House panel authorizes subpoenas for Jared Kushner, Trump officials

The Democrat-dominated US House Judiciary Committee has authorised Jerrold Nadler, the committee's chairman, to issue subpoenas for Trumps advisers, both current and former, which could include Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The dozen witnesses - which also include former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, former Trump aide Rob Porter and former chief of staff John Kelly - all delivered key testimony to the special counsel about Trump's attempts to stop the Russian Federation probe into him and his associates.

The Judiciary panel also voted Thursday to subpoena documents related to the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" policy on migrants entering the country illegally, which led to the separation of thousands of children from their parents in 2018.

Among the other subpoena targets are Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager; Jody Hunt, Sessions' former chief of staff, and former White House aides Rob Porter and Rick Dearborn.

Democrats moreover authorized a subpoena for David J. Pecker, who as head of American Media helped Mr. Trump in the end of the 2016 presidential advertising campaign remove the silence of a pornographic film actress and a extinct Playboy model, each and every of whom claimed to beget had sexual relationships with him.

Nadler wouldn't comment on the format after being repeatedly asked about it by Republicans.

Doug Collins, the top Republican on the committee, lashed out at what he called a "subpoena binge" by Democrats simply scoring cheap political hits rather than conducting effective oversight. Mueller pointedly said he would have exonerated Trump if he could have but did not.

Ultimately, congressional sources said, Democratic leaders had to make a decision given that talks were dragging for months with Mueller, who didn't want to testify.

In a 448-page report, Mueller said the Trump campaign had numerous contacts with Moscow, though the investigation did not find sufficient evidence to show conspiracy.

Other Republicans used the meeting to vent about the strict constraints that members are poised to face during next week's hearing with Mueller. "Many questions remain, and it is past time that we hold this administration responsible". At a news conference in May, Mueller said the team chose the words in the report carefully and that the work speaks for itself. There was renewed outrage in recent weeks after squalid conditions were reported at border facilities where scores of children are detained well beyond the 72-hour limit by which they are to be transferred to more suitable facilities. Trump has been trying to stop a surge in migration at the southern border. And he said the Justice Department's standing opinion that a sitting president couldn't be indicted meant he also couldn't recommend Trump be criminally charged, even in secret.
