The announcement from the Judiciary Committee comes as lawmakers on that panel and the House Intelligence Committee are preparing to hear directly from Mueller himself next week for the first time about his almost two-year investigation into Russia's election interference, alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow, and whether the president obstructed justice.
White House senior adviser Jared Kushner (L), White House chief of staff John Kelly (C) and White House staf secretary Rob Porter look on after US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation calling for a national day of prayer on September 3 for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on September 1, 2017. The resolution would authorize Mr. Nadler to issue the subpoenas, but it doesn't automatically issue them. Mueller pointedly said he would have exonerated Trump if he could have.

The committee, under Democratic control, is likely to vote to issue these subpoenas, although Republicans on the committee are expected to dissent.

Sater worked with Cohen on the skyscraper deal before the 2016 election. Mueller wrote that there was not enough evidence to establish a conspiracy between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, but detailed extensive contacts between the two.
The project was later abandoned, and Cohen is now in prison, partly on charges that he lied to Congress about the duration of the project. When asked if he knew how much Trump knew of the project, he said he didn't know. Schiff said Tuesday that neither would appear this week but the panel was still in negotiations with both of them.
