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…

Ok lol yes, the letter is blunter: basically "there are still EB privileges we continue to assert, and that you should decline to discuss (e.g. out-of-scope issues or ongoing prosecutions etc), but not this, which is entirely waived and unassertable". justsecurity.org/wp-content/…
