House votes to enforce subpoenas for Trump administration officials

The full House of Representatives voted Tuesday on a civil contempt resolution to enforce the congressional subpoenas of the Trump administration.

The resolution passed by a vote of 229-191, with 13 people not recording a vote.

The House Judiciary Committee voted in May to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena to provide the full unredacted report by special counsel Robert Mueller. President Trump has exerted executive privilege over the entire report.

Former White House counsel Don McGahn defied a subpoena to testify before the committee in May at Mr. Trump's direction.
