Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) issued three subpoenas over two major controversies during the Biden administration.
Two subpoenas were issued by the House Oversight Committee for people involved with the National School Board Association (NSBA) and its memo pushing the FBI to treat dissenting parents as domestic terrorists. The third subpoena is to Nina Jankowicz who served as the leader of a disinformation board.

"The [NSBA] board sent a letter to the White House the week before the memo was released, laying out a spate of incidents at recent school board meetings, noting that some threats 'could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes,'" The Hill reported.
"The initial letter from the National School Boards Association references a meeting with the White House and the Department of Education and asks for the Justice Department to review whether the threats may violate a number of different federal laws," it added.
I noted recently that Jankowicz could have other uses for the 100k that she is raising "to sue Fox." This may be one of them. She just got a House subpoena. https://t.co/NBUdcJXf49 Her GoFundMe page leaves wiggle room to spend the money on other uses.https://t.co/mMsya7BUyG

Jankowicz has recently launched a fundraiser to help with legal fees, complete with a video and GoFundMe page.
"Jankowicz posted a five-minute video to her Twitter account along with a GoFundMe page. This video is strictly legal, not musical," Jonathan Turley noted.
"According to the GoFundMe page, she is seeking to raise $100,000," leaving the door open to use funds to sue outlets like Fox News for defamation.
The controversial leader was initially chosen to lead an office to root out "disinformation" for the Department of Homeland Security.
The move was quickly attacked by conservatives and free speech Americans who pushed back against the idea of the government censoring speech, especially by someone with a strongly left bias.
The matter will now go to the committee where Republican leaders will have the chance to ask tough questions as they seek answers about the Biden administration's most controversial moves.
