The top Democrat on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee said Tuesday he plans to have a subpoena ready just in case Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker tries to dodge "uncomfortable questions" when he testifies before the panel on Friday. "To be clear, I hope never to use this subpoena," Chairman Jerrold Nadler said, adding that Whitaker should arrive at the hearing on Friday prepared to answer questions about his communications with the White House and his refusal to recuse himself from overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
