House Democrats demand documents from Pence in impeachment probe

Mike Pence Vice President Ukraine Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky extortion aid Joe Biden corruption message

According to USA Today, the White House is expected to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), which could be sent out on Friday, demanding a full House vote authorizing the impeachment inquiry, before cooperating with the investigation.

President Donald Trump's telephone habits with other world leaders are coming under scrutiny in the wake of his request for the Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden.

The U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee issued a subpoena on September 27 for Pompeo, a close Trump ally, seeking to compel him to hand over documents concerning contact with the Ukrainian government. A whistleblower complaint said that Trump sought to use military assistance for Ukraine as leverage to push President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the 2020 Democratic hopeful.

"The State Department sent a letter last night to Congress, which is our initial response to the document request. We will obviously do all the things we are required to by law", Pompeo told a news conference in Greece. He did not elaborate on the contents of the letter.

Lawmakers are looking at whether Trump jeopardized national security and the integrity of USA elections for personal political gain.

Mr Trump, who has described his conduct as "perfect", said on Friday he would formally object to Congress's impeachment inquiry, even as he acknowledged Democrats "have the votes" to proceed.

"We deeply regret that President Trump has put us - and the nation - in this position, but his actions have left us with no choice", wrote the three Democratic House chairmen, Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff and Eliot Engel, in issuing Friday's subpoena.

"We hope the Department will cooperate in full promptly", said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

US President Donald Trump has signalled his administration will not co-operate with an impeachment inquiry into his conduct after Democrats subpoenaed the White House about contacts with Ukraine.

Pompeo's Democratic critics say he is now a "witness" caught in a conflict of interest that should rule him out of decisions on how the State Department deals with the investigation. They have also threatened to use the administration's refusal to turn over documents and make witnesses available to potentially form an article of impeachment over obstruction of the congressional inquiry.

"That's harassment. And I'm never going to let that happen to my team".
