Mick Mulvaney dropped out of class action lawsuit

The acting White House chief of staff will independently seek a court decision on whether he should testify before House committees.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Monday withdrew his nomination from a class-action lawsuit seeking a court ruling on whether witnesses summoned under a house subpoena should testify in an impeachment investigation or not. Instead, Mick Mulvaney will file his lawsuit, court documents say.

Earlier, the acting chief of staff of the White House planned to take part in the trial initiated by Charles Cooperman, former Deputy national security adviser John Bolton, who wants to get the court to decide whether he should comply with the requirement of American lawmakers and testify to the House of Representatives or comply with the Trump administration’s order not to testify.
