(THE HILL) – The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted to authorize a subpoena to compel the Justice Department to hand over special counsel Robert Mueller's full report to Congress, intensifying a power struggle with the Trump administration.
In a party-line vote, the committee voted 24-17 to approve a resolution authorizing subpoenas for Mueller's report, including accompanying exhibits and other attachments, as well as its underlying evidence. The resolution also authorizes the committee's Democratic chairman to subpoena testimony related to the special counsel's report.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said he would give Attorney General William Barr time to produce the final, unredacted report to Congress before issuing the subpoena; however he did not provide a timeline on when that would happen.
