The battle lines are being drawn over the fight that could decide the fate of Donald Trump’s Presidency.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats filed the one lawsuit that Trump White House insiders fear most.
And now the Supreme Court will be faced with one decision that could impeach Donald Trump.
House Democrats filed a lawsuit to compel the testimony of former White House Counsel Don McGahn.
McGahn spoke to Mueller for nearly 30 hours, and his testimony formed the basis of Volume II of the Mueller report — which put forth Mueller’s case for obstruction of justice.
The White House blocked McGahn’s testimony on the grounds of executive privilege.
But Democrats can compel McGahn to testify if there is an impeachment inquiry, and for the first time the Democrats admitted there was an open impeachment inquiry.
The Daily Caller reports:
The House Judiciary Committee took a decisive step toward impeachment proceedings Wednesday, filing a lawsuit in federal court to force former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before the panel.
McGahn’s testimony is essential to an ongoing impeachment inquiry, congressional lawyers wrote in court filings, since he is the primary witness to the president’s alleged attempts to obstruct former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“The Judiciary Committee is conducting oversight and hearings, including assessing whether to exercise its Article I power to recommend articles of impeachment against the president, including those articles already referred to the Judiciary Committee, and considering significant remedial legislation and amendments to existing laws,” congressional lawyers wrote.
“But the Judiciary Committee cannot fulfill these constitutional responsibilities without full access to critical evidence, including testimony from McGahn, who was a key witness to many of the most egregious obstructive acts described in the special counsel’s report,” they added.
Most Americans moved on from the Mueller Report after Mueller’s disastrous testimony.
But Democrats believe McGahn will provide the type of compelling testimony and visuals that can jump start their impeachment push.
