Instead, his attorneys told a federal judge Tuesday morning that he planned to obey the White House's instructions and justice so he would not testify.
Mulvani's move on Tuesday concludes with a court-martial that Mulvani began legally repossessing on Friday after failing to appear for his summoned testimony in the House.
On Friday, he tried to skip the case of another former national security officer, asking the court for guidance, which surprised and attracted opposition from former national security adviser John Bolton, another key witness from whom the Chamber tried to hear.
The route of lawsuits is one that could promise a pause for Mulvaney in political pressure as the House enters the late stages of their impeachment investigation. The case that Mulvani wanted to join, which concerns witness Charles Copperman, may not have been resolved until mid-December.
Mulvani has tried to ask the court for help as a way to keep neglect, according to his legal arguments over the past four days. He said he could not choose to comply with his summons in the House and the White House's instruction that he was immune from testimony.
