Don McGahn told by Trump not to testify before Congresss

President Donald Trump on Monday directed former White House counsel Don McGahn not to comply with a subpoena to testify about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report, intensifying a clash between the Trump administration and the House Democrats who subpoenaed McGahn to appear.

In a 15-page legal memo from the Department of Justice and a separate letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., Trump administration legal officials argued that McGahn has “immunity” under the law from being compelled to testify.

“Because of this constitutional immunity, and in order to protect the prerogatives of the Office of the Presidency, the President has directed Mr. McGahn not to appear at the Committee’s scheduled hearing,” Trump’s counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in the letter to Nadler.
