Impeachment – a daily podcast: Before Public Testimony, a Look Behind the Closed Doors

Where are we on impeachment today?

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is expected to defy a congressional subpoena on Friday. He’s the latest in a long line of White House staffers to do so. A federal judge is expected to rule next month on whether Congress can demand testimony from staffers who have been ordered by the White House to withhold it. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich may have given incorrect testimony in her closed-door deposition last month. The issue at hand is whether she replied directly to an email from a House Foreign Affairs Committee staffer. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY1), who questioned Yovanovich over those contacts, retweeted a Fox News clip in which Tucker Carlson claims that the discrepancy amounts to perjury.
