House green-lights lawsuits against William Barr, Don McGahn over ignored subpoenas

E-mail Print PDF

William BarrThe House on Tuesday approved a measure authorizing the Judiciary Committee to take Attorney General William Barr to federal court to gain access to former special counsel Robert Mueller's unredacted report and underlying evidence.

The legislation also empowers Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) to begin legal proceedings to force former White House counsel Don McGahn to cooperate with the panel’s probe into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

It’s Democrats’ most aggressive step yet in their ongoing oversight battle with the Trump administration over withheld documents and witnesses — granting sweeping authority to committee chairs to sue the administration in federal court to enforce their subpoenas, including efforts to obtain Trump’s tax returns and haul Mueller’s witnesses to Capitol Hill.
