13. The obstructors have not once invoked Executive Privilege

Only vague, non-existent concepts like "executive immunity" or "constitutional privilege". Therefore, they are all in violation of there subpeonas (and in cases where they were testifying voluntarily, they should be subpoenaed ).

The Trump administration should be forced to formally exert Executive Privilege so that it can be challenged in court, and penalties applied to those who defy court orders.

Of course, if these subpeonas were part of an impeachment inquiry, Executive Privilege would not apply.

I get that these things take time, but Congress is in recess for the majority of the summer- with the Constitution at stake, it can't be business as usual. These delay tactics should be defeated with utmost urgency, not a casual "we'll get around to it after Labor Day". Subpeonas and contempt hearings should be happening daily, not every other week.
