House Democrats are threatening to subpoena the White House for documents on President Trump
‘s dealings with Ukraine as part of their impeachment inquiry, with three House panels signaling Wednesday they plan to move forward with the effort unless they get the material.
“Over the past several weeks, the Committees tried several times to obtain voluntary compliance with our requests for documents, but the White House has refused to engage with—or even respond to—the Committees,” reads a memo from House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings
The subpoena will be issued on Friday if the White House does not comply with document requests.
“The White House’s flagrant disregard of multiple voluntary requests for documents —combined with stark and urgent warnings from the Inspector General about the gravity of these allegations — have left us with no choice but to issue this subpoena,” the memo states.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney Rudy Giuliani has been subpoenaed by the House Democrats.
