The House has passed a civil contempt resolution that allows committees to sue the Trump Administration and enforce Congressional subpoenas. 

The vote authorizes the Judiciary Committee to go to court to compel Attorney General William Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn to turn over documents and testify before Congress. 

The White House instructed them and others not to comply with Congressional subpoenas.

"All they do is waste time on these investigations where there's no obstruction, no collusion, no nothing. In the meantime, they can't get a border deal done, they can't do anything," says President Trump.

The passed resolution also empowers committee chairmen to take legal action to enforce subpoenas in the future without a vote of the full House, so long as they have approval from a bipartisan group of House leaders.

The votes aren't technically necessary, as Democrats already can go to court. But a House vote will give them increased standing if they do decide to file lawsuits.

"Given this potential breakthrough, we will hold the criminal contempt for Attorney General Barr in abeyance, for now," says Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

The Democrats will continue to explore the findings of the Mueller Report during a House Intelligence Committee hearing Wednesday. Congressman Adam Schiff says the goal is to look at the extent of Russian meddling detailed in the Mueller Report and the implications it has on our national security.
