He continued: the redaction appear to be significant. We have so far seen none of the actual evidence that the Special Counsel developed to make this case.

Nadler teased the subpoena on Good Morning America on Friday, saying that he expected to issue the legal inquiry withing a couple hours.

The request comes one day after the redacted report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was released, which failed to prosecute Donald Trump on obstruction of justice, but did not exonerate the president.
