The Inquiry: Judge denies “absolute immunity” of White House


In a court victory for House Democrats, a federal judge ruled that former White House counsel Don McGahn must comply with a congressional subpoena. As expected, the Department of Justice has already filed an appeal seeking a stay. It’s unlikely McGahn will appear on the Hill anytime soon. However, legal analysts have speculated that this ruling could clear the way for other high value witnesses in the impeachment inquiry to testify. Politico Senior Writer Jake Sherman, Washington Post White House Reporter Ashley Parker, Executive Director of the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection Joshua Geltzer and New York University Constitutional Law Professor Rick Pildes join Katy Tur.
