It seems, once again, that the democrats just don’t know when to stop.
For years now, the American people have endured an inordinate amount of speculation regarding President Donald Trump and his alleged ties to the Russian government. At one point, this democratically held belief was so strong that it even spawned the appointment of Robert Mueller to the position of Special Counsel, sparking a 22-month long investigation whose conclusions were somehow unsatisfactory to the left side of the aisle.
With Mueller unable to change the President with any crimes, it has become the sole duty of some delusional lawmakers to continue the completed investigation, despite Mueller’s own finality having been on full display during a rare press conference just weeks ago.
One of the democrats who seems unwilling to let it go is Adam Schiff, who this week stunned Washington with the issuance of two subpoenas for testimony from the Trump inner circle.
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Thursday subpoenaed retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and former Trump Deputy Campaign Manager Rick Gates for documents and testimony.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the panel’s chairman, claims the pair have been uncooperative in Congress’s “oversight” investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Schiff’s statement was class “resistance” rhetoric.
“As part of our oversight work, the House Intelligence Committee is continuing to examine the deep counterintelligence concerns raised in Special Counsel Mueller’s report, and that requires speaking directly with the fact witnesses,” Schiff said in a statement. “Both Michael Flynn and Rick Gates were critical witnesses for Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, but so far have refused to cooperate fully with Congress.”
The move comes just as the Department of Justice has struck a deal with congressional leaders to hand over more detailed versions of the Mueller report, hopefully negating the need to enforce a contempt of Congress charge against Attorney General Bill Barr.
