Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) said Sunday that it would be to President Trump’s advantage to have attorneys present at this week’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing.

“That is his right, but I can also understand how he is upset at the illegitimate process that we saw unfold in the Intelligence Committee,” McClintock, who sits on the Judiciary panel, said on ABC’s “This Week.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The California Republican also said he thinks having former National Security Adviser John Bolton and acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney testify could work in the president’s favor, but he understands why the president and the White House are ordering them not to appear.

McClintock said, “Of course, he has to weigh that against the enormous, catastrophic damage that would do to the doctrine of executive privilege.”
