President Donald Trump’s allies in the House and Senate are ramping up investigations aimed at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and some of his former Obama administration colleagues that are likely to reach a crescendo in the middle of the election campaign.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham on Thursday set up a vote following the Memorial Day recess to give him sweeping authority to subpoena numerous former Obama-era officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch as well as ex-FBI director James Comey as part of his panel’s review of the origins of the investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign’s role.
