The House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry into President Trump have requested to hear from a top adviser to acting chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN was first to report Tuesday.
The committees want to hear from Robert Blair, who serves as a senior adviser to Mulvaney as well as an assistant to President Trump. Blair was on the now-infamous call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which has formulated the basis of the House’s impeachment inquiry.
It is still unclear if Blair will voluntarily agree to testify and the committees are still in negotiations with the Mulvaney adviser regarding the request, CNN reported. The White House did not immediately return TPM’s request for comment.
