H3 house judiciary committee sue trump administration barr mcgahn mueller subpoena

House lawmakers voted Tuesday to authorize the Judiciary Committee to sue the Trump administration in federal court to enforce subpoenas for former White House counsel Don McGahn and Attorney General William Barr. Lawmakers are seeking documents and testimony from McGahn related to the Mueller inquiry and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump. The committee will hold off for now on enforcing Barr’s subpoena, after the Justice Department agreed Monday to hand over some of the underlying evidence from the Mueller report.
