Sen. Ron Johnson’s Russian propaganda fueled investigation has approved subpoenas and depositions in opposition to forty-one former Obama officers.
Politico reported, “A Senate committee voted to authorize greater than three dozen subpoenas and depositions as a part of a extremely partisan, Republican-led investigation focusing on former Obama administration officers’ function within the presidential transition interval.”
Right here is the unique draft listing of officers to be subpoenaed:

Republicans scrapped the vote to authorize the subpoenas associated to Hunter Biden, however Sen. Ron Johnson’s Homeland Safety and Authorities Affairs Committee investigations are laundering Russian propaganda as the premise and spine of their data. Johnson has already admitted that the purpose of his investigations is to assist Trump win.
Senate Republicans try to legitimize a conspiracy concept to offer a canopy for Russian election interference. Numerous investigations have already concluded that Donald Trump was not spied on by the Obama administration.
None of that may cease Sen. Ron Johnson and the Republican majority on his committee who’re abusing their investigative powers to create a distraction concern that they hope will assist Donald Trump win a second time period.
It’s the 2016 playbook yet again, however this time voters and the media aren’t shopping for it.
