GOP House Intel Members Block Adam Schiff’s Attempt to Issue Subpoenas and Hold Steve Bannon in Contempt

GOP House Intel members came through Thursday morning and served leaker Adam Schiff a nice dose of reality.

On Thursday morning, ranking member of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff attempted to issue subpoenas and hold Steve Bannon in contempt, but House Majority rejected all of the Democrat motions, bringing Schiff’s Russia probe to a halt.

The GOP House Intel Committee recently ended the Russia probe after finding zero evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.

This isn’t stopping leaker Adam Schiff from marching forward with his witch hunt; he’s pressing forward in his quest to find a unicorn.

CNN’s Manu Raju reported Schiff got smacked down Thursday morning after he tried to issue a number of subpoenas and hold Steve Bannon in contempt.

Manu Raju tweeted: Schiff said Dems sought to hold today’s House Intel hearing in open session, issue a number of subpoenas and hold Bannon in contempt. And GOP rejected all of the Dem motions, effectively bringing the probe to a halt


Part two: Schiff contended that the Dem probe would continue, but they lack subpoena power without GOP support

Part three: Vote was along party lines to declassify GOP report that concludes no collusion between Trump-Russia. It could take months before it comes out

In February, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon complied with a subpoena and appeared before the House Intel Committee to answer questions about ‘Russian meddling’.

Bannon refused to answer all the questions from House Intel members so Adam Schiff and Conway threatened to hold Bannon in contempt of Congress.

It looks like GOP House Intel members took the wind out of old Schiffty’s sails.
