The Trump administration will fight subpoenas issued by Democrat-led House committees to former White House counsel Don McGahn and other ex-White House officials as Democrats seek more information about the Mueller report.
According to The Washington Post, the White House is trying to block the House Judiciary Committee from bringing McGahn in for testimony. McGahn was mentioned in special counsel Robert Mueller's report, a redacted version of which was made public last week.
Officials told the Post the White House will instruct people who are called to testify to assert executive privilege.
Among the more than 150 mentions of McGahn in the Russia report was one that showed he refused Trump's order to fire Mueller in the early days of the Russia probe. That has Democrats salivating and wanting to ask McGahn more about the incident.
Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler issued a subpoena to McGahn on Monday.
