The Republican U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chair, Jim Jordan, has subpoenaed Attorney General Merrick Garland over allegations that the Justice Department attempted to access personal information of some congressional aides.
This controversy stems from a 2017 investigation in which the Justice Department subpoenaed Google to produce a Senate staffer’s personal phone records and emails related to the handling of the “Steele dossier” involving possible contacts between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Additionally, Jordan has issued subpoenas to Biden administration officials over probes including the Justice Department’s investigation of tax filings by President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)
