In re: Don McGahn (also: Committee on the Judiciary, United States House of Representatives v. Donald F. McGahn II; U.S. House Judiciary Committee v. Donald F. McGahn)

Law School

In re: Don McGahn (also: Committee on the Judiciary, United States House of Representatives v. Donald F. McGahn II; U.S. House Judiciary Committee v. Donald F. McGahn) is a U.S. constitutional case lawsuit (1:19-cv-02379) filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia by the House Judiciary Committee to compel the testimony of former White House Counsel Donald F. McGahn, Jr. under subpoena. McGahn was put under subpoena to testify regarding his knowledge of the Russia investigation and Mueller Report and whether President Donald Trump's actions could constitute obstruction of justice. The case gained importance as the House launched impeachment proceedings against Trump regarding the Trump–Ukraine scandal. In April 2019, the House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed McGahn to testify before Congress about potential obstruction of justice on the part of the Trump administration. The administration directed McGahn to ignore the subpoena, claiming that he was "absolutely immune" from compelled congressional testimony. In August 2019, the Judiciary Committee sued McGahn to compel his testimony. On November 25, U.S. District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled that McGahn must testify, declaring that "no one is above the law," but allowed McGahn to invoke executive privilege on certain questions. Jackson's ruling said that the Justice Department's claim to "unreviewable absolute testimonial immunity" is "baseless, and as such, cannot be sustained". The ruling is laced with references to and quotes from the Founding Fathers of the United States and the Constitution's Framers. The case was appealed by the Department of Justice (DOJ), representing Don McGahn, and on November 26, the DOJ asked Jackson to put a temporary stay on her order so they could appeal it. The Justice Department requested a second stay pending an appeal of the ruling, but Judge Jackson rejected that request on December 2, calling the DOJ's assertion that the Judiciary Committee would not be harmed by a stay "disingenuous". In August 2020, the full US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 7-2 that the House of Representatives could sue to subpoena McGahn.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

Hunter Biden, Don McGahn, Michael Flynn but first: coronavirus

LRC Presents: All the President's Lawyers

Senate Republicans are trying to kick up dirt around Hunter Biden. Senator Ron Johnson is looking into Burisma and he wants to subpoena records from Andrii Telizhenkoo, a consultant to Burisma at the firm Blue Star Strategies. Democrats objected to this and called it a fishing expedition meant to hard President Trump’s political opponent. If Hunter Biden is subpoenaed, could he disobey? Could he delay? And if there are no specific allegations of criminal activity, could he assert his Fifth Amendment rights? And would it be a bad idea for Hunter Biden to agree to Donald Trump Jr.’s challenge to a debate? Yikes. When it comes to closing businesses, schools and canceling public events, what’s within the president’s authority? A DC circuit panel recently ruled for Don McGahn, the former White House Counsel, saying the court couldn’t involve itself in a dispute between two other branches of government. House Democrats want an en banc review of that case (to be heard by all of the DC Circuit judges), but after the McGahn ruling, a judge offered some advice to House Democrats in their separate efforts to obtain the president’s tax returns. It might not be the right advice. But, they did a little better this week in their legal pursuit of Mueller investigation grand jury materials. Plus: Michael Flynn, and wait, why does Donald Trump Jr. want to debate Hunter Biden?

Remember Don McGahn?

LRC Presents: All the President's Lawyers

Former White House Counsel Don McGahn sat for extensive interviews with Robert Mueller’s investigators, back when it was the White House strategy to be pretty cooperative. Well now, House Democrats would like to talk with him and they subpoenaed him for testimony. The White House told McGahn not to, so he did not. But, in the last week, a federal judge weighed in and said the court would not intervene in this fight between the two branches of government. This is a victory for the executive branch, which has been resisting subpoenas like this for many months. So now we’re back to the chicken-egg / impeachment-courts fight: Congress shouldn’t impeach without seeking a remedy in the courts, or, if the courts won’t enforce, then the congressional power of impeachment is the remedy. Well, okay. What’s next? Meanwhile: What’s the latest with Roger Stone? Why is the Trump campaign suing the New York Times and the Washington Post? Did a little DC wine bar have a chance when it sued the Trump hotel? And does a 105-year-old Supreme Court decision explain why Trump hasn’t pardoned his former associates?
