"Executive privileges are always an option, it's always on the table, but Don McGahn has already sworn allegiance for 30 hours, and that's just harassment from the president," Conway said to CNN's Jake Tapper about "State of the Union". In addition, Trump's "right" to use power.
Soon after the subpoena was issued, CNN learned that The White House may try to prevent McGahn from sticking to it. One source familiar with the idea said that the president could assert executive executive rights on certain issues when McGahn testified, but noted that discussions are not yet so far advanced, adding that there are other measures would be considered.
McGahn's testimony is still under negotiation with the committee and could be an important test case for the committee's wider investigation into possible corruption, abuse of power and obstruction of the judiciary, which is likely to seek interviews with numerous White House officials.
The summons demands documents until May 7 and McGahn's statement on May 21.
