House Judiciary votes to subpoena Mueller’s full report

The House Judiciary Committee voted along party lines on Wednesday to subpoena special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report and underlying evidence uncovered over the course of the two-year-long federal Russia investigation.

In a 24-17 vote, the committee, led by Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., also authorized itself to issue subpoenas for testimony and documents from former top White House officials, including Don McGahn, Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Reince Priebus, and Ann Donaldson, related to their preparation for testimony before the special counsel’s team.

Any privileges given to the Trump administration aides and their documents have been waived, according to Nadler.

“We are dealing now, not with the president’s private affairs, but with a sustained attack on the integrity of the republic by the president and his closest advisers. This committee requires the full report and the underlying materials because it is our job, not the attorney general’s, to determine whether or not President Trump has abused his office,” Nadler said during his opening statement.
