NEW: House Judiciary Democrats Prepare Slew of Subpoenas for Trump-Tied Targets Including Jared Kushner, Jeff Sessions and Rosenstein
Rep. Jerrold Nadler
House Judiciary Democrats announced Tuesday they are preparing to authorize subpoenas this week for nearly a dozen people connected to President Trump as part of the committee’s investigation into obstruction of justice, public corruption and other so-called abuses.
The Democrats will be targeting Jared Kushner, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former DAG Rod Rosenstein and others.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said Tuesday that his committee is moving forward with “efforts to request information from critical witnesses as part of our ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption, and abuse of power by the President and his associates.”
“I remain open to reaching a reasonable accommodation and will not issue subpoenas if the information we are seeking is voluntarily provided,” Nadler said Tuesday. “We will get answers one way or the other.”
The House panel’s top Republican Doug Collins (GA) blasted Nadler and accused the Democrats of trying to “relitigate” Mueller’s investigation.
“Today’s latest effort to relitigate the special counsel’s investigation remains unimpressive and unproductive. Mr. Mueller’s team issued more than 2,800 subpoenas before concluding that no Americans conspired with Russia. Even if Chairman Nadler still believes subpoenas are conversation starters, it’s hard to imagine this handful of subpoenas will do anything but reinforce the principal conclusions we’ve been able to read about for months,” Collins said in a statement.
Fox News reported on the full list of Trump-tied individuals who will be receiving fresh subpoenas:
The individuals subject to fresh subpoena are: Sessions; Rosenstein; Kushner; former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn; former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn; former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly; former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; former White House aide Rob Porter; publisher of the National Enquirer David Pecker and chief content officer Dylan Howard; former Stormy Daniels lawyer Keith Davidson; and assistant attorney general for the criminal division Joseph “Jody” Hunt.
President Trump vowed to fight all subpoenas from rabid House Democrats after subpoenas flew in April so he will likely push back on this new round of subpoenas from Nadler.
Democrats no longer legislate. All they do is abuse their power and use money, time and resources to harass President Trump and his associates.
