Jackson Lee: We can't have this. CHris Hayes: You have it. What are you going to do about it?

Just now RE people refusing to testify. CHris specifically asked what are you going to do about people refusing to answer or to testify? SHe didn't answer. SHe walked around how outrageous it was and said nothing about what they might do about it. I wish Chris had pushed the question. I wish all the media would.

Anyone have another viewpoint on this?

1. They are already in civil court for some of the no-shows

The rules generally require referral to the DOJ which we know will do nothing and then they go to the courts - but when they do so, they have to have all their ducks in a row.

But as a note - why would they tell their strategy to some teevee pundit?

House Judiciary Committee slaps Don McGahn with lawsuit to enforce subpoena

By ANDREW DESIDERIO

08/07/2019 03:13 PM EDT Updated 08/07/2019 05:59 PM EDT


The House Judiciary Committee asked a federal court on Wednesday to force one of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s star witnesses to testify on Capitol Hill over objections from the White House, a crucial move as House Democrats consider whether to bring articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

The Democrat-led panel filed a lawsuit to enforce a subpoena against former White House counsel Don McGahn, in a long-awaited effort to secure his testimony and defeat the White House’s efforts to block former top advisers from testifying about their West Wing tenure.

In a 54-page filing, the committee made clear that it is conducting an impeachment investigation, employing its strongest language to date to suggest that the panel is seriously weighing efforts to recommend Trump’s removal from office.

“McGahn is the Judiciary Committee’s most important fact witness in its consideration of whether to recommend articles of impeachment and its related investigation of misconduct by the president, including acts of obstruction of justice described in the special counsel’s report,” the filing states. The filing also touches on what Democrats believe is the urgent nature of the lawsuit, as they seek to persuade a federal judge to issue a swift ruling in order to expedite consideration of impeachment.
