Jordan fires off first subpoenas against Biden admin

1
The information Jordan is requesting largely reflects a months-long push by the Ohio Republican. The White House previously warned him and Oversight Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) that they would have to re-submit any requests they made while they were still in the minority.

Among the broad swath of records Jordan is requesting from Garland is any documents or communications between DOJ employees and the National School Boards Association, any guidance that stemmed from Garland’s memorandum on threats against school officials and documents and communications from the task force the Justice Department announced in October that was supposed to discuss potential prosecution of any crimes. A DOJ official confirmed the receipt of the subpoena on Friday.

Jordan, in his subpoena to Wray, asked for documents and communications related to the task force, or the bureau’s role, and documents and communications related to a tag the FBI used to track threats against school officials. The committee also conducted a voluntary transcribed interview earlier this week with former FBI official Jill Sanborn as part of its broad investigation into the FBI and DOJ.

Gym Jordan is determined to cause confusion and use his congressional powers to do anything he can to screw with the executive branch and the Dems.

I think it would be wrong for the Biden administration to just ignore Jordan's House Judiciary Committee subpoenas. Trump administration officials tried that and were held in Contempt of Congress and federal judges both Democratic and Republican upheld those House subpoenas, so there are recent precedents from federal courts. And it doesn't look good going into 2024.

Republicans have already talked about impeaching DHS Secty Alejandro Mayorkas over southern border issues. Biden's administration really f--ked that one up, even Democratic mayors are complaining, Democratic NYC Mayor Eric Adams even made a trip to the TX border to complain.

I agree. Don't ignore them, cite Executive Privilege, force it into the courts, and delay, delay, delay.
