GOP votes to authorize subpoenas, depositions in Obama-era probe
By Jordain Carney - 09/16/20 10:49 AM EDT

Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted on Wednesday to greenlight subpoenas and depositions as part of an investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe and the Obama administration.

The 8-6 vote along party lines authorizes Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the chairman of the committee, to issue a combination of subpoenas and set up closed-door depositions with approximately 40 individuals.

The vote comes less than two months before the November elections, injecting fresh acrimony into the Wednesday committee meeting where Johnson accused Democrats of a “coordinated smear” against his probes. Sen. Gary Peters (Mich.), the top Democrat on the panel, accused Republicans of a “partisan fishing expedition.”


“I’m disappointed that our committee is once again meeting to discuss the authorization of subpoenas instead ... of the serious challenges facing Americans,” Peters said. “Your own public comments ... state that your desire to reinvestigate these matters demonstrates the alarming partisan nature of this investigation, which is designed to influence the presidential election.”

From the article:
"Johnson has sought interviews with former FBI officials who led Crossfire Hurricane, including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, James Baker, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
He is also seeking depositions for former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.  Also on the list are Cody Shearer and Sidney Blumenthal, two longtime Clinton allies who circulated a dossier that accused Donald Trump of illicit sex acts in Russia. The allegations are similar to those in the dossier by former British spy Christopher Steele."
_______________
I stayed on top of this; researched what each person did as it was happening.
Democrats and Republicans hired Fusion GPS for opposition research on candidates.

I specifically researched Christopher Steele; read about his life:
"He had left the famed Secret Intelligence Service, or MI6 (British Spy group), seven years earlier and was now working on behalf of Fusion GPS." A person at Fusion knew Steele had been a spy for Britain in Russia; he had Russian contacts from his years spent living there.  One of those contacts gave him information about Trump and part of that was the info. about the prostitutes and Trump.

Steele did not know if the prostitute info. was true.  For that reason, besides his report to
Fusion, he took all the info. he got from his Russian contact to the FBI agent Steele worked with when he (Steele), worked for the FBI.  The FBI considered Steele's work reliable.  Steele told the FBI agent to investigate the prostitute report as he did not know if that particular info. was true. 

I also researched Comey's life to know what kind of person he was and is.  He is a religious person, a church going Christian and his parents were church going.  A raper/killer of women got into their home when only Comey and his sister were home; Comey was in his lower teen years; his parents were at church when this happened.  When the killer had been caught by police outside his house, Comey ran to church to get his parents.  It was that experience that turned Comey toward protecting people.  I know he is a truthful person.  Beat up on him as you will do, but I know him; he tells the truth.

You poor demented lady.   
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves every beating it gets.

I usually call it wrong-headed.   But yeah, you could be onto something there.
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)
