Four top White House officials who were supposed to testify for the House’s impeachment inquiry Monday declined to appear.
John Eisenberg, the top lawyer at the National Security Council, failed to show up on Capitol Hill for his scheduled deposition time. He is believed to have made the call to lock down records of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a special system.
Congress can vote to hold a person "in contempt" if that person refuses to testify, won't provide information requested by the House or the Senate, or obstructs an inquiry by a congressional committee.
Part of civil disobedience is paying the price for that disobedience What do you think the odds are these high officials will wind up in jail?
