House Democrats Authorize Subpoenas for Top Current and Former Trump Admin Officials

HeadlineJul 12, 2019

Congressional Democrats have approved subpoenas for 12 witnesses to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, including President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner. Also on the list are a number of former Trump administration officials: ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and former White House staff secretary Rob Porter. The Judiciary Committee also approved subpoenas for executives of American Media, Inc., publisher of the National Enquirer. The tabloid infamously helped Donald Trump make hush money payments to two women who alleged they’d had sexual affairs with him.
