Former White House counsel Don McGahn is "obligated" to follow President Donald Trump's instructions not to testify before a House panel, his lawyer said in a statement late Monday. "Mr. McGahn remains obligated to maintain the status quo and respect the president's instruction," attorney William Burck said. "In the event an accommodation is agreed between the committee and the White House, Mr. McGahn will of course comply with that accommodation." The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed McGahn to testify in a hearing scheduled for Tuesday regarding special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. House Democrats have suggested they may hold McGahn in contempt if he fails to appear.
