Yep, the subpoena went out this morning and now the games begin. Via the New York Times:

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee formally issued a subpoena on Friday demanding that the Justice Department hand over to Congress an unredacted version of Robert S. Mueller III’s report and all of the evidence underlying it by May 1.

The subpoena, one of the few issued thus far by House Democrats, escalates a fight with Attorney General William P. Barr over what material Congress is entitled to see from the special counsel’s nearly two-year investigation. The chairman, Representative Jerrold Nadler of New York, asked for all evidence obtained by Mr. Mueller’s investigators, including summaries of witness interviews and classified intelligence.

“My committee needs and is entitled to the full version of the report and the underlying evidence consistent with past practice,” Mr. Nadler said in a statement. “Even the redacted version of the report outlines serious instances of wrongdoing by President Trump and some of his closest associates. It now falls to Congress to determine the full scope of that alleged misconduct and to decide what steps we must take going forward.”

Yesterday, Chairman Nadler held a press conference to admit he’d only skimmed the report. Now — less than 24 hours after its release — he's rushing to subpoena material that, by law, can't be shared outside @TheJusticeDept. My full statement: pic..com/XZhplwZTT1

From what can be read in the report, there were Russian measures to interfere in our election, yet Kris Kobach either chose to not disclose or was too inept to find them. He & the rest of his sham committee should be brought in front of congress to answer for these transgressions
