Washington - The U.S. House Judiciary Committee said on Tuesday it would draw up a resolution this week authorizing subpoenas to compel testimony from a dozen current and former Trump administration officials, including the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The committee said in a statement it would meet on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for a string of high-profile officials, including White House aide Kushner, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The chairman of the Democratic-controlled committee, Representative Jerrold Nadler, said the subpoenas were part of the panel’s “ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption and abuse of power by the president and his associates.”

Nadler said the panel was open to a “reasonable accommodation” with the witnesses and would “not issue subpoenas if the information we are seeking is voluntarily provided.”

“We will get answers one way or the other,” he said in a statement.

Arrogant & pathetic Nadler; "We will get answers one way or the other". The answer he will get will be the Supreme Court ruling that Congress has no right to harass the President, nor his relatives, nor his former or current employees; nor is Congress authorized to go on fishing expeditions to try to find crimes, nor to find information that's intended to embarrass the President.

they have such a long list I bet the white house cleaning crew will be the next up for getting subpoenas that will round out the hate lists of how to block up congress for another few weeks. The whining millionaires, that is what I call congress ,is running out of things to block moving forward. But keep voting for these people, the same people you keep getting the same thing.
