'A lawless president only gets away with it if his party lets him.One can imagine the chaos that might ensue from an effort to put two Cabinet officials behind bars, but it does seem time for the House to take some  measure(s) as Trump and his sycophants’ blatant, repeatedly violate rule of law. Let’s not forget that Barr, Mnuchin and McGahn are every bit as responsible for Trump’s brazen lawlessness as the president himself. . No lawyer, let alone the attorney general, should be permitted to misrepresent facts under oath and defy a legal subpoena. Republicans in the House and Senate share responsibility for the Constitution’s debasement, the decline of their institution and Trump’s increasingly autocratic behavior. They, too, could stop the Trump circus by voting on a citation of contempt and making clear that they, too, would vote to impeach Barr and/or Mnuchin. They choose not to.'

as for McGahn---"Any relevant executive privilege [claim] was waived long ago when McGahn went and spent more than 30 hours being interviewed by the special counsel, so it's very hard to imagine that you can put the toothpaste back in the tube."

"The matter, should McGahn go along with the White House move, may ultimately wind up in court and could even lead to a contempt citation for the former White House counsel.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that House Democrats have already discussed possibly holding McGahn in contempt if he does not honor the subpoena then taking him to civil court to try to convince a judge to order him to comply with their investigations."
