House Democrats plan to probe every aspect of President Trump’s life and work, from family business dealings to the Space Force to his tax returns to possible "leverage" by Russia, top Democrats tell us.

What they're saying: One senior Democratic source said the new majority, which takes power in January, is preparing a "subpoena cannon," like an arena T-shirt cannon.
======================================
I hope they don't take this too far & risk screwing up the 2020 election.

Sounds like they already have. They've gone nucking futs. I'm wondering where they're going to get the personnel and resources to do all this stuff.

Trump makes a too tempting target based on his last 2 year performance.

They're no such thing as taking things too far right now.

Republicans have played politics with subpoena power for decades, harassing Democratic WH's to no end, and being rewarded by their voting base for doing so.

We wanted Democrats to play Republicans at their own game, now lets not complain if we get it.

Dems are self immolating with radical factions that they can't control. I think Kavanaugh was just a taste of what's to come.

Lying about a blow job. Now don't get me wrong, I think Clinton should have given the middle finger to Starr and said, "Yeah I got a blow job, that isn't illegal" and then Starr would have been reduced to a sniveling idiot for even bringing it up. However, it was still investigating a BLOW JOB between TWO CONSENTING ADULTS. No matter how you slice it, it was a TRUE witch hunt.

BTW, if you think lying about a blow job is obstruction of justice (really?) than I can't wait for Trump to be forced to testify under oath and let loose the lies that asshole has lol

If Republicans had actually exercised their Congressional oversight duties for the last two years instead of giving trump permission to do any damn thing he wanted then the task would not have had to fall on Democrats. This is entirely the Republicans' fault.

Good, the malfeasance and incompetence of this administration needs to be thoroughly investigated.

I have no need to convince you, what I said is flat out truth and others can see that. If you think lying about a blow job under oath is bad, wait to see what happens when Trump get put under oath. Let's see you defend those lies :lamo

Total bull****. This is just an extension of the Trump Derangement Syndrome madness that has permeated otherwise nominally sane lefties. It's like a brain-eating virus run amok in the Democratic party.

Given how the Senate Democrats took it 'too far" and did screw it up with the Kavanaugh hearings, you are right to worry, but I think it's pretty much guaranteed the House Democrats are going to do exactly the same thing; go too far and screw up the 2020 election.

Put it another way.

The Democrat base is set to go too far, demanding to go to far, in fact, based on nothing more substantial than 'Hate Trump' and destroy Trump 'by any means necessary'. Congressional Democrats who don't comply and do so are going to find themselves voted out in short order in favor of those that will. This puts those congressional Democrats in a tough spot. Are they going to do the 'right' thing? Or not? Based on the behavior shown in during the Kavanaugh hearings, seems unlikely that they would do the 'right' thing.

Sorry, "trump derangement syndrome" isn't a legal theory for refusing to respond to subpoenas.

I wasn't the blow job. Who gives a ****?
It was the lying under oath. Everyone should give a **** about that.

Rest easy, I don't think you'll be subpoenaed.
