House panel votes to subpoena Kushner and former attorney general Sessions

A House panel voted Thursday to subpoena 12 people with connections to President Trump, including his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and former attorney general Jeff Sessions, as part of an ongoing investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice or otherwise abused his office.

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.

1. I've been hoping they'd pull Sessions in

As much and as long as Trump has been slandering him, maybe he’s finally had enough and stop covering for his old boss. I hate Sessions but at least he had a sliver of integrity, or maybe just fear, and recused himself early on.
