A House committee authorized issuing subpoenas to the White House for records and documents tied to the use of private texts and emails for official business by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and other officials.

Representative Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee accused Democrats on the panel of seeking a way Thursday to rebound from the “total bust” of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s House testimony the previous day. All 23 Democrats on the committee voted in favor of issuing the subpoenas, and all 16 Republicans opposed the action.
