It won't matter to Trump. He'll tell his lawyers to file an appeal. He thinks he's going to wear the committee down like he did subcontractors and other people, down to the point where they decided to settle. This is not an analogous situation.

I don't think he'll wear them down but the courts may let him delay excessively.

Mnuchin may be held in contempt by another committee. It doesn't sound like he has a legal leg to stand on, not that he cares.

In Mnuchin's case, $25k per day isn't going to be very much of an incentive. Please see previous comments on chessboards and grains of wheat.

Trump has jumped the queue on a lot of the cases where his maladministration has been in court (either as plaintiff or defendant.) It will amuse me mightily if that particular table turns.
