Mulvaney scraps subpoena lawsuit plans

Tuesday, 12. November 2019 17:07

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney had a change of heart on Tuesday as he decided not to file a lawsuit concerning his compliance with a subpoena issued for his congressional testimony as part of the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump.

According to his lawyers, Mulvaney "does not intend to pursue litigation" in relation to the subpoena issued by the House of Representatives, despite him previously trying to join the one filed by Charles Kupperman, a former White House national security advisor, who also defied the House subpoena. The acting chief of staff, his attorneys said, decided instead to "rely on the direction of the President" and not appear for the deposition at all.
