The House Committee on the Judiciary voted Thursday to empower Chairman Jerrold Nadler to subpoena 12 people, including some former Trump administration officials, as part of its investigations into the president.
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 committee's resolution also authorizes subpoenas for testimony and documents related to the Trump administration's policies related to immigration enforcement on the U.S. -Mexico border when it comes to family separation and child detention.
Despite rancorous Republican opposition, Judiciary Committee Democrats with out misfortune pushed the subpoena authorizations by on Thursday alongside safe collectively traces - promising to soar-beginning two of their very best-priority oversight investigations of Mr. Trump and his presidency.
Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the committee's top Republican, was among the members who described a format that would have Mueller leave to appear before the House Intelligence Committee, a smaller panel where all members are expected to have time to ask questions.Читайте также: Google search serves up Wimbledon tennis mini-game

"If the goal truly is to get the information or testimony, our chairman is failing us, but, as I've repeatedly said, if the goal is political theatre, Chairman Nadler is winning", Collins said. Cline says he believes the report showed there was no collusion nor evidence of any criminal activity by the Trump campaign.
"If all Mueller did is walk through the report in clear dramatic language that would make a major difference", he said.
At Thursday's vote, Mueller's testimony loomed over the proceedings.
About a quarter of the 235 Democrats in the House have called for Trump's impeachment, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has blocked the start of impeachment hearings while supporting on-going investigations. It's likely that not every member will get to question Mueller, a point that raised ire among Republicans at the committee meeting.
The department is opposing testimony by Aaron Zebley and James Quarles before the Democratic-led Judiciary and Intelligence committees in the House of Representatives, two sources said.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
