Witness in impeachment investigation asks federal judge to rule on testifying

A key witness in the House’s impeachment investigation filed a lawsuit Friday asking a judge to rule on whether he can testify to congressional investigators. The lawsuit by Charles Kupperman, who served as President Trump’s deputy NSA, comes after the White House declared that Trump had invoked ’constitutional immunity’ to bar Kupperman from appearing on Capitol Hill.

The legislature doesn't oversee the executive branch. They are co-equal branches of government. Executive privilege has to be considered as well as the legislature's investigative powers. This is precisely where the Judicial branch comes in.

This is either very smart or completely pointless. I can't tell which yet.

I wonder if the judge will be a Trump/Republican appointed judge or a judge that will uphold the law?

I can't imagine that the court would decide that the executive overrides the legislative, given that the subpoena is to support the legislative providing oversight of the executive. Its like "Internal affairs asked me to testify, but the police captain they're investigating told me not to. It's imposible to follow both orders!"
