The House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on "Presidential Obstruction of Justice and Abuse of Power" at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday. The hearing will feature testimony from Corey Lewandowski, former Campaign Manager for Donald Trump's 2016 Presidential Campaign. Rick Dearborn, former Trump campaign advisor and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff, and Robert Porter, former White House Staff Secretary, were also scheduled to testify, but neither will appear before the committee after the Office of Legal Counsel released opinions claiming that the pair were "immune from compelled congressional testimony." White House counsel Pat Cipollone also submitted a letter to committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler informing him that the White House has instructed Lewandoski "not to discuss the substance of any conversations he had with the President or senior Presidential advisers about official government matters, unless the information is expressly contained in the report."
