White House budget employee Mark Sandy is expected to appear in a closed-door hearing on Saturday before the House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry. He would be the first official from the Office of Management and Budget to testify in the inquiry.
Sandy’s testimony could help explain the alleged withholding of military aid to Ukraine for several months, a process in which the Office of Mangement and Budget played a role. He was not appointed by President Trump, unlike other budget officials who have refused to testify.
Sandy’s lawyer said that he would appear if subpoenaed. White House counsel Pat Cipollone told Congress in September that the White House would not cooperate with the impeachment inquiry, and the Office of Management and Budget declined to participate.
