On this day in 1974, Richard Nixon refused to provide materials to the Senate Watergate Committee, which it had subpoenaed.

Nixon resigned two weeks later.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on a House Judiciary Committee hearing about the attorney general’s handling of the special counsel’s Russia report (all times local):
President Donald Trump is signaling he will not allow aides, including former White House counsel Don McGahn, to testify before Congress, opening another front in the showdown between his administration and lawmakers.
Trump says in an interview with Fox News: “They’ve testified for many hours, all of them. I would say, it’s done.”
Democrats on Capitol Hill want McGahn and other key witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe to testify, but White House lawyer Emmet Flood says Trump is reserving the right to assert executive privilege in blocking their testimony.

NEWSWEEK-Donald Trump Could Face Criminal Charges If He Loses 2020 Election, Prosecutors in Michael Cohen Case Believe: Report.
BLOOMBERG-The Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York isn’t done digging into the Trump Organization.
Trump supporters will blame Hillary, Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Michael Cohen, Porn Star, and everyone else but TRUMP himself.
Supporters criticize every day on every blog site, each Politician, and act like they are part of the DEFENSE team of Trump. He can do no wrong. However, the end is near. Trump or his supporters can not stop the inevitable conclusion coming soon. They will still have plenty to say even if Trump is brought down to his knees in total disgrace.
From clerks, CEO'S, to administrators, to Principles of schools. They are just as intelligent as the young immature adults who are discriminating, always tough talking with their postings, and bullying many on the internet. But surprise -surprise what will they say when that moment comes soon. Does it matter?
What really matters is that our Country gets back on track. What matters is to elect a President who is a patriot, and puts our citizens first again. To show the World we have righted the wrong. To bring stability back into our Politics and Policy's.
THE WORST PRESIDENT IN OUR HISTORY TO DATE. NO DENNYING THAT.
