OK this is interesting, not so much that DOJ is giving permission to them to testify, but is waiving all executive privilege including privilege relating to presidential communication for those officials
DOJ letter: Former Trump admin officials can testify about Jan 6 bc it's “an exceptional situation in which the congressional need for information outweighs the Executive Branch’s interest in maintaining confidentiality.” Story w/ @AndrewDesiderio politico.com/news/2021/07/27…

Can they still claim executive privilege and refuse to testify if the DOJ has waived it?

Might get them contempt of Congress, but I’m not sure.
