BREAKING: White House intends to block former counsel from congressional testimony

ABCNews.GO.com:

The White House is expected to block the testimony of former White House counsel Donald McGahn before Congress about events relating to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The White House, along with McGahn’s personal counsel, are expected to notify House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., of the decision as early as Monday afternoon, sources told ABC News.

The article goes on to state the following:

Earlier this month, the White House instructed McGahn not to comply with a subpoena from House Democrats for documents related to Mueller’s investigation.

White House counsel Pat Cipollone argued at the time that “McGahn does not have the legal right to disclose these documents to third parties” and asked that instead of directing requests for documents to McGahn’s attorney, the committee direct the requests to the White House.

McGahn was a central figure in the Mueller report and cooperated extensively with the special counsel’s probe. He met with Mueller’s team multiple times for more than 30 hours and questioned more extensively than any other member of the White House staff who went in for an interview.
