|OT| Spygate subpoenas issued.

The media reaction is as expected:

A Senate committee voted on Wednesday to authorize more than three dozen subpoenas and depositions as part of a highly partisan, Republican-led investigation targeting former Obama administration officials’ role in the presidential transition period.
Still, Wednesday’s vote represents a significant escalation of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s probes targeting President Donald Trump’s political foes — less than 50 days before Election Day.
Democrats contend that both probes amount to inappropriate fishing expeditions aimed at tarring Biden, the party’s 2020 presidential nominee. They also say Johnson’s investigations mirror a Russian disinformation campaign.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday sought to pass a resolution “calling for a cessation of any Senate investigation or activity that allows Congress to act as a conduit for Russian information.” Johnson objected to the resolution after Schumer slammed his investigations.

“While the rest of the country has been focused on fighting a global pandemic, for the last few months the chairman and Republicans of the committee have wasted taxpayer resources to run a hit job on President Trump’s political rival,” Schumer said.
Strange how all of this sounds exactly like the Mueller investigation, but that was okay.

You have to understand they are setting up the narrative. The key here is its being framed as an attack on Biden and Trumps political opponents.

So if any indictments fly or anyone admits to some wrong doing during testimony they can push that this is "election interference"

Rules for thee.
