The report also indicated that Nadler is focused on President Trump's insistence that Lewandowski try to get then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) subpoenaed former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former White House official Rick Dearborn on Thursday, marking Democrats’ latest efforts to receive testimony from key figures in the Mueller report.
Nadler said he is seeking the public testimony on Sept. 17 from two individuals who were “prominently” involved in President Trump’s attempts to persuade then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to reverse his recusal from overseeing the Russia probe.
“Corey Lewandowski and Rick Dearborn were prominently featured in the Special Counsel’s description of President Trump’s efforts to obstruct justice by directing then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire the Special Counsel, and then by ordering him to lie about it,” Nadler said in a statement.
The announcement comes just hours before Lewandowski, who served as Trump’s first campaign manager in 2016 and remains among his most ardent allies, is slated to join the president in New Hampshire on Thursday amid mounting speculation he could mount a 2020 run against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).
