Don McGahn Has To Either Hurt Trump Or Hurt Himself

Gerald Nadler said today that the House Judiciary Committee will again subpoena former White House counsel Don McGahn within a week and probably end up forcing his testimony through the courts.
The bs coming from the Republicans the other day about how much Trump has co-operated with the investigations notwithstanding, there is little doubt that Trump has threatened McGahn with repercussions if he spills the beans to Congress.
Don McGahn told Mueller's investigation the details of Trump's attempts to obstruct justice. He told them under oath. So McGahn cannot go in front of the Judiciary committee and say something else, or disavow his previous statements without facing a perjury charge.
McGahn may very well want to lie for Trump, but he won't be able to. Hence the weeks and months drag by as it all has to be hashed out in court.
This is Trump and the Republicans idea of completely co-operating with the investigation.
