RNC Sues Nancy Pelosi and Jan. 6 Committee for Overreach!

13

The Republican National Committee (RNC) says that Nancy Pelosi and the Jan. 6 committee have gone too far in subpoenaing Salesforce records involving RNC fundraising efforts.

The subpoena, issued on Feb. 23, seeks evidence that Republican fundraising efforts that spread falsehoods that the 2020 election was stolen contributed to the Capitol riot of Jan. 6. The RNC’s fundraising platform is hosted by software giant Salesforce, Inc. 

However, the RNC has filed a lawsuit to block the subpoena, saying that Pelosi’s committee has subpoenaed Salesforce for the RNC’s data without any legitimate basis. 

In a statement to the press, the RNC said it filed suit to keep the committee “from unlawfully seizing confidential information about the internal activities of the Republican Party and millions of its supporters which is completely unrelated to the attack on the Capitol,” calling the subpoena “overly broad” and accusing Pelosi and the committee of “weaponizing” their investigative powers.

“Salesforce collects and maintains significant amounts of RNC data,” the RNC said, and the subpoena “jeopardizes exposing the personal and private data of up to 60 million Americans” as well as GOP strategy. “The RNC had nothing to do with the violence that occurred at the Capitol and has repeatedly condemned it,” they said.

In a counter-statement, Jan. 6 committee spokesperson Tim Mulvey responded that the subpoena has “absolutely nothing to do with getting the private information of voters or donors.”

“Claims about a stolen election motivated rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6,” he said, adding that the subpoena is intended “to help investigators understand the impact of false, inflammatory messages in the weeks before Jan. 6, the flow of funds, and whether contributions were actually directed to the purpose indicated.”

However, the RNC maintains that “This information has nothing to do with Jan. 6, and there is simply no reason the committee needs personal and private information on millions of Americans. Pelosi and the committee are weaponizing and abusing Congress’ investigatory power.”

We here have long maintained that Pelosi’s committee is illegitimate, having rejected two Republicans that McCarthy appointed to the Committee – Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN) – an abuse of power for purely political reasons. Pelosi’s committee is unconstitutionally attempting to exercise law enforcement authority, with even the left-leaning New York Times reporting  that the committee “is employing techniques more common in criminal cases than in congressional inquiries.”

In addition, the committee has dramatically exceeded its scope, issuing hundreds of wide-ranging subpoenas, such as this one, and demanding records well beyond the scope of the events of Jan. 6, 2021, in disregard of the checks and balances and the rule of due process.

        I pray if the Republicans ever regain the House & Senate they will investigate Nancy Pelosi’s insider trading. It may be ok for elected officials to make stock trades but it is not ok if they are getting their information from legislation they are overseeing.

      Nancy and the White House are quickly turning our country into a socialist, drug infested haven while building a future voting block when they find a way to give citizenship to all the illegal and criminal elements they are allowing to simply walk on the rest of America. Not to mention that the cost is being born by the taxpayers. Wanting our laws to be enforced is not racist or anti immigration. The democratic party’s use of the race card at every turn is disgusting and should be a wake-up call for all of us.

    When the riots, burning, killing, attacking police, and shouting slogans were in portland, Seattle, California, chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Charlottesville, those actions were just movements and righteous anger, but when it’s brought to the heart of the problem , the hallowed halls of Congress, it becomes an insurrection. As Artie Johnson would say, ” interesting, very interesting”.

    1. Nancy says

      Very interesting. It is time to learn who stands to benefit from events of the day, but conservative citizens can’t get these issues into the judicial system. Everything is gossip and/or dealt with in closed door meetings of partisan committees. Definitely not democracy.

    The entire Democrat party hates America and all it’s people. The supporters of the DNC are being used,and don’t even realise it. The DNC will turn on them all in due time. When you play with the satin, aka the DNC, you always get burned. Its just a matter of time.

    1. Nanette Rose- Fisher says

      Yes, very true the Democrats hate the American people and this Country. It is a shame that they have failed their oath of office May God raise up a Standard against them.
