Wellllll... Refusing a subpoena isn't against "the law" because the Executive branch has the right to privilege. The powers of privilege and oversight have historically been argued in the judiciary many times in the history of the government. In the end they're going to have to go to the SCOTUS, and I'm quite certain that the court is going to uphold the Executive's right to privilege. The House is either going to have to issue subpoenas out of the committee's or have a full vote on the floor. I don't see the SCOTUS upholding the idea that Pelosi has the unitary authority to start an impeachment. Pelosi's a smart veteran legislator, so I think she knows that, which would explain why the requests for testimony have either come out of committee or in the form of letters of request for "voluntary compliance" with no legal authority. This is gonna get complicated as all fuck, and it's just gonna piss people off.
