Only days ago Dowd told congressional investigators that his clients would not cooperate in their impeachment inquiry. But beyond that blanket resistance, he said that there were specific issues that would make any discussion of cooperation take a long time untangle. The key one was attorney/client privilege. With the client being the President of the United States.
