BREAKING: Federal judge rules Don McGahn must comply with House subpoena, but can assert legal privileges during his testimony when appropriate. huffpost.com/entry/don-mcga…
JUDGE JACKSON: "To make the point as plain as possible, it is clear to this Court for the reasons explained above that, with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist.” huffpost.com/entry/don-mcga…
Jackson says OLC opinions that say senior-level aides don’t have to show up "do not themselves constitute legal precedents and are manifestly inconsistent with the constitutional jurisprudence of the Supreme Court and the D.C. Circuit in many respects.” huffpost.com/entry/don-mcga…
