Former White House Don McGahn case appealed after judge
Former White House counsel Don McGahn, through Justice Department attorneys, has appealed a federal judge's decision that he must comply with a congressional subpoena. The expected appeal comes after Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled Monday night demanding that McGahn testify before the House Judiciary Committee, rejecting the administration's claims of absolute executive privilege.
On Monday, Jackson wrote that "the primary takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that presidents are not kings." White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said the ruling "contradicts longstanding legal precedent established by administrations of both political parties.
