The online magazine, Axios, is reporting that Democrats are getting ready for their return to power in the House by loading a “Subpoena Cannon.” They have, says the article, targeted at least 85 individual targets for subpoenas.

Specifically, the magazine says the the cannon is targeting the following and a good deal more:

  • President Trump’s tax returnsTrump family businesses — and whether they comply with the Constitution’s emoluments clause, including the Chinese trademark grant to the Trump Organization

  • Trump’s dealings with Russia, including the president’s preparation for his meeting with Vladimir Putin

  • The payment to Stephanie Clifford — a.k.a. Stormy Daniels

  • James Comey’s firing

  • Trump’s firing of U.S. attorneys

  • Trump’s proposed transgender ban for the military

  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s business dealings

  • White House staff’s personal email use

  • Cabinet secretary travel, office expenses, and other misused perks

  • Discussion of classified information at Mar-a-Lago

  • Jared Kushner’s ethics law compliance

  • Dismissal of members of the EPA board of scientific counselors

  • The travel ban

  • Family separation policy

  • Hurricane response in Puerto Rico

  • Election security and hacking attempts

  • White House security clearances

Whether or not the Democrats will be able to get any information on these topics is, of course, irrelevant. The mere fact that they can now serve the subpoenas means a new world is upon us. Come January, the Republican Party is not going to be nearly as comfortable a place to be.
