House Dems Drop The Hammer On Trump With Latest Subpoenas

trump-is-screwed

The House Judiciary Committee issued two subpoenas on Thursday to former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former White House aide Rick Dearborn, both of whom will have to testify about Donald Trumps alleged efforts to interfere in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

According to Politico, the House Judiciary Committee wants to question Lewandowski about Trump’s efforts to get him to convince former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to un-recuse himself from overseeing Mueller’s investigation.

According to Mueller’s report, Trump instructed Lewandowski to order Sessions to limit the scope of Mueller’s probe to investigating future Russian efforts to interfere in American elections. Lewandowski was reluctant to carry out this instruction and asked Dearborn to do it for him.

Dearborn, however, also declined to give this message to Sessions.

“Corey Lewandowski and Rick Dearborn were prominently featured in the special counsel’s description of President Trump’s efforts to obstruct justice by directing then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire the special counsel, and then by ordering him to lie about it,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said in a statement announcing the subpoenas.
