Democrats issue new subpoena for longtime White House advisor

There has been no sign from the Executive Branch as to whether or not they will instruct this staffer to defy the request.

The democrats have been on a roll when it comes to congressional subpoenas this week, having finally compelled Robert Mueller to testify regarding his 22 month long investigation into the “Russiagate” conspiracy theory.

But that’s not the only “big fish” that the democrats have hooked, however.

The House Oversight Committee voted on Wednesday to subpoena testimony from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after a federal agency recommended that she should be fired for repeatedly violating a law that limits the political activities of federal employees.

Chairman Elijah Cummings, Democrat of Maryland, has warned that his panel would vote to hold Conway in contempt if she ignores the subpoena. Conway did not appear on Wednesday on the advice of White House counsel for the committee’s scheduled hearing.

The vote — 25 to 16, with Democrats and Rep. Justin Amash, Republican of Michigan, voting in favor — could set up another challenge in court between Congress and the Trump administration, which has consistently stymied Democrats’ oversight efforts since they took control of the House earlier this year.

Cummings was terse in his statements regarding the move.

“This is not a conspiracy to silence her or restrict her First Amendment rights,” Cummings said. “This is an effort to enforce federal law.”

“Nobody in this country is above the law,” added Cummings.

It is unclear at this time if Conway will be directed by the White House to defy the subpoena, a maneuver that has been employed by the Executive Branch regarding requests for testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn just weeks ago.
