I’m almost certain they will appeal like the cowards that they are, but eventually justice will always prevail.
“Federal judge rules former White House counsel Don McGahn must testify, rejecting all 3 of DOJ’s arguments and finding that “the claim that a President’s senior-level aides have absolute testimonial immunity is meritless.”
I’ll bet I’ll be shocked again when I find out who appointed this judge? Nope…it was Obama. There appears to be a pattern here where each time a judge rules against the Executive Branch, they were appointed by a D POTUS.
“Now, this is what you need to understand, a president must be able to have legal advice. Must be able to have legal advice without Congress interfering,” Levin said. “Whether it’s an impeachment proceeding or any other proceeding. Otherwise, there’s no balance of power because the House of Representatives, unless there’s a criminal investigation, is not subject to any subpoenas.”
“If a president can’t turn to a lawyer for legal advice, then it’s a disaster,” Levin added, saying the ruling would be appealed.

Given that the judge’s ruling was in line with prior precedents, a ruling at the Supreme Court to extend the reach of Executive Privilege would be an act of Judicial Activism. The point of McConnell’s hyper-partisan Supreme Court has been to create a platform for conservative Judicial Activism in the mode of Antonin Scalia.
It may be cloaked behind an ideology of strict interpretation of the Constitution, but we should assess judges by what they do, not by what they say.
