Three committees in the US House of Representatives subpoenaed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for all Ukraine-related documents within one week as part of the investigation against President Donald Trump. The House of Representatives Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, and Oversight and Reform Committees sent a jointly signed letter to Pompeo with their requests.
The Democratic Party, which holds a majority in the US House of Representatives, has begun official impeachment investigations into President Trump, suggesting that he has asked Ukraine for political help. Speaking Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “this week the president has admitted to asking the president of Ukraine to take actions which would benefit him politically. The actions of the Trump presidency revealed dishonorable fact [sic.] of the president’s betrayal of his Oath of Office, betrayal of our national security, and betrayal of the integrity of our national elections.”
