GOP to urge White House not to shred documents

Armed with subpoena power, members of the House Republicans are expected to urge President Obama not to shred any documents. According to The Hill:

Darrell West, a political scientist and director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution, said Republicans likely will formally ask the administration not to shred or delete any relevant documents that could be requested in a congressional probe.

“That’ll happen right away, because they want to make sure that the documentary record is preserved so that they have something to investigate,” said West.

Armed with the House majority, Republicans next year will enjoy subpoena power — something they have not had in four years.
