Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Doug Collins (R-Ga.) proclaimed that “the circus continues” with the upcoming subpoena vote by the Democrat-controlled committee targeting witnesses from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation.
During Thursday’s interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Collins was asked if he believed if any of the witnesses from Mueller’s investigation that the House Judiciary Committee is preparing to vote to subpoena would show up to testify.
Collins responded by proclaiming that the “circus continues” and questioned whether the House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and other Democrats on the committee “slept through law school” when they were being taught about subpoenas.
“The circus continues. This has become nothing but a circus show for the last six months,” said Collins. “And I’m really beginning to wonder if the chairman and maybe other parts of the Democratic side slept through law school when they were to determine what a subpoena actually is.”

The House Judiciary ranking member continued to say that many of the people the committee will be voting on subpoenas for “have never been contacted before” and that the proposed subpoenas were only happening because the Democrats “had a bad couple of weeks in the press.”
“What’s really interesting is: is [that] many of these people have never been contacted before. This is the very first time they’ve even been contacted. […] This is simply because [the Democrats] had a bad couple of weeks in the press when they left here on immigration and other things, and they’re trying to retake the narrative. And they’re doing so by subpoenas.”
The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled for a hearing on Thursday where the panel will vote on whether or not to subpoena 12 witnesses from Mueller’s investigation, including former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
