BORDER/CHILDREN/IMMIGRATION/LEGAL/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “The House Judiciary Committee will vote this week to authorize a bevy of new subpoenas on the Trump administration’s practice of separating children from their families at the border and on President Trump’s possible obstruction of justice, summoning some of the biggest names to surface in Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation. The votes, scheduled for Thursday [7-11-19], will jolt two of the Democrats’ highest-profile oversight investigations into Mr. Trump and his administration, and are certain to further inflame relations with the White House. Among the targets are Jeff Sessions, the former attorney general; Michael T. Flynn, the president’s first national security adviser; John F. Kelly, the former White House chief of staff; Rod J. Rosenstein, the former deputy attorney general who appointed Mr. Mueller as the special counsel; Corey R. Lewandowski, Mr. Trump’s former campaign manager; and David J. Pecker, who as the head of American Media took part in a hush-money scheme.”
