Draggingtree Posted July 27, 2014 Share Posted July 27, 2014 : July 27, 2014 Eleanor Holmes Norton: 'You don't have a right to know' what's going on at the White House By Rick Moran Rep.

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 Just an old fool making a fool of herself Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
