US Rep. Fattah says he’ll fight subpoena
Question of the Day
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah of Philadelphia says he’s going to fight a subpoena that seeks certain documents from his congressional offices.
Fattah submitted a letter Tuesday to the Congressional Record informing the House speaker of the subpoena issued by the U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.
He says he plans to try to quash the subpoena’s request for documents that he believes are not necessary and that are not “consistent with the privileges and rights of the House.”
Otherwise, he says he’ll comply with the subpoena’s other requests.
Fattah didn’t say in the letter what kind of documents it seeks or whether it’s related to a criminal investigation.
A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger in Philadelphia says the office doesn’t confirm or deny the existence of an investigation.
