Soon-empowered House Democrats have so many ready targets for subpoena and investigation in the Trump administration they are vowing to sort them strategically – but that still leaves more than six dozen targets.

The avenues of potential inquiry for Democrats who take over the investigatory machinery of the House include President Trump’s finances, his family’s ethics disclosures, and the president’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Democrats raised the prospect of getting hold of the president’s tax returns even before the elections – where a Democratic wave took down close to 40 Republican seats once California results came in.

The heads of congressional tax-writing panels have the authority to get any return under existing law, though Trump has resisted making his returns public for years.

President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki this past summer, which attracted a flurry of criticism when Trump explained Putin’s position on election meddling, also may be the subject of investigative oversight, which each congressional panel is empowered to conduct.

A list generated by Axios based on public comments and other information lists a whopping 85 potential targets for investigation before Republicans even hand over the gavel.

A Democratic aide referred to it in the report as a ‘subpoena cannon.’
