President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the president "is doing the right thing" by ignoring congressional subpoenas.

"There are six different investigations...thousands of requests for documents, it's like they're falling all over themselves," Giuliani said of House Democrats who are probing the Trump administration.

The White House this week rejected a House Judiciary Committee subpoena for documents related to communications between the president and former White House counsel Don McGahn; former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's resignation; former FBI Director James Comey's firing; the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting; and any communications on the potential firing of special counsel Robert Mueller, among other topics.

Others in the Trump administration have also not complied with subpoenas in recent weeks. On Friday, the Treasury Department refused to turn over President Trump's tax returns. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said in a letter that the House Ways and Means Committee subpoena "lacks a legitimate legislative purpose."
