“Oh, fer cryin out loud. He simply needs to send a lawyer. Get a grip.”
Forgive us regular folk who are not well versed in the legal world. It’s not all that obvious that if the subpoena specifically has a persons name on it a lawyer can show up instead.
Here’s the deal. You are running the most powerful nation on the planet. You have a squadron of lawyers. Get it?

Not a lawyer, but husband is. The subpoena to appear was challenged by BHO’s Georgia lawyer, but his motion to quash was very poorly written. So the administrative law judge denied the motion to quash, but wrote the reason was because he cited no legal precedent or applicable law supporting his motion. Hubby says it looks like it was written by a first year law student, and offended the judge.
So! He expects the lawyer to rewrite the motion correctly and resubmit it on Monday. Or they could just show up with the requested documents. Either way, the judge would take some time to rule, so the 1/26 date is likely to be changed.
No reason to be rude about it- not everyone has an in house legal opinion on call.
