WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee said on Monday an impeachment inquiry would be warranted if former White House counsel Don McGahn does not respond to a congressional subpoena to testify before the panel.

“In face of a president and a White House that is attempting in every way to impede our access to information ... we may well be forced into a position to have to open a formal inquiry in order to facilitate the collection of the evidence that we need to see,” Representative David Cicilline told MSNBC.
