WASHINGTON — Ex-FBI Director James Comey and dozens of other Obama-era officials could soon be hauled before Congress after the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday gave Chairman Lindsey Graham unilateral subpoena powers as part of his review into the Mueller probe.

The committee on Thursday voted along party lines to give Graham (R-SC) the authority to subpoena more than 50 mostly Obama administration officials as part of the GOP-led review, including Comey, ex-CIA Director John Brennan and former national security adviser Susan Rice, among others.

Democrats on the committee accused Republicans of doing President Trump’s bidding ahead of the November election and grew frustrated when their requests to subpoena their own witnesses, including Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, were continually knocked down.

“The fact that you are turning down every single relevant witness tells us and tells the world this is an irrelevant investigation,” said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).

“This is stacked, my friends,” he added.

Democrats also argued that the review was unnecessary because it would be going over the same ground as a probe by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz that found the origins of the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election were littered with errors.

  • Yesterday saw the opening curtain on the latest Washington production of 'fool the People'...  It began with an ill-fated tap dance and a series of failed tunes, sung by Rod Rosenstein.  Bolstered by a poorly conceived litany of softball questions, led by a chorus of Republicans, Mr. Rosenstein did a tap dance to the lyrics of 'I don't know', ' I don't recall' and 'It wasn't my job'... with Senator, life-time RINO, Lindsay Graham, directing, and Mr. Rosenstein performing. This carefully choreographed production of the Washington two-step not only lacked originality it failed to make the B list for Washington sequels.

    America doesn't need more investigations... all the questions Sen. Graham wants to be asked are in the public record. What America is witnessing is ACT 3 in the latest sequel to the production of 'Fool the People'. This is just more bad political theater, directed by RINO Graham, designed to obfuscate, confuse, delay, and ultimately, avoid fixing real accountability. What the Paying Public wants to see is a President, center stage,  who will enforce the law, no matter how many FBI Directors, Agents, AG's, US Attorneys, or Career Lawyers he needs to fire.

    What America expects is for the President to enforce the rule of law...  The public wants the President to direct his full attention to draining the swamp before the swamp swallows him and the Republic. One doesn't negotiate with Domestic Terrorists or Communists.  One locks them up and throws away the key. History is replete with failed attempts at bipartisanship.  Marxist don't negotiate in good faith, and neither do their progressive dupes. Stop trying to negotiate with the left and their progressive dupes. History proves it can only end in failure.  Lock them up.

  • Hey Jeff Noncent:  Does he have his hand raised to check out which way the political wind is blowing or is he really going to do what should have been done two years ago??? 

    • who knows both of the question you ask should go directly to him hopefully he will answer your question.


    • who?


  • I will believe it when it's official.

  • This is all a big yawner until we lock 'em up


  • This is the beginning of the end for demorats. They'll be gone before you know it and Trump won't have to deal with nasty, unpatriotic opposition anymore. He'll also take control of the media, no more fake news, and then he'll make America even greater than he has made it so far. I find it amazing what he has accomplished despite having to fight the enemy within almost 24/7. But I'm not sick of winning yet. There is more to come. Have faith!
