Eleanor Holmes Norton: 'You don't have a right to know' what's going on at the White House


By Rick Moran

Rep. Elanor Holmes Norton, Washington, D.C.'s non voting delegate to Congress, has a novel definition of the separation of powers. Becoming exasperated at House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa's insistence that a subpoena to David Simas, director of the administration's Office of Political Strategy, should go forward, Holmes Norton dressed down Issa by claiming the Oversight Issa by claiming the Oversight Committee, which oversees the executive branch, didn't have the right to investigate the White House.

 

Washington Examiner:

 

"You don't have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government," Norton said Scissors-32x32.png
