House Minority Leader threatens to weaponize the legal system against political rivals

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is so assured of her rise to power that she has already told President Trump that she will use her subpoena power as Majority Leader to control him. She will have no compunctions against using that power to threaten him to come along to get along. Do you think that she understands what Donald Trump thinks about being confronted? Hopefully, it will not come to that.

As Written and Reported By Allahpundit for Hot Air:

Do I understand her correctly? She’s not describing bargaining over document production, in which Congress might demand that the White House produce X,Y, and Z by way of documents and the White House counters with X only and dares them to subpoena the rest and the two branches ultimately compromise on X and Y so as to avoid a long, uncertain court fight.

What she’s imagining is threatening to demand documents or testimony from the White House (or other entities) that Trump might not want made public — unless he makes policy concessions to Democrats. E.g., “You agree to our target number on the infrastructure bill or we’re coming after those tax returns.” Quoth Pelosi, “Subpoena power is interesting, to use it or not to use it. It’s a great arrow to have in your quiver in terms of negotiating on other subjects.” Note: Other subjects.
