    Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) opened the door on Thursday to subpoenaing a cadre of top Republican targets as part of his panel’s oversight work. Pressed if he would issue subpoenas for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), former Vice President Biden or his son Hunter Biden or the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry, Johnson stressed that he was still trying to collect information. “I don’t really want to make news on your program because I’m working with Senator Grassley’s staff, but we’re having meetings in terms of what our...

    The Justice Department opened a new front in the legal battle between congressional impeachment investigators and the White House on Tuesday by announcing that Congress must allow government attorneys to accompany executive branch witnesses who testify about President Donald Trump's relations with Ukraine. In a newly-released memo, the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel said “the assistance of agency counsel” is needed because testimony has the potential to disclose information “protected by executive privilege.” The House Intelligence Committee, which has taken the lead on the impeachment inquiry, has heard from a number of witnesses whose personal lawyers have been allowed...
  • Subpoenas Not Valid Since There Is No Impeachment Inquiry

    The U.S. House can review the already-existing evidence for impeachment, such as in a debate on a vote for impeachment. But they cannot try to unearth grounds for impeachment that they do not already have Here’s some free legal advice: Trump Administration officials should reject the recent subpoenas by the House of Representatives Democrats. They read like political speeches, intended to influence public discussion, not like legal subpoenas. To answer these “when did you stop violating the law?” letters is to buy into and endorse their false premise. If a Trump official were my client, I would recommend a short,...

    Wait long enough, and everything comes around again. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), one of the wokest womyn in the world, has this week blazed bold new trails by calling for the revival of not one, but two tried-and-true practices that have inexplicably fallen into neglect in American politics: Jim Crow segregation laws and the arrest of one’s political opponents. This brave leader said in a Detroit speech that if Trump Cabinet members failed to comply with congressional subpoenas, “they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do...

    The Trump administration's Justice Department has again taken President Donald Trump's side in a fight between him -- as a private citizen -- and the US House of Representatives over subpoenas for his personal financial records. The Justice Department argues the two banks shouldn't have to hand over the subpoenaed information and accuses lawmakers of not taking the correct steps to seek the documents.

    (WASHINGTON) — The House Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to authorize subpoenas for 12 people mentioned in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, including President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The panel also voted to authorize subpoenas for documents and testimony related to Trump’s handling of immigration, including on the separation of migrant families at the southern border. The resolution authorizes an investigation into whether there have been any discussions of Trump offering pardons to Homeland Security officials who work on immigration issues. Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York will make the final decision about...

    House Judiciary Committee Democrats announced Tuesday that they plan to authorize subpoenas later this week for a dozen individuals connected to President Trump as part of the panel’s escalating probe into obstruction of justice, public corruption and other alleged abuses by the president. The list of targets includes Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner as well as former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his old deputy Rod Rosenstein. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that the panel is moving forward with “efforts to request information from critical witnesses as part of our ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption, and abuse of power...

    Full title: 9 Times The Obama Administration Fought Subpoenas or Blocked Officials from Testifying Before Congress After the long and thorough, and, of course, incredibly expensive Mueller investigation, Democrats were left distraught over a lack of any crime to justify going forward with impeachment. In the wake of the Mueller report, they’ve since promised new investigations in the hopes of finding some crime to justify putting the country through a process that most don’t want us to go through just because Democrats haven’t gotten over the 2016 election. In recent weeks, stories about subpoenas being challenged and Trump officials being...

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., on Tuesday subpoenaed former White House officials Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson to testify before his committee and provide documents related to a sweeping probe of figures in President Donald Trump’s orbit. Donaldson was chief of staff to former White House counsel Don McGahn, who on Tuesday defied the Judiciary panel’s subpoena to testify about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Hicks is the former White House communications director. Both Hicks and Donaldson were ordered to produce the requested documents to the committee by June 4. Hicks’ subpoena sets a June 19 date for...

    It’s an all-out war. Okay—that was the case after the 2016 election, but now we’re seeing repetitive smackdowns of subpoenas issued by Democrats by the Trump administration. They’re all politically motivated. Trump hasn’t committed a crime. The report on Russian collusion isn’t conclusive on obstruction because the evidence is not sufficient, as deemed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General William Barr, and it totally kills the narrative that the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin in the 2016 election. That point is dead, like three shots to the head dead. There was no evidence of this myth...

    In a suit filed on Monday, the president and his family members argue that the Democrat-controlled House committee leaders who issued subpoenas engaged in a broad overreach. President Trump, his three eldest children and his private company filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against Deutsche Bank and Capital One, in a bid to prevent the banks from responding to congressional subpoenas. In the suit, filed in federal court in Manhattan, the president and his family members argue that the Democratic House committee leaders who issued the subpoenas engaged in a broad overreach. “This case involves congressional subpoenas that have no...

    The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday will vote on a resolution that would authorize subpoenas relating to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. If passed, the Committee would subpoena President Donald Trump's former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, former Communications Director Hope Hicks, former White House Counsel Don McGahn, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and McGhan's former Chief of Staff Ann Donaldson, the Daily Mail reported. The decision comes after House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and five other Democratic Committee Chairmen sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr formally requesting the full Mueller report. "Each of our committees...

    Defend this House: While there’s no reliable evidence that a Democratic “blue wave” will sweep Republicans out of power in the House during the midterms, historically speaking the party in power does lose some seats. But if you trust certain polling data, Democrats are said to be leading in generic balloting over Republicans — which doesn’t make sense given the fact that in our partisan times, if the Democratic agenda of hate and socialism was a winner nationally, they’d already have control of the House. Nevertheless, there are plenty of reasons why Republicans must flock to the polls to defend...

    It has come to my attention that "anyone over the age of 18 who is not a party to the case" can serve a federal subpoena. Now I am certain that the US Marshalls Service is very busy nowadays and could use a hand, and some extra funding. Here is the plan: With the blessing of the Marshalls Service some well meaning Americans will offer a lottery at $20.00 a ticket, no limits, with the proceeds going to the Marshalls Service. The winner of the lottery would get to serve Hillary Clinton her subpoena. (must be 18 to enter)

    President Trump ratcheted up his attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Saturday, tweeting that Sessions was "scared stiff" and "Missing in Action" in defending him amid special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Trump slammed Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer at the center of the Trump dossier scandal, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) and once again slammed Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt." "The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife,...

    Twitter sent out notices to several investigative reporters and media outlets last week including: Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Kim DotCom, Cassandra Fairbanks, Roger Stone, Matt Couch and The Gateway Pundit. The liberal and Democrat-connected attorneys for Aaron Rich are demanding Twitter turn over all direct messages from these accounts to Aarron Rich’s attorneys. Aaron is the brother of Seth Rich, the DNC operative who was murdered mysteriously in the summer of 2016. There have been no leads to the murder of Seth Rich. Aaron Rich is suing conservative activists and media outlets for allegedly spreading conspiracy theories about the slain staffer....

    Sources tell The Daily Caller several FBI agents want congressional subpoenas to testify about the agency’s problems. The sources claim there is a demand within the agency to prosecute former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. They also say the bureau has become totally politicized. The subpoenas are desired by the FBI agents because it requires Congress to pay for their legal fees and protects them from agency retribution. Many agents in the FBI want Congress to subpoena them so they can reveal problems caused by former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, three people in...
  • Robert Mueller files request for 70 blank subpoenas in Paul Manafort’s Virginia case

    Special counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday filed a request for 70 blank subpoenas in the Eastern District of Virginia, where former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The two-page filing reveals little, but says that that each subpoena recipient must appear in the Alexandria, Va., courthouse on July 10 to testify in the case. The 70 blank subpoenas amount to 35 total possible subpoenas — in each case, a subpoena is needed for the witness and another is needed for the defense. Court documents filed in April show that Mueller's team was pushing to subpoena 35 witnesses in the trial.

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley announced Wednesday plans to subpoena two senior FBI officials to question them about former FBI Director James Comey, opening the door for even more incriminating information to be uncovered about him. “We’ve got subpoenas at the Senate counsel office,” Grassley told CNN Wednesday, referencing the office responsible for drafting subpoenas. “When we get done there, I’m gonna have to consult with Sen. Feinstein.” The top ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Diane Feinstein, has been working with Grassley to investigate President Donald Trump’s purported connections to Russia, as well as his termination...

    Following a report yesterday on the lack of information sharing between the House, Senate, and special counsel probes into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday submitted a formal subpoena to the Justice department and FBI for documents in the Trump dossier they have been unable to obtain. The committee reportedly submitted the subpoenas back on Aug. 24, giving the Justice Department and FBI until last Friday, Sep. 1, to turn over the information. Now that the two bodies have not been forthcoming with the documents requested, the committee has given them an extension until...
