The White House has directed officials not to testify at the following upcoming closed door depositions.

# November 5

**Wells Griffith, director of international energy and environment at the National Security Council.**Investigators requested testimony, expectation is that he will not comply.

**Michael Duffey WH OMB**.Subpoenaed by the House impeachment investigators to give a deposition on Nov. 5. Duffey had declined to appear when asked voluntarily to appear for a deposition.

Subpoenaed to testify Nov. 6. Did not appear previously when asked to give a voluntary deposition. Expectation is that he will not comply.

**Rick Perry, outgoing Department of Energy Secretary**Set up the July 25 phone call between Trump and Zelensky, has been asked to testify . Department of Energy said Perry would “not partake in a secret star chamber inquisition where agency counsel is forbidden to be present.”

Requested to testify. Neither Bolton or his mustache have commented publicly on the request.

# November 8

  1. Notable difference this week: According to reports, Pence Sr. Advisor Jennifer Williams *is expected to* testify on Thursday. She was listening in on Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president. Her testimony could be crucial to implicating Pence in the quid pro quo.
