Whitaker agrees to testify before Congress after saying he wouldn’t if under subpoena threat
Democrats on the committee showed no inclination to accommodate Whitaker’s demands, and some urged Nadler to respond with an immediate subpoena.
“Get him under subpoena, bring him to our hearing, and ask him questions and demand answers — and then take him to court if he does not answer those questions,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.).
“What he’s trying to do is play out the clock . . . and then maybe he thinks he’s off the hook of having to appear,” Johnson continued. “But I think he’ll be badly mistaken about that.”
