(The Washington Times) Thanks to a flurry of Ukraine activity House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic majority have approved more subpoenas to investigate President Trump than they have written laws. The subpoena issued Tuesday morning to former Ambassador William Taylor marked the 56th that has been publicly acknowledged and aimed at Mr. Trump and his team. That is 10 more than the 46 House bills that have become law this year. Its far from a subpoena record but it is complicating Mrs. Pelosis attempt to portray her troops as focused on their agenda. Perhaps more worrying to Mrs. Pelosis cause is the conclusion of a former senior oversight attorney for the House who said the spate of subpoenas issued this month as part of Democrats impeachment inquiry is illegal. Samuel Dewey a lawyer at McDermott Will & Emery who used to lead investigations for the House Financial Services Committee said the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence led by Rep. Adam B. Schiff of California is not authorized under the rules to lead an impeachment probe.
