The Joe Biden government and the House Democrats reached a tentative agreement on Tuesday.
Washington— According to a court document, the Joe Biden administration and House Democrats reached an interim agreement on Tuesday afternoon to allow President Donald J. Trump’s White House aide Donald F. McGahn II to testify in Congress about special Lampe’s efforts to thwart the Russian investigation.
The agreement seems likely to avoid setting clear precedents in the courts and thus draw a line in ambiguous areas: Congress must compel someone to testify about their oversight responsibilities and the president’s constitutional powers. The scope and limitations of the constitutional powers and White House lawyers Keep the conversation secret.
The Court of Appeals will hear the case next week, although attorneys from the Justice Department have been defending McGahn since 2019 to prevent the House of Representatives from subpoenaing McCann to force him to testify. Representatives of the House of Representatives requested the court through a joint letter. Repeal the plan proposed in the agreement.
Biden’s White House lawyers have been hesitant to set a precedent that the Republicans can one day use to force them to testify on their internal affairs.
The two sides have been negotiating for several months, which has delayed the case in the Court of Appeal.
