A White House official told CNN Monday that it would review Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) request to subpoena key former and current White House aides for testimony in the impending Senate impeachment trial.
The news came in while Schumer sat for an interview on CNN’s “New Day” Monday morning.
“Good,” Schumer responded. “It’s different than some of the tweets that just say ‘show trial,’ ‘everything’s perfect,’ et cetera.”
