The House Judiciary Committee has voted to subpoena the full unredacted Mueller report. The committee approved a resolution to authorize subpoenaing the report in a 24-to-17 party-line vote early Wednesday. It also authorizes a subpoena for all underlying evidence and documents used in the investigation.

The measure gives chairman Jerry Nadler the authority to subpoena documents and testimony from individuals, who may have received documents from the White House related to the probe.

Before the vote, ranking member Doug Collins called the subpoena’s “preemptive,” and pointed out their targets are already cooperating. He also suggested the move seems like a counterintuitive way to conduct oversight.

“And as far as the attorney general’s gone, he said ‘I’m giving you the Mueller report…as I should under regulations’…but undoubtedly that’s not enough, undoubtedly that doesn’t make enough press releases,” stated Collins.

Chairman Nadler said he will give Attorney General William Barr time to comply with the panel before issuing that subpoena.
