White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has requested a legal clarification on whether he can refuse a House Democrats subpoena under executive privilege, the N.Y. Post reported.

The House has subpoenaed the man who had been alleged to be a part of holding up a reported $390 million in military funding in exchange for Ukraine's investigation into corruption allegations levied against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Mulvaney "was directed by the president not to comply with the subpoena, after the president obtained an opinion from the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel concluding that close personal advisors of the president, like Mr. Mulvaney, are immune from congressional process," the court filing read, per the report.

Mulvaney had been subpoenaed to testify Friday, but did not.

House Democrats have threatened to hold Mulvaney in contempt.
