Ooooooh we’ve moved from executive privilege to “absolute immunity.” Fantasy Law looks fun, maybe I’ll teach it next semester https://t.co/WBVf90Rn1a
Via an official working on the impeachment inquiry: "This morning, one minute before his scheduled deposition was to start, Mr. Mulvaney’s outside counsel informed us that his client had been directed by the White House not to comply ...and asserted 'absolute immunity'"
My Twitter Law degree tells me that “absolute immunity” is the third-greatest amount of immunity, behind only “unlimited immunity” and “I’m Britney, bitch.” https://t.co/OHhrGQZBMm
What LEGAL fresh hell is this??
*There is no law that says that absolute immunity is conferred to Presidential advisers to block them from appearing pursuant to a Congressional subpoena.* https://t.co/rQHFtOcveE
"Absolute immunity" was practically laughed out of court this week.
When will everyone wake up and realize that the “absolute immunity” all of these witnesses are claiming in the inquiry means that we have already shredded the Constitution and elected a King?
Mick Mulvaney's outside counsel informed House investigators "one minute" before his scheduled deposition that he would "not to comply with the duly authorized subpoena and asserted 'absolute immunity'."
JUST IN: Mulvaney defies House subpoena, cites absolute immunity "one minute" before deposition....😆
Mick Mulvaney defied a subpoena for his testimony in the impeachment probe at the last minute today, saying the White House directed him not to comply. His lawyers informed House investigators of this “one minute” before his scheduled deposition.
This morning, *1 minute* before his scheduled deposition was to start, Mulvaney’s outside counsel told the House committees he'd been directed by the WH not to comply with their subpoena & that it had asserted “absolute immunity" per an official working on the impeachment inquiry
PS3/ And he's surrounded by sycophants willing to flout rule of law by pushing a not just discredited but *fantastical* theory of "absolute immunity"—a thing that doesn't exist. He couldn't be in a more powerful position, or House Dems (for being in the majority) in a weaker one.
Does 'absolute immunity' include the flu virus or is it just another 'made up' Trump administration lie? @MickMulvaneyOMB
should be ashamed, consider his oath TO THE COUNTRY and not the POTUS and if he chooses not to appear then he should RESIGN. Monday is fine with me.
Mick Mulvaney informed House investigators "one minute" before his scheduled deposition that he would not to comply with the duly authorized subpoena and asserted "absolute immunity."
Ha! Tomorrow Trump will throw this whole thing onto him and fire him.
Absolute immunity was just shot down by the judge in the Mazars financial records case.
This is a spurious defense, and Mulvaney's lawyer knows it.
He should immediately be cited for inherent contempt of Congress.
There is no such thing as "absolute immunity."
Mick Mulvaney already admitted #TrumpBribed Ukriane in public.
This is blatant obstruction of justice. #FridayThoughts https://t.co/BV9TX9jycL
Today Mick Mulvaney asserted “absolute immunity.”
"Absolute immunity is a form of legal immunity for gov't officials that confers immunity from prosecution so long as they are acting within the scope of their duties."
He's not being prosecuted, so how does this apply to him? https://t.co/d3ofILSiEa
Of course he did...
Now arrest his mousey little weasel azz and get on with things....
Hey Mulvaney 🖕 you, you POS

“‘Absolute immunity’ eh? Since that isn’t a thing, how about ‘you’ll absolutely be arrested’”
, how about you put the “poena” back in “subpoena”?

🔻Lock him up and fine the hell out of him.
🔻America has had enough of this a lawless administration!
well Mick Mulvaney just declared “absolute immunity” and I don’t know who has the stronger legal ground.
It would be like, 'God said no one can touch you, for you have absolute immunity!' 👑⚡️🛡️
He must have gone to CVS and gotten the free absolute immunity vaccine.
I assert absolute immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella.
What the fuck is Absolute Immunity???
