REPORT: Trump orders two ex-White House aides not to testify at House hearing


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump has ordered two former White House aides not to testify at a House of Representatives committee hearing on Tuesday as the panel considers whether to recommend impeaching Trump.

Former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn and former White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter were subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee to appear at the hearing on possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The President has directed Mr. Dearborn and Mr. Porter not to appear at the hearing,” White House Counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the committee’s chairman, Democrat Jerrold Nadler.

According to the report, the Justice Department determined that Dearborn and Porter “are absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony” over matters related to their President-related service.
