Home Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Thursday provided a subpoena for former Trump project supervisor Corey Lewandowski and former White Home official Rick Dearborn as part of the panel’s investigation into whether the president dedicated obstruction of justice and public corruption.
” Corey Lewandowski and Rick Dearborn were plainly included in the Unique Counsel’s description of President Trump’s efforts to block justice by directing then-White Home Counsel Don McGahn to fire the Special Counsel, and after that by purchasing him to lie about it,” Nadler said in a declaration.
Nadler has actually asked both men to appear for public testimony prior to his committee on September 17 th.
According to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on now-debunked collusion between the 2016 Trump project and Russia, Trump directed Lewandowski to asked then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit the scope of Mueller’s examination. Lewandowski did not make the demand of Sessions and instead asked Dearborn to call Sessions.
” Dearborn likewise said that being asked to serve as a messenger to Sessions made him unpleasant,” Mueller’s report states. “He recalled later on telling Lewandowski that he had dealt with the circumstance, however he did not in fact follow through with delivering the message to Sessions, and he did not keep a copy of the typewritten notes Lewandowski had actually given him.”
According to a source near Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign supervisor wants to affirm prior to the panel, reports ABC News.
The development comes in the middle of speculation that Lewandowski will reveal a bid for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire throughout President Donald Trump’s Thursday night campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire.
