No Schiff DID NOT Send Subpoenas to the Pentagon today, he cant



Yes, congress can issue subpoenas; however a congressional committee must meet three requirements for their investigative subpoenas to be “legally sufficient” or have “judicial authority”; meaning a subpoena that carries a legal penalty for non-compliance.

First: “the committee’s investigation of the broad subject area must be authorized by its chamber;
Second: “the investigation must pursue “a valid legislative purpose” but does not need to involve legislation and does not need to specify the ultimate intent of Congress;

Third: the specific inquiries must be pertinent to the subject matter area that has been authorized for investigation.

These “subpoenas” from the committees do not meet the first hurdle. The “impeachment inquiry” was not authorized by its chamber. The chamber for each committee is the full house of representatives. [Again, there are constitutional processes within impeachment

2. They're more like an RFI

with a threat that you will be guilty of obstruction of congress. All their standing committees have subpoena power. They don't want to use it cause they don't want to risk losing in court.

Read Pompeo's response to their letter.

3. Eric Holder ignored subpoenas as did Hillary. ...

Hillary went so far as to destroy information requested by subpoenas.

The fact that there are two different standards of justice in this nation shows just how corrupt the news media and the Deep State is.

We are on the road to becoming a banana republic. Trump may be our last chance to avoid this fate.
