Subpoena scuffle divides Oversight committee

 

The House Committee on Oversight and Reform on Tuesday authorized Chairman Elijah Cummings to issue a subpoena for White House Personnel Security Director Carl Kline. The 22-to-15 party-line vote enables the committee to summon Kline to testify about its probe into the Trump administration's security clearance process. The subpoena was authorized along with those for Attorney General William Barr, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Gore, who are summoned to testify on the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.
