A U.S. district judge denied the Justice Department’s request for a stay on testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn.
U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson wrote in a 17-page opinion that a long-term stay on her opinion last week requiring McGahn testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee could cause “grave harm” to the investigation.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This Court has no doubt that further delay of the Judiciary Committee’s enforcement of its valid subpoena causes grave harm to both the Committee’s investigation and the interests of the public more broadly,” Jackson wrote.
The Hill further noted that Judge Jackson, an Obama appointee, “also decided to remove a temporary stay she agreed upon last week while the case moved up to the U.S. Court of Appeals. The Justice Department was advocating for a long-term stay.”
