT criminal regime.

Trump should have already put them on notice.  

TSA was another Government Knee jerk from 911 just like the Gun Control knee jerks when there is a incident involving a fire arm.

Who works for who???

I'm pretty sure that the TSA is under the realm of the Fed Gov. 

If they don't turn over EVERYTHING as soon as asked. FIRE THEM ALL. This business of denying everything from congress has to stop and stop NOW. Who is in charge?????

A week gives them time to scrub the documents

Jason Chaffetz threatening.  Again?  I'm sure they're quaking in their boots.  He needs to grow a spine and actually take action.  Threats mean nothing.

As usual, Chaffetz HUFFS and PUFFS.  Wanna bet he DOESN'T get the demanded documents, YET DOES NOTHING!  The only time Chaffetz takes any action, its when opposing fellow REPUBLICANS!

Subpoena my butt !! arrest warrents !!!!!!!!.

Great Chaffetz, why don't you inform them so they have time to destroy them?

What the hell is this CRAP with threatening to subpoena, subpoenas....?   Why don't they just show up in the offices or homes of wherever with subpoena in-hand, and DO IT?   Why give them a heads-up and time to destroy evidence?  HOW STUPID IS THAT?

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
