DOJ vows appeal after judge orders ex-White House counsel Don McGahn to appear before Congress

DOJ vows appeal after judge orders ex-White House counsel Don McGahn to appear before Congress | 25 Nov 2019 | Former White House counsel Don McGahn must appear before Congress pursuant to a subpoena issued earlier this year, a Washington, D.C. federal judge ruled late Monday, in a major setback to President Trump's effort to keep aides from testifying before House impeachment investigators. If McGahn wanted to assert executive privilege to avoid testifying, Obama-appointed U.S. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled, he would need to appear before Congress and do it himself, likely on a question-by-question basis... A senior Justice Department official told Fox News the department would appeal Judge Jackson's decision and seek a stay pending that appeal.
