The Associated Press reports:
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has stood up Democrats in their impeachment inquiry, skipping his 10 a.m. deposition as Democrats wrap up closed-door interviews and move into a public phase of the investigation.
Democrats subpoenaed Mulvaney late Thursday as the White House signaled that he wouldn’t appear. The White House instructed its officials not to comply with the investigation, which is looking at President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.
An official working on the inquiry said the House intelligence panel subpoenaed Mulvaney because other testimony indicated he “could shed additional light on the president’s abuse of the power of his office for his personal gain.”
