Mulvaney to file impeachment suit
White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney plans to file his own lawsuit over testimony in the House impeachment inquiry, withdrawing his bid to join a separate case filed last month by a former Trump adviser.
The plans were revealed in a court filing in which Mulvaney abandoned his earlier request to become part of a suit by Charles Kupperman, President Donald Trump’s former deputy national security adviser.
Lawyers for Mulvaney had asked Friday to join that lawsuit, saying his case presented similar legal issues to that of Kupperman. But they switched course after a federal judge said Monday he was not inclined to grant the request.
