WASHINGTON — The House approved a resolution Tuesday to authorize the House Judiciary Committee and other panels to go to court to enforce their subpoenas of the Trump administration.

The measure, which was adopted 229-191 along party lines, allows the Judiciary Committee to sue Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn for refusing to comply with its subpoenas related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

Judiciary Committee Democrats have been seeking the unredacted version of Mueller’s report and underlying evidence from Barr as well as documents and testimony from McGahn, a key figure in the report.

TheWashington Examiner also reported:

It’s a move by Democrats to try to hold the Trump administration accountable in court for what they believe has been significant stonewalling in the face of a broad array of House investigations.

Democrats are threatening to hold uncooperative Trump administration officials and former officials with a criminal contempt citation if they continue to fail to cooperate, but they refrained from taking that step Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is not political, it’s constitutional. It’s about separation of powers,” Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said before the vote. “It’s about responsibility, it’s about accountability.”

“The House is exercising its responsibility to uncover all the facts and discover the truth on behalf of the American people,” he added.
