House Judiciary approves subpoenas for 12 key witnesses, including Jared Kushner


By ANDREW DESIDERIO and KYLE CHENEY 07/11/2019 12:41 PM EDT Updated 07/11/2019 12:46 PM EDT

The House Judiciary Committee voted on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for 12 crucial witnesses as part of House Democrats’ ongoing investigations targeting President Donald Trump.

On a party-line vote, the committee empowered Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) to issue subpoenas to current and former Trump administration officials who were central figures in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s 22-month investigation of Russian contacts with the Trump campaign.

The subpoena list also includes Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, in addition to some of Mueller’s key witnesses: former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter.

The panel also authorized subpoenas for executives of American Media Inc., which was involved in hush-money payments to women who alleged that they had affairs with Trump. Nadler has not indicated when or whether he’ll issue the subpoenas.

1. That's nice

but what happens when each and every one of them declines to show?

Is there any recourse?

2. Of course there is recourse for not showing -- they will either ignore the subpoena, ask for

an extension and waste months deciding on a new date, or be sent a sternly worded letter that they'll line their bird cage with.

3. Those sternly worded letters

are the best liners, I hear.

7. Yes, that may

be the case. Forgot the marker. Oops, my bad.

To be fair, 99% of my posts should be marked with that.

There is a certain level of frustration in me this week...possibly reaching critical mass.

I think I need to just shut down and play video games mindlessly for a while. Fallout's nuclear wasteland is preferable to real life at this moment in time.

5. So why even bother, right? Either way, they just don't measure up, AMIRITE?

If they don't do it, they're NOT DOING THEIR JOB!!! WHY ARE THEY NOT EVEN SENDING OUT A SUBPOENA TO THESE CROOKS??

If they do it, then, well, they're still just useless.

Right?

4. And the bashing of Dems for doing something that's their job as "a sternly worded letter" begins

And if they didn't do it, they'd be bashed for "not doing something to get those crooks in for questioning!!"
