House Democrats have a list of at least 85 different Trump scandals to target with subpoenas: report

Published

on

It looks like Democrats have a massive backlog of Trump scandals to investigate.

Axios is reporting that “there are at least 85 topics that Democrats have said they’d target — or are expected to target — in the forthcoming torrent of investigations and subpoenas” related to President Donald Trump’s administration.

The report cautions that Democrats won’t unleash this torrent of subpoenas all at once, however, as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) tells Axios that the first priorities will be probing Trump’s past business dealings with Russia and negotiations with North Korea.

Other topics that Axios believes Democrats will pursue in investigations include Trump’s tax returns, which he has refused to release for years despite promising to do so; whether Trump’s businesses got special favors from the Chinese government, including Ivanka Trump getting awarded trademarks during trade negotiations; the administration’s policy of separating immigrant parents from their children at the border; and the administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

In addition to all that, Axios’ Jonathan Swan has found that House Democrats have already made 64 different subpoena requests that were blocked by House Republicans — read the full list here.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.

"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.

Trump asked right-wing conspiracy theorist congressman to help him pick his next Director of National Intelligence

Published

on

On Monday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump is consulting with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) about who he should consider to replace Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Nunes has led the Republican side of the House Intelligence Committee since 2015 and chaired the committee for four years, despite having no professional qualifications of any kind for that role.
