House urges judge to uphold Jan. 6 subpoena to top Trump aide Meadows
Nichols said he would rule “appropriately quickly.” The House subpoena will expire in January if Republicans prevail in November’s elections. In opposition, Terwilliger argued that such a balancing test would defeat the whole purpose of protecting frank, full and unvarnished communications among a president’s advisers. Meadows stance is a principled one, borne in part out of his respect for the necessity of maintaining the confidentiality of [presidential] communications and deliberations,” Terwilliger said. “We hope Mr. Meadows would say, ‘I have no valid grounds for not showing up. I will now do my patriotic duty and show up, and do what so many others have done,’ ” Letter said, saying the Jan. 6 committee has heard from hundreds of witnesses including Cabinet secretaries and White House counsel.washingtonpost.com

Judge again denies Graham's effort to skirt Georgia subpoena
A federal judge on Thursday ruled that constitutional protections don't shield U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham from testifying before a special grand jury investigating possible illegal efforts to overturn then-President Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss in Georgia.

The ruling does push Graham — one of Trump's top congressional allies and a key figure in the former president's postelection activities — one step closer to testifying before the special grand jury empaneled this year by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.news.yahoo.com
