House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) tore into ex-White House counsel Don McGahn for skipping his hearing in front of the committee on Tuesday morning.
During the brief 30-minute hearing, Nadler ripped the White House’s argument that McGahn has “absolute immunity” from House Democrats’ subpoenas.
“Our subpoenas are not optional,” Nadler said. “Mr. McGahn has a legal obligation to be here for this scheduled appearance. If he does not immediately correct his mistake, this committee will have no choice but to enforce the subpoena against him.”
