Rep Maxine Waters, from the House floor as the debate on subpoena resolution continues: "The president said, and I quote, 'we are fighting all subpoenas and I don’t want people testifying.' Who does he think he is, a dictator?"
She continues "We are constitutionally entitled to review the documents as a coequal branch of government."

She is reminded by the floor leader that there should be no attacks on the character of the president.
Republican Rep. Debbie Lesko of Arizona, who will vote against the resolution, says it is disingenuous on its face.
"Democrats are trying to influence the 2020 election at taxpayer expense," she said.
15 minutes left to vote on HR 430. Only a simple majority is needed for passage.
All right, clock has wound down, lawmakers filing in to cast votes and we await the tabulation.
Insider secret about me, a lowly reporter, I get an intense adrenaline rush whenever I cover floor votes. Dont ask me why. I love covering a vote. Any vote. My palms actually sweat. A little pathetic, sure, but I am only human!
