Just as Devin Nunes was involved in the Mueller investigation, Jim Jordan leaked evidence and information to the failed ex-President about 1/6 and the Justice Department’s multiple criminal investigations into the theft of classified documents from him. I’m trying to become a mole.
Since the Justice Department has no habit of turning over that evidence to anyone, the subpoenas lead to a lengthy legal battle between the Justice Department and House Republicans.
Jordan should struggle to justify his and his committee’s reasons An ongoing investigation to conduct oversight of the legislative branch will require criminal evidence. As seen in other congressional investigations, subpoenas can be tied up in court for years. A subpoena issued by Jordan will likely be rendered moot either by Democrats retaking the House or Trump being criminally charged.
