The Trump-Russia investigation is speeding towards the truth. While special prosecutor Robert Mueller pursues the president’s collusion and treason independently, the Senate Intelligence Committee continues its own inquiry into the scandal. The first big step for both groups is gathering up all the available information scattered throughout numerous government agencies and departments.
The Senate Intel Committee just took a big step by granting Republican Committee Chair Richard Burr and Democratic Vice-Chair Mark Warner “blanket authority to issue subpoenas” for their Russian probe.
The committee released a statement:
The committee leaders now have full legal authority to compel the release of documents and testimony related to the case. The committee previously subpoenaed disgraced National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, demanding he hand over all memos and communications related to Russia, but so far he has refused to obey the order. Should he continue to fail to do so, he could be putting himself at severe legal risk.
It’s only a matter of time before a full picture of events emerges and Trump is once and for all exposed. Our treasonous president should be very worried.
