The White House will reportedly try and block a subpoena issued by the House Judiciary Committee that seeks to force former White House Counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress next month. The Trump administration plans to assert executive privilege in blocking McGahn's testimony, and will also fight other requests from lawmakers regarding information described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report. The subpoena gave McGahn until May 7 to hand over documents related to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn discussing sanctions with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak; President Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey; and possible pardons for Flynn, Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, and Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. The committee is investigating whether Trump obstructed justice.
