The U.S. House Judiciary Committee said on Tuesday it would draw up a resolution this week authorizing subpoenas to compel testimony from a dozen current and former Trump administration officials, including the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The committee said in a statement it would meet on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for a string of high-profile officials, including White House aide Kushner, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

The chairman of the Democratic-controlled committee, Representative Jerrold Nadler, said the subpoenas were part of the panel’s “ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption and abuse of power by the president and his associates.”

Nadler said the panel was open to a “reasonable accommodation” with the witnesses and would “not issue subpoenas if the information we are seeking is voluntarily provided.”

“We will get answers one way or the other,” he said in a statement.

The Dimwits – as in Nadler, et al – STILL have not found out or figured out WHY they were elected to their cushy jobs. NO civilian company could operate like the House of Representatives has since January 2017 and remain in business. Time to go in with a big broom or a vacuum and get rid of that whole worthless bunch of Leftist taxpayer parasites.

Obviously NEED to vote STRAIGHT Republican in 2020!

Jared Kushner: “Yes, Commission Chairman Nadler. I will answer all of your questions the best that I can.”

Jared Kushner: A: “I am confused.”
