In this morning’s Monday News Roundup, I noted a very aggressive series of tweets posted by Sen. Ron Johnson – Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee – taking Democrats like Richard Blumenthal to task for their myriad lies about his committee’s investigation of Spygate/Obamagate.
Just moments after I posted that piece, the great Catherine Herridge of CBS News issued this tweet:
#RussiaReport Senate subpoena @SenRonJohnson for FBI Director Christopher Wray to produce “all records related to Crossfire Hurricane investigation” August 20 + another subpoena has been prepared for Mr. Jonathan Winer, a former employee of the State Department. @CBSNews pic.twitter.com/CYGs93eOFG

Here’s the Text:

C/O Director Christopher Wray

Holy crap. As Ms. Herridge notes, a similar subpoena is also being prepared to send to Jonathan Winer, who was at the State Department while Crossfire Hurricane was ongoing.
This will be a very interesting week, indeed.
That is all.
