Two Democrats on the House Oversight Committee wrote a letter to the Republican chairman urging him to issue a subpoena for Paul Manafort's Pentagon documents.
Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Thursday that he and Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., have written House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., about President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman.
"There have been zero subpoena requests granted on behalf of the committee with respect to the White House, this is despite the fact that we've got four Trump associates that have pled guilty, we've got five under indictment, and you would think that when the lawyer for Manafort and [his business associate Rick] Gates … pleads guilty, you would think that that would give rise to sufficient suspicion to issue a couple of subpoenas, but we've got zero from Trey Gowdy," he said.
"Instead, [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Devin Nunes, with the cooperation of Mr. Gowdy, are investigating the FBI."
He then called back to host Joe Scarborough's earlier statement that he was "confused" by Nunes' and Trump's continued questioning of the FBI, saying, "it is confusing, it is counterintuitive, you'd think they would be interested in enforcing the rule of law, but that's not the case with this White House."
