BREAKING via @kyledcheney: Judge says Don McGahn MUST testify to the House Judiciary Committee.

McGahn may still invoke privilege claims but is not "absolutely immune" from testifying. Case will surely be appealed and main quesiton is whether a stay is issued.
@kyledcheney !! Federal judge rules that Don McGahn must testify to House impeachment investigators: "The subpoenaed official does, as a matter of law, have a duty to respond notwithstanding any contrary order of the President."

The Trump admin is expected to appeal.
@kyledcheney The ruling that Don McGahn must testify could also have implications for other key witnesses, such as former NSA John Bolton who has refused to testify until a federal court weighs in on the conflict between Congress and the White House.
@kyledcheney Bill Burck, McGahn’s attorney, said the former White House counsel “will comply with Judge Jackson’s decision unless it is stayed pending appeal.”

@kyledcheney @dsamuelsohn @AndrewDesiderio @joshgerstein In the ruling, Judge Jackson writes that access to the Oval Office should be at most a "raincheck" not a "lifetime pass" from testifying and calls Trump's claim of absolute immunity a "fiction" that "simply does not exist."
@kyledcheney @dsamuelsohn @AndrewDesiderio @joshgerstein Judge Jackson: “Stated simply, the primary takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that Presidents are not kings.”

UPDATE: DOJ spox Kerri Kupec says “we will appeal the decision.”
