In advance of Friday’s much-anticipated hearing, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) assured acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker that he would not be subpoenaed on Friday.
The assurance came after an intense day of back and forth Thursday over whether Whitaker would testify voluntarily or under threat of subpoena.
During his opening remarks at Whitaker’s hearing, ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) revealed a late Friday letter from Nadler to Whitaker and called it a “full cave” by Nadler.
“We were informed around a certain time last night, about 7:00 last night, that an agreement had been made, and it was a full cave by the committee chairman. No subpoenas today. So everything that we did early in the day was a complete waste of time,” Collins said.
