The DOJ Has Requested For 2 White House Lawyers To Testify In Court

Cippollone and Philbin have both neglected to respond to the request of their testimonies.

The Justice Department has requested for a federal judge to force the main two lawyers from former President Trump’s White House counsel office to testify about their conversations between them and Trump.

The request would force additional testimony from former White House counsel, Pat Cipollone and deputy White House counsel, Patrick Philbin.

Trump has previously fought to prevent former advisers testifying before a criminal grand jury regarding certain conversations. He argued executive and attorney-client privileges in attempt to keep information confidential or slow down investigations.

Despite Trump’s prevention attempts, the DOJ successfully secured answers from top vice presidential advisers, Greg Jacob and Marc Short which could allow investigators to dig deeper into Trump’s inner circle.

Cippollone and Philbin have both neglected to respond to the request of their testimonies.
