House Democratic Russiagate subpoenas can and will be be ignored without consequences. @AdamJWhitedc, @HooverInst, @AdLawCenter:

Adam White, research Fellow, Hoover, & George Mason Center for the Study of the Administrative State; TheBulwark.com in re: Eric Holder and President Obama and his allies chose not to acknowledge the investigatory powers of the House. Holder invoked executive privilege to shield many, many documents; Lois Lerner, of the IRS scandal, refused to testify based on the Fifth Amendment privilege. These differ from the past in that Holder’s condemnation by the House didn't bother him. Can we anticipate that when Adam Schiff or Jerry Nadler investigates, this Administration will refuse to respond? Expect invocation of executive privilege; WH is hiring 17 new lawyers with an emphasis on this. One of Bill Barr’s specialties was executive privilege. The Senate has some tools at its disposal; the House does not, nor can it wield the power of the purse. Only remaining tool to enforce oversight is subpoenas. Civil contempt takes a very long time.
