House Committee Threatens To Subpoena Betsy DeVos After She Blows Them Off For Trump Campaign Events

She’ll probably just ignore it. Nothing matters anymore.

House Oversight Committee Chair Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) warned Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Monday that the panel may subpoena her to testify after she attended campaign events on behalf of President Trump rather than testifying before the committee.

The committee chair wrote that while DeVos is not barred from campaigning for the president, “you may not do so when it interferes with your official duties, including your duty to testify before Congress. If you will not agree to testify voluntarily, the Committee will have no choice but to consider issuing a subpoena to compel your appearance.”

The letter sets a revised hearing date of March 3, 2020, giving DeVos until Feb. 7, 2020, to send the committee word whether she intends to appear voluntarily.
