Republicans Issue 35 Subpoenas…Dominoes Begin to Fall

subpoenas

The Obamagate dominoes are slowly starting to topple. Senator Ron Johnson lined up 35 witness subpoenas in a neat little row, ready for the big push. His partner Lindsey Graham has a stack of his own to send out soon.

Subpoenas flying like snowflakes

South Carolina republican Lindsey Graham has the votes he needs to authorize subpoenas but he wants to let his committee thrash out their differences for the record, to build an airtight case. Graham watched his democrat Senate Judiciary Committee members go spastic like spoiled children so he postponed the battle to next week. He’s letting them twist in the wind while they watch the fireworks from what Johnson managed put in motion Thursday.

Over at the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Wisconsin republican Ron Johnson had better luck than Graham. His committee voted to grant “broad subpoena authority as part of a probe stemming from the Obama administration.” More than 35 people and “a swath of documents” were pre-approved so he doesn’t need to ask for each one separately.

“Evidence is mounting,” Johnson insists. He wants the public to know that the transition from Obama to Trump was not a “peaceful and cooperative” one. “The conduct we know that occurred during the transition should concern everyone and absolutely warrants further investigation.” It’s expected that “former FBI Director James Comey, former national security adviser Susan Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan, among others” will soon be dragged back up on the witness stand.

As a bonus, Johnson can drag in “FBI records relating to Crossfire Hurricane and the State Department for any records related to Christopher Steele.” Those should make interesting reading. Mitt Romney went RINO and managed to “narrow” the scope of Johnson’s investigation to prevent inspectors general or the work products from being subpoenaed. That makes everyone wonder what he’s hiding.

Graham ready to add 50 more

Lindsey Graham has 50 subpoenas he wants to send out but had to postpone the authorization. He told the press “he was delaying the vote to give senators enough time to fully debate the issue.” Everyone kept looking at their watches with a pending floor vote. They were trying to set a schedule but nobody would cooperate.

“Can we get a sense of how long we’re going to be here?” Republican Ben Sasse whined. He went on to note, “it’s bullshit the way people grandstand for cameras in here.” About “90 percent of our committees are about people trolling for soundbites.” The chairman disagreed. “I don’t think they’re trolling for soundbites,” Graham admitted, “I think they’re genuinely upset with what I’m doing.” Earlier, Graham noted the “Steele dossier of opposition research was used to get the surveillance warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.” Dick Durban snarled, “that is your theory.” Graham wasn’t phased. “these are facts.”

Graham wants his committee’s full attention. “We’re going to do what this committee needs to do, and we’re going to fight it out and we’re going to vote. And we’re not going to be done today, so I don’t see a resolution this day, if you need to go somewhere go.”

Graham assures The Hill he has the votes, it’s not a problem. He “wanted to give members enough time to discuss the investigation first.” He might even get the documents that Johnson agreed to waive. Lindsey Graham is asking for subpoenas “to compel documents and records referenced in Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s review of FISA warrant applications and documents or testimony from any current or former executive branch official or employee involved in, the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”

  1. It would be nice if those senate committees would keep their findings to themselves, no leaks to let the looked into parties any idea what they are going after until they are ready to throw the book. I know it is a hard thing to ask for where most Legislators are predetermined to leak

  2. High time these criminals are exposed, hopefully sentenced to many years of hell.
    CNN fruits, MSNBC, NBC & Twitter CEO should be warned to end their abuse of lying words, arrested if needed.
    TRUMP 2020!

  3. Big deal, maybe only some little people will be charged and then there is a 1in a million chance of a conviction! The elite corrupt gods will walk free, because theY HAD NO INTENT! Only little people intend to commit crimes and besides the Republican Party has always had to many democrats in it, so they will keep the clown show going without any repercussions to any communist democrats!

  4. Be sure to punish the gullty for their crimes! The democrats surely would and We the People DEMAND justice against the guilty parties!

  5. Here we go once again… We saw how even the past subpoenas were issued for Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, etc., and nothing came of those hearings. Just a lot of grand-standing. I bet this one will be no different…unless Bill Barr can prosecute outside these hearings. Time will tell.

  6. Printed and written PROOF of the fiasco of the previous administration is called “theory” by democrats. They wouldn’t know the truth unless they made it up themselves. Here is the problem that EVERYONE needs to know. We are being subjected to lies and treachery from politicians who have PROMISED to do what is right FOR THE PEOPLE for 40+ years and ALL they have done is get RICH from our freedoms and taxes being taken away. If you Believe a Liberal is working for you, you will be standing in a line for food and clothing because they are taking all of your freedoms. And the next time your politicians declare proof to be lies, call them to PROVE their accusations. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah

  7. The Dems are all nervous because they are guilty. The left, including, Obama have been up to no good and the the true hand of justice for all is working.

  8. I’m still not convinced that LindseyGraham is all on the up & up. I think he is trying to drag this out until after the election in hopes that somehow Trump can get beat and then all this will be dropped.

  9. It’s good to see something being done , but I bet you none of the top players are in this list . It’s always the little guy that gets burn . Not the big boss . I bet hillary and Obama are not on that list . How about the old FBI heads , or the now crew like nasty Nancy and mad max the racists bitch for telling the dumb ass’s to go out there and attack trump surporters . And you know they have a hand in the riots going on right now . Come back when your taking down the top players . Not the little fish . This is just a side show to get every one excited nothing more . We want to see real justice not a side show

  10. The question here is: What are they going to do with the criminal coup intent that has been going on for over 3 years. I SAY IT’S A DOG AND PONY SHOW AND SPENDING MO MONIES FOR THEIR LAW YER FRIENDS, YES SPEND MILLIONS MORE TO DO NOTHING, GRAHAM YOU HAVE A SLIT BETWEEN YOUR LEGS

  11. I would feel a lot better about all of this digging and investigating if I actually thought that at the end of the day we would find out what happened and why. Unfortunately, I have no such belief. They did a couple dozen investigations of Hillary in the House and though everybody knows what a corrupt criminal she is-nothing happened. That is what I think will happen with all of the current ongoing investigations-including the one run by Durham-when it’s all over we won’t know a damned thing we don’t already know and NO ONE will be punished. We’re just citizens and the truth is none of our business…just follow the yellow brick road to the New One World Order.

  12. It’ll all be fire and thunder, but I doubt anything will happen.

    If cornered, the socialist bureaucratic Deep State will literally unleash holy hell and kill.

  13. As Clint Eastwood’s movie title:
    “HANG THEM HIGH”
    All these bastards but in particular:
    James Comey (The Communist), John Brennan (The Pale face and Bastard Islamista), Susan Rice (the Benghazi video Expert), “Curly” and ugly McCay,
    Rosenstein (The Son of Frankeston), Saddam (Jose`) Hussein Obama for being the Mastermind of this abuse of power and others.

  14. Lindsey GRAHAM has become a joke. He’s a damn RINO. He’s also an Obstructionist, just Like FBI director WRAY. I’m still not sure about BARR yet. He’s done nothing since he’s been in office, but, he’s still threatening.

  15. The Dem’s need to flip 4 seats in November and all of Grahams and the Republicans chest thumping becomes worthless!

  16. This is nothing but to blow smoke up people’s asses. Graham knows people will think he is trying to do something which is pure bull shit . NOTHING ever come out of these hearings.

  17. Don’t believe anything Lindsey Graham says, he is a liar, an opportunist, and a total worthless skunk. He should NEVER, NEVER be trusted.

  18. ALL empty words for now they are playing the public like a fiddle!!!!
    “We were smaller then,you see,but soon we gathered like a storm,and they don’t understand what that thunder meant at all”!!!
