President Trump doesn't want any current or former White House aides to testify in front of congressional panels in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report or other congressional oversight investigations, and House Democrats are considering fining officials personally if they deny or ignore subpoenas, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. The House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to former White House Counsel Don McGahn, but the White House reportedly plans to fight the effort. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) reportedly suggested holding officials in contempt of Congress and even threatening them with jail, in addition to hefty fines to "put teeth in" his party's numerous investigations. The White House has resisted demands for financial records and documents related to House queries.
