Posted on 07/03/2018 12:13:43 AM PDT by a little elbow grease
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., warned that if Obama administration officials he referred to a congressional task force for testimony on the Russia investigation refuse to cooperate, they will face subpoenas.
Nunes wrote a letter Monday to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., with a list of 10 names from the Obama-era State Department and White House on Monday, urging them to interview these individuals in an "open setting."
During a Monday evening interview on Fox News, Nunes emphasized that because all the people on his list are American citizens, they can be compelled to testify.
"They can plead the Fifth," he told host Laura Ingraham. "This isn't going to be like the documents where we've had to continue to fight with the Justice Department in order to have access to documents. This is much different. These are all American citizens. They will, if they do not agree to appear under oath, and testify, then they will be subpoenaed. That I could tell you for sure."

He was on with Laura Ingraham last night ........ he was very persuasive and determined.
Nunes tightens screws in his probe into surveillance abuses
It’s like Professor Jenkins (Donald Sutherland) in Animal House.
The Dems tried so hard to knock Nunes out of the box. Nunes is not a quitter.
Nunes has led an inquiry looking into the genesis of the federal Russia investigation as well as alleged abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on at least one member of the Trump campaign, all the while being panned by his Democratic colleagues. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who is the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, recently called Nunes one of the "the four horsemen of this apocalypse," along with Gowdy and Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, for their effort to push the DOJ to submit materials "that can be leaked or fed or misrepresented, like the infamous Nunes memorandum, in the service of the president."
The "Nunes memorandum" that Schiff referred to is the memo released by the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee in February alleging the DOJ and FBI sought the authority to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page using the infamous Trump dossier, which had been funded in part by Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee. While the GOP memo found that agents failed to disclose to a federal judge that ex-British spy Christopher Steele's research had Democratic benefactors, a Democratic rebuttal memo argued that the FBI did tell the judge that Steele was likely looking to "discredit" Trump.
The letter Nunes sent to Gowdy and Goodlatte on Monday is the second one in recent days. He sent one on Friday to Gowdy and Goodlatte, encouraging them to interview 17 current and former Justice Department and FBI officials. All 27 came up in the intelligence panel's search for information on potential government surveillance abuse during the 2016 election.
And more names may be on the way soon. "We will be sending a more names here later this week this week," Nunes told Ingraham.
"Justice" is taking a very long time.
But this good guy, Devin Nunes, is one serious and capable dairy farmer.
Not at all. I have complete faith in him.
WHAT'S like Professor Jenkins (Donald Sutherland) in Animal House?
give thanks for Devin Nunes.
Nunes tightens screws in his probe into surveillance abuses
Been saying that for 10 months.
Since I firmly believe that Obama is NOT a citizen of the United States, I question the assertion that citizens can be compelled to respond to a subpoena and may not take the fifth, because, if true, would apply also to Obama himself; or not. Except for that other elephant in the room.
A perfect Schadenfreude political storm.
Thanks a little elbow grease.
Nunes is finished. These threats are laughable. The House was going to take action last week and the week before and the week before for failure to turn over documents!! Zip!! Toothless. Trump does nothing when he could Order the documents turned over in 5 minutes!! I am sick of the theater. We have a government out of control. The justice system is a toy of the establishment. We are close to a revolution.
It’s difficult for congress to actually see justice prevail when the DOJ and FBI are fighting on the side of the evil doers and against congress.
Oooh a subpoena! I’m sure their little dog will put it to proper use.
Trust the plan.
And stop disrespecting one of the FEW Congressmen that is trying.
p.s. Nunes' pulling in Brithis embassy and State Department workers is getting the ball rolling that will lead to State Department and White House malfeasance, including the CIA and foreign actors. Look into "Five eyes." Better yet. Hang out on the Q thread and learn something, boca grande.
From Wikipedia: In all contexts, the revealed events usually entail some form of an end time scenario or the end of the world or revelations into divine, heavenly, or spiritual realms.
I'll settle for the end-time scenario of the New World Odor.
Barry is the son of Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying commie and porno-maker. Barry ended up in Chicago because of Frank.
The born-in-Kenya story was a scam that Barry ran when he was in school. When he got into politics with POTUS aspirations, the story had to be altered to say he was born in Hawaii (which he was) to a Kenyan father (which is false). The reason his original BC had to disappear was because it showed his true father.
I am sure he is trying, but what will he do, when they ignore his subpoena, with contempt and impunity, and I am sure they will?
