Dem Rep: ‘You Don’t Have a Right to Know Everything’ Going On In Government

It appears that Democrat Eleanor Holmes Norton, the non-voting Congressional delegate for Washington, D.C., has a “slightly” different understanding of the separation of powers than do most of us. Speaking during a Congressional hearing Friday on the White House decision to ignore a House subpoena of David Simas, Obama’s director of the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach, Norton admonished her Republican colleagues with the following statement: “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.”

Do you agree?
