Congress Goes After 41 Spygate Suspects – Senate Panel Issues Subpoena For Stefan Halper And Others

What’s Happening:

You might be wondering why Congress appears to be moving so slowly with Spygate.

It’s been four years since the 2016 election—four years since Trump’s campaign was spied on.

But we’re finally seeing some real movement against those who may have abused their power.

A Senate panel is unloading a long list of subpoenas:

A Senate committee voted along party lines on Wednesday to authorize depositions and subpoenas for 41 individuals as part of a review of the Trump-Russia investigation.

The vote authorizes Sen. Ron Johnson, the Republican chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, to subpoena Stefan Halper, a former University of Cambridge professor who served as a confidential source for the FBI during Crossfire Hurricane, the name of the Trump-Russia counterintelligence investigation.

Senate Republicans voted to approve a list of subpoenas for 41 people connected to the Obama administration’s “Russia investigation.”

Not one Democrat voted for the subpoenas. Funny, isn’t it? After all, this relates to the Russian investigation, something they were pretty upset about not that long ago.

You’d think, out of everyone, Democrats would want to get to the bottom of this case the most.

Unless, of course, they don’t want America finding out if Obama officials did something they were not supposed to.

Sen. Ron Johnson will be seeking testimony from Stefan Halper, who apparently was a confidential source for the FBI during Crossfire Hurricane.

The committee will also be subpoenaing Steven Somma, and FBI agent who worked with Halper.

The Senate will also be requesting information from numerous others connected to Spygate.

Democrats tried to accuse Sen. Johnson of leading a “politically-motivated” investigation that is meant to help President Trump.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, huh? Remember, Democrats impeached Trump over a phone call.

Many accused them of running a circus based entirely on political motives.

Yet when a Republican wants to investigate whether or not the Obama administration violated the privacy of Americans—suddenly Democrats are upset.

In addition to the mentioned names, Johnson is seeking interviews from people you might recognize: James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page.

All of these people were involved in an apparent plot to undermine the Trump campaign and perhaps influence the election.

Key Takeaways:

  • A Senate committee voted to seek subpoenas from 41 people connected to Spygate.
  • That includes FBI agents and witnesses used to investigate Trump during the 2016 Election.
  • Democrats oppose the subpoenas, claiming it is politically-motivated.
