House Panel Authorizes Subpoenas For Jared Kushner, Trump Officials

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday broadened its investigation into President Donald Trump and possible obstruction of justice, authorizing subpoenas to a dozen individuals that included the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

 

The committee also authorized subpoenas to current and former Trump administration officials related to the “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that led to the separation last year of migrant families who crossed the southern border illegally.

 

The vote was approved on party lines, 21-12.

 

Thursday’s dual subpoena authorizations signal the Judiciary Committee is ratcheting up its probes into the Trump administration ahead of the panel’s high-profile hearing next week with former special counsel Robert Mueller.

 

With the 12 subpoenas Thursday, the committee has now authorized subpoenas to 17 individuals in total.
