House Democrats subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday afternoon for documents related Donald Trump‘s call with Ukraine‘s president the diplomat has not produced.
Rep. Eliot Engel, chairman of the Foreign Affairs committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the Oversight committee, and Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the Intelligence committee, gave him until Oct. 4 to comply in new letter.
‘Your failure or refusal to comply with the subpoena shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the House’s impeachment inquiry,’ the chairmen wrote.
They are also seeking testimony from the whistle-blower who revealed the content of the call and other current and former State Department officials referenced in the whistle-blower’s complaint for their probe and impeachment inquiry.
In a Friday summons they announced hearing dates for former Ukraine envoy Marie Yovanovitch, U.S. Special Representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker, Deputy Assistant Secretary of European and Eurasian affairs George Kent, Pompeo deputy Ulrich Brechbuhl and EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland in the next two weeks.
