White House Counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter Tuesday to the House Judiciary Committee that President Donald Trump may wish to assert executive privilege over the documents the panel is seeking from former counsel Don McGahn.

At the same time, Trump’s Justice Department is pushing back against a separate subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee for the full, unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday defended her decision to delay the Senate impeachment trial as the House prepares to formally transfer the two articles.

One of the articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon was based on ignoring subpoenas from Congress, the speaker said Tuesday during an event at Cornell University.

“That could be part of an impeachable offense” against Trump, Pelosi said. “Every day he’s obstructing justice by saying this one should testify, that one shouldn’t testify.”

The Trump administration has been rebuffing House Democrats’ demands for testimony and documents, with Trump saying last month that “we’re fighting all the subpoenas.”

The White House gave McGahn permission to speak with Mueller.

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed McGahn last month with a Tuesday deadline to comply with the records request. Cipollone told the committee to redirect its subpoena to the White House. His letter said White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney instructed McGahn not to hand over the records.

A lawyer for McGahn, William Burck, said he told his client to honor the White House request, unless the committee and Trump administration reach an agreement.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York, in a letter to Burck on Tuesday, said “given that there has been neither an actual assertion of executive privilege, nor an individualized showing that the privilege would apply to the subpoenaed records, the committee continues to insist on compliance with the subpoena.”

Nadler added that “I fully expect the committee will hold Mr. McGahn in contempt if he fails to appear before the committee, unless the White House secures a court order directing otherwise.”

Attorney General William Barr missed a separate deadline on Monday to comply with the Judiciary panel subpoena for the the full Mueller report on Russian election-meddling and the Trump campaign. After Nadler scheduled a vote to hold Barr in contempt, the Justice Department agreed to hold further talks Tuesday on the dispute.

After the meeting, panel Democrats indicated the vote was likely to go ahead as planned. “Right now all systems go for the contempt hearing,” Representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland told reporters. “We remain unanimously determined on our side of the aisle to get the unredacted report as we’ve demanded.”

The House Intelligence Committee is also pursuing the unredacted Mueller report. The panel’s ranking Republican, Devin Nunes, joined Chairman Adam Schiff in threatening to subpoena the report if the Justice Department hasn’t complied with its request.

The House is justified in seeking the full Mueller report “in order to exercise all of the powers of Congress, including impeachment,” Pelosi said at Cornell.

Pelosi said following “the facts and the law” will lead Congress to the correct action to take in response to Trump’s actions documented in the Mueller report. She said any case against Trump must be built not only in congressional committees, but also in the court of public opinion.

“He is just trying to goad us into impeachment, and wherever you go, I say to my colleagues — whatever it is, be ready," the California Democrat said.
