JORDAN SUBPOENAS GARLAND! Judiciary Chair Wants Records on DOJ Spying on Congressional Aides

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.20.23

House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan has subpoenaed Attorney General Merrick Garland for records of the Department of Justice spying on congressional aides.

From The Washington Examiner:

Jordan wrote to Garland that he needed the information to “independently determine” if the DOJ breached the separation of powers when it subpoenaed telecommunications companies for private information about numerous congressional staff members who were at the time investigating the DOJ’s handling of its Trump-Russia inquiry.

The chairman accused the DOJ of failing to comply fully with his prior requests on the topic.

The subpoena, reviewed by the Washington Examiner, asked Garland to provide the requested materials by Jan. 19.

Jordan initially contacted Garland about the matter in October after Jason Foster, a lawyer for the whistleblower advocacy group Empower Oversight, revealed that Google had recently notified him that the DOJ had subpoenaed it in 2017 for subscriber information associated with telephone numbers of his family members, as well as details about with whom the subscribers were communicating.
