"It's a great arrow to have in your quiver, in terms of negotiating on other subjects," Pelosi said on Monday.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted on Monday that House Democrats will use their subpoena power as a negotiating tool if they retake the House after the 2018 midterm elections.

“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,” Pelosi said, while speaking at CNN’s CITIZEN event in New York City.

“A subpoena is a legally enforceable demand to produce information, whether it’s oral testimony, documents or electronic information. If the person named in the subpoena doesn’t comply with the order, he or she can either be hit with fines or even face jail time,” according to Fox News.

This means House Democrats will have the ability to ask President Trump and his administration for any documents they wish, at least those that don’t fall under executive privilege.
