White House receives House Oversight subpoenas late Friday evening


With a positively wild week already behind us, many believed that perhaps the tumult of our nation’s capital would subside for the weekend.  They were wrong.

As Americans tuned into their their nightly punditry, they were likely greeted with the glaring, gaping wound of a story leading the big networks:  The White House has been subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee.

The White House is already threatening a stance of noncooperation until such a time as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi calls on her chamber to vote on impeachment.

Democrats have made it clear that they intend to treat any possible stonewalling as obstruction.
