A federal judge ruled Monday that former White House counsel Don McGahn must comply with a subpoena from House Democrats. In a 120-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson rejected the administration’s argument that White House officials are exempt from testifying based on presidential immunity. “With respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist,” she wrote.
