The head of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for documents related to allegations that President Trump promised pardons to officials who carry out orders connected to construction of a wall at the southern border that could be illegal.

Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) asked Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan in the subpoena to provide documents related to two meetings in March and April of this year between Trump and DHS officials where the topic of pardons reportedly came up, giving him a deadline of Sept. 17.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The dangling of pardons by the President to encourage government officials to violate federal law would constitute another reported example of the President’s disregard for the rule of law,” Nadler said in a statement.

The Washington Post in September reported that Trump had offered pardons to officials should they break the law to get border barriers built more quickly, reportedly telling officials when discussing the wall: “Don’t worry, I’ll pardon you.” At the time, a White House official did not deny that Trump had made the remarks, but said he was joking.
