Mulvaney moves for ruling on House impeachment probe subpoena

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick  Mulvaney is asking to join a pending lawsuit aimed at clarifying  whether the House of Representatives can require senior advisers to  President Donald Trump to testify in the ongoing impeachment probe  related to Ukraine.

Mulvaney’s move in a court filing late Friday night could breathe new life into the suit filed last month by former Deputy National Security Adviser Charles Kupperman.

Kupperman’s  attorneys billed the lawsuit not as a challenge to Congress’ authority  but as an effort to get a definitive ruling on whether the former Trump  aide should comply with a subpoena he received to testify before the  House Intelligence Committee or whether to abide by instructions from  the president not to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.
