The DOJ official Bruce Ohr that was demoted for not disclosing his meeting with Fusion GPS, canceled he senate committee testimony at the last minute today.

Bruce Ohr, who appears to be involved in a possible plot to create a Russian investigation against Trump in case he won the election doesn't seem to want to answer any questions, questions congress, and the American people have a right to know.

It's quite telling that Andrew McCabe, and now Bruce Ohr have both canceled their appointments to provide testimony at congressional hearings.

Congress has made it clear, if they don't show, they will be subpoenaed.

You better get your stories straight, you can't duck congress forever.

I'm sure they actually believe they CAN "duck congress".

Honestly -
is anyone really "shocked" that these Swamp Creatures are no shows at open Congressional Hearings?

I'm pretty sure this was a closed session, so Bruce Ohr must be very desperate to not answer questions. Why not testify in a closed session unless you have something to hide?

Why did Bruce Ohr cancel his appointment to testify ? We can only speculate at this point.

Congress has been a disappoint in everything but theatrics. Slow to act but the show must go on. The goal to expose the truth and get to the bottom of whatever is there, on any issue, is leaving them at the bottom in public opinion on being effective. The very questions that the public wants to know most, triggers a close door hearing where we're not allowed entry.
After the closed door meetings the sideshow grandstanding politicians go straight to the cameras working to get national attention and name recognition to improve their reelection chances. Depending on what party they belong too we hear different versions of the play out of our sight. We paid ticket prices for the play we were not directly allowed to see. We paid for the entire production.

Now we have to decide which politician is giving us the truth that is so sacred we're not allowed to get near it. Trust us they say. This was only the opening act and we will know more after the final act and the curtain comes down. When their interview is over they go their marry way leaking the version to media that helps them or their party the most politically.

Andrew McCabe, being a no show before, is set to testify 12/19/2017. As I remember it, its an open hearing and those are wonderful. He will get the chance to withhold information for the usual reasons. Wrong setting ( needs to be done in a closed door hearing ), national security, ongoing investigation by one or more existing agency's. Maybe even take the fifth.

Having sand kicked in their face for a year they might get a spine and charge people with contempt of congress. Something many of us have had for years. Then we have to rely on the FBI and DOJ to charge and prosecute themselves. Amazing !!! The play turns out to be a three ring circus.

One thing we can be sure of, the men of integrity, will get to the bottom of it and it turns out it's our bottom they really want to focus on and drive a tent peg in.

Anyone who believes that (((America))) is "the land of the free and the home of the brave," "a land of liberty," "a land of due process," "a nation devoted to justice," "a nation with a government of, for, and by the people," a "constitutional republic," or a "nation of laws, not of men" has not been paying attention for the last 240 years or so....

For the sake of argument, lets say that is all true in some degree.
It still the best country on earth. It says more about the corrupt conditions, problems of other countries and their systems of rule than it does about the USA. Many under dictators, socialism and communism that have killed tens of millions wholesale through starvation and murder.

America will be the best country for as long as we have the freedom to speak our minds and do business without too many roadblocks being put in our way. But once that ends (and I think it will), I can think of any number of countries in Europe that are at least as good.
