On June 11, the House of Representatives will consider a resolution to enable committee chairs to seek judicial enforcement of subpoenas with only the approval of a panel of House leadership, rather than the vote of the full House, Politico reports. The draft resolution specifically names Attorney General Bill Barr and White House counsel Don McGahn, but is not constrained to subpoenas directed toward them. It is available here and below.
