Trump administration lawyer will ignore subpoena and not participate in the Dems’ Kangaroo Court.
Adam Schiff won’t be happy about this.
White House lawyer John Eisenberg said that despite being subpoenaed to appear, he will not show up for testimony in the House impeachment inquiry on Monday on instructions from President Trump.
White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter to William Burck, Eisenberg's attorney, on Sunday that the Justice Department had advised him that Eisenberg as a senior adviser to Trump is "absolutely immune from compelled congressional testimony with respect to matters related to his service as a senior adviser to the President."
"Accordingly, in order to protect the prerogatives of the Office of the President today and in the future, and in response to your request, the President directs Mr. Eisenberg not to appear at the Committee's deposition," Cipollone wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Hill.
Burck notified House committees on Monday that his client would not appear for a scheduled deposition that same day, according to another letter. Eisenberg had been issued a subpoena to compel his appearance on Friday.
