Has been imposed.
Steven Benn was suspected of having links between the White House and Trump supporters who attacked Capitol Hill.
The committee investigating the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill summoned Benn, 67, on September 23. Steve Benn said he would not testify until the issue of administrative privilege was resolved.

Trump has argued in court that his advisers are exempt from appearing for testimony, while the documents the committee has sought from his administration have legal protection.
