Justice Dept. to probe secret subpoena for Schiff's records on Trump's watch

Source: Los Angeles Times

The Justice Department's internal watchdog announced Friday it was launching an investigation into federal prosecutors' use of secret subpoenas to obtain records from Apple concerning two California lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee, their staff and family members.

The move came as top Democratic senators called on the Justice Department's inspector general to launch such a probe and for former President Trump’s attorneys general to testify before Congress about why prosecutors took such an aggressive investigative step.

The Democrats allege that the subpoenas of records related to Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin), were further evidence that the Trump administration engaged in abuses of power when targeting its political foes. The lawmakers targeted by the subpoenas, which were part of an investigation into the leak of classified material, are Democrats known for their vocal criticism of the Trump administration.

“The revelation that the Trump Justice Department secretly subpoenaed metadata of House Intelligence Committee Members and staff and their families, including a minor, is shocking,” according to a statement from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the chairman of the chamber's Judiciary Committee. "This appalling politicization of the Department of Justice by Donald Trump and his sycophants must be investigated immediately by both the DOJ Inspector General and Congress."

1. Is "Abuse Of Power" another federal crime to add to his list

of a zillion other crimes like Obstruction Of Justice, Starting a Ressurection, killing thousands with Covid, etc? If this doesn't get him locked up nothing will.


Just a short lkst of his crimes...

2. But, but, but...

Let's look forward, and respect the tradition...

What would it take to lock him up? Shooting someone on 5th Avenue?

4. Huh? The Justice Dept. is going to investigate its own actions?



Clean house first, fire all Chump appointees.
THEN - maybe - DoJ can proceed with a special investigation.
