Wonder if this is the new "Digital" Trade strategy. Remember this was in part due to sanctions. So we could essentially benefit from their 1Billion pay out, get them back rolling, collect in perpetuity, then pull the rug out.....at any time, call it leverage. Pure genius.... :wink:

Can someone explain, what exactly is a "blank subpoena"?

The headline of 100 "BLANK SUBPOENAS" hanging out over jhu's tagline about how fascism comes, makes me a wee bit nervous.... :?

It's a subpoena issued based on "intended use" not a specific individual. That is filled out when the prosecutor decides which witnesses he will actually call, based on the flow of the trial.

so, does the prosecutor have to provide the court with a list of people who he/she potentially intends to subpoena? Or are they really blank checks that allow the prosecutor to subpoena anyone they want up to the number allocated (in this case 100)? If the latter, then why do they even have to go through the court, is it just to create the illusion of process?

I believe he has to supply a list of potentials. I am not a lawyer, so I am not sure.

I hope so, because I would modify your tagline:

Anyone watching any of the Strzok voluntarily appearance before the GOP bozo-legion?

As another observer notes: GOP threatens him with contempt for following the FBI counsel's directive not to answer issues relating to the Russia investigation...and then refuses to release the transcript of Strzok's testimony because it relates to their investigation.

The chair -- Goodlatte (I'd like a good latte!) -- is a remarkable caricature of Congressional Tool.

Did anyone pull out the documents and surveillance that shows how Strzok and Page planted evidence?

Sure, but the other POV is wrong, and frankly laughable. Do you know anything about Strzok other than he emailed his paramour too much? Right: Strzok and Lisa Page subverted democracy by texting one another. Sure.

To paraphrase Warren Rudman, "the GOP has the right to be wrong." The GOP could become a good name for a band: Desperate Bozo Circus.

And I'll add: this looks like Trey's pitch to get on the lifetime teat and become federal judge.

I watched for a couple hours before lunch. Goodlatte is a weasel -- just not a very good one. :lol:

The defense of not releasing the transcript was priceless.

Thought Strzok was more than holding his own. Calm, collected, good responses, compared to a few interrogators who came off as absolutely unhinged, compared to about 50% of all questioners being totally irrelevant. This will go down as a classic Congressional boondoggle. Another dog that won't hunt for 60% of the population.
