Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee have filed a motion to expedite the panel’s lawsuit seeking to enforce a subpoena against former White House counselor Don McGahn.
In the new court filings, counsels for the lawmakers claim that the panel’s investigation has been severely delayed and diminished as a result of the White House’s stonewalling and refusal to comply with document requests related to committee’s oversight efforts.
Democrats on the Judiciary panel asked a federal judge in the District of Columbia to grant declaratory and injunctive relief by declaring that McGahn’s refusal to comply with the panel’s subpoena is “unlawful.”
