Senate panel authorizes subpoenas in Republican probe targeting Obama officials

A Senate committee voted to authorize more than three dozen subpoenas and depositions as part of a highly partisan, Republican-led investigation targeting former Obama administration officials’ role in the presidential transition period.

But in a last-minute twist, the GOP-controlled panel decided to scrap a separate vote authorizing a subpoena to U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia Bridget Brink as part of a different committee investigation centering on Joe and Hunter Biden.

Still, the vote represents a significant escalation of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s probes targeting President Donald Trump’s political foes — less than 50 days before Election Day.
