Democrats Subpoena Jared Kushner, Trump Officials
Pledge to Vote for President Trump
The vote comes as desperate Democrats continue their partisan investigation into whether or not President Trump obstructed justice.
Per the Washington Post:
The vote along party lines by the House Judiciary Committee was the latest escalation in a battle between the Democratic-led chamber and the White House over multiple probes of Trump and his administration, including looking at whether the president sought to obstruct the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
"We will not rest until we obtain their testimony and documents so this committee and Congress can do the work the Constitution and the American people expect of us," Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said at the outset of Thursday's hearing.
Trump lashed out at Democrats ahead of the planned vote, suggesting that they should focus on immigration issues instead.
"Now the Democrats have asked to see 12 more people who have already spent hours with Robert Mueller, and spent a fortune on lawyers in so doing," Trump wrote on Twitter. "How many bites at the apple do they get before working on Border Loopholes and Asylum."
