If there’s collateral damage to people who don’t share your views then so be it, right Nancy Pelosi?
On Monday, Nancy Pelosi admitted what we’ve known all along–the Democrats are lawless, power hungry psychopaths who will target and abuse everyone with the full power of the government if they don’t go along with their political agenda.
“Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it. It’s a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects,” Pelosi said to CNN’s Dana Bash on Monday.
“By saying she’s willing to use subpoena power as a negotiating chip for other issues, Nancy Pelosi is admitting what we’ve known all along – that the countless investigations Democrats are threatening to launch are baseless and totally political,” Ronna McDaniel said.
The Hill reported that the top priorities for Democrats, according to congressional observers, would be to use their subpoena power to obtain a trove of potentially revealing and sensitive documents from the Trump administration.
At the top of Democrats’ wish list: getting their hands on Trump’s tax returns.
Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) has led multiple attempts to compel the House Ways and Means Committee to release the president’s tax returns, but the effort has gone nowhere in the Republican-controlled House. But if Democrats are in charge, it will likely be the first thing that Pascrell calls for.
“I believe the powerful Ways and Means Committee has the responsibility to ensure proper oversight of the executive branch by requesting a review of President Trump’s tax returns and moving towards a formal release of these documents to the public,” Pascrell said in a statement.
Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have made 13 failed motions for subpoenas that touch on a wide range of other issues related to the Trump administration.
