The U.S. House Judiciary Committee on Thursday authorized subpoenas of a dozen current and former Trump administration and campaign officials as part of its investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the separation of families at the border with Mexico.
Democrats who control the panel overrode Republican objections to give committee chairman Jerrold Nadler broad discretion in authorizing him to subpoena a wide array of officials who are or have been close to President Donald Trump during his two-and-a-half year presidency.
"We will not rest until we obtain their testimony and documents," Nadler said.
Included on the list are Trump's son-in-law, senior White House adviser Jared 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 list of 12 people also include former Trump campaign chief Corey Lewandowski and David Pecker, the head of National Enquirer publisher American Media Inc., which made hush money payments during the 2016 presidential campaign to a woman who alleged having an affair with Trump.
The committee said the documents and testimony it seeks relate to "the Trump administration's 'zero tolerance' policy and other family separation policies and practices; detention of children and families; and discussions about or offers of presidential pardons to Department of Homeland Security officials or employees."
