Four Trump administration officials that were scheduled to testify Monday did not show up to the hearing scheduled in the House Intelligence Committee being commanded by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff.

The witnesses subpoenaed were the following:

  • Robert Blair, senior adviser to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney
  • Attorney John Eisenberg, lead lawyer for the National Security Council
  • Michael Ellis, Eisenberg’s deputy and senior associate counsel to the president
  • Mick Mulvaney, Chief-of-staff
  • Brian McCormack, associate director at the White House budget office

On Sunday, the House Intelligence issued their subpoenas to Ellis and Blair.

Blair’s lawyer did not respond to a request for comment by the Wall Street Journal. The Financial Times said that the lawyer cited that the White House had directed his client to not testify.

Ellis cited the White House directive and chose not to testify.

The committees subpoenaed Eisenberg and got a response from his attorney saying that he was “immune” as a senior adviser to the president from having to come to congressional deposition.

Two witnesses say that Eisenberg and Ellis took steps to hide the transcript of the phone call that President Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksy, reported by AP.

According to the testimony given by Alexander Vindman, the national security official who showed up to Schiff’s hearing last week, Eisenberg suggested moving the Trump-Zelenksy call to a secure electronic system.

This same system was put in place because of previous leaks to the media of phone calls with the President and other world leaders.

Pen Media reported that Vindman sought to alter the transcript at the time but was blocked in his attempt.
