Trump And His Administration Have Been Slapped With 13 Subpoenas As Mueller Closes In

The BlueDot Express reports that ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, Elijah Cummings, asked Trey Gowdy to place 13 subpoenas on the agenda for the committee’s meeting on February 6.

According to the documents, there were requests before for “setting specific bases for the motions, but you (Trey) have not responded.” Of those requests, some fell under the Department of Homeland Security withholding documents on Russian attacks before the election. In this section, the letter outlines:

On October 20, 2017, ranking member Cummings and Information Technology Subcommittee ranking member Robin Kelly sent a letter requesting documents from the DHS relating to Russian-based efforts to monitor, penetrate or otherwise hack at least 21 state election systems in the 2016 election.

Let that sink in. The intention of Russian hackers didn’t apply to the presidency only, their goal was to create havoc at the foundational levels of our government, knowing if they could shake those up it would create a house of cards effect.

This is only one of the 13 requests by Cummings. Another one concerned Jared Kushner. It alleged he withheld emails that violate the presidential records act.

On September 25, 2017, Cummings requested that senior adviser to the president, Jared Kushner, provide a list of all the emails in which he conducted official business on private accounts. Kushner refused. On December 22, 2017, Cummings asked Kushner to join him in obtaining copies of the emails that Kushner sent or received in violation of the Presidential Record Act, which requires federal employees to copy or forward all emails sent on private accounts to their government accounts within 20 days. Kushner never responded.

This is just a sampling of the many accounts the House Oversight Committee is looking into, you can about all 13 here. The committee will vote soon on the subpoenas, indicating that Gowdy approved the request. Gowdy has been in the news recently for first supporting Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between Russia and the Trump administration, and recently he announced he wouldn’t seeking re-election.

Gowdy becomes a key piece in this process because it signifies a shift from Democrats working alone to a bipartisan effort. And now that the committee is looking to vote on the subpoenas, expect more desperation from the right, as their day on top appears to be soon over.
