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?

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.

Watch:

“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
