Where's the warrant? Where's the probably cause?

Where's the search?

A subpoena does not authorize entry into a person's place of business or home - it is an order to the person to deliver records or appear before Congress (or a court or grand jury) to provide testimony. Congress has the power to subpoena all relevant information and records necessary to its legislative and oversight functions - its subpoena power, just like that of a court, is not limited to instances where probable cause of a crime exists.
