In a 7-2 decision, the D.C. Circuit holds that the House can use the courts to enforce subpoenas for executive branch information
A federal appeals court has upheld a House subpoena for testimony from President Donald Trump’s former White House counsel Don McGahn.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled Friday, 7-2, that McGahn must appear and testify, but the court left open the question of what questions the former close adviser to Trump will be required to answer from House Judiciary Committee lawmakers.
The Trump administration could ask the Supreme Court to step in to put the ruling on hold, which would head off the political spectacle of McGahn being called before a Democrat-led congressional panel before the November election.
