  • House Democrats Subpoena Rick Perry Amid Impeachment Inquiry

Energy Secretary Rick Perry has now been pulled into the House Democrats' impeachment probe against President Donald Trump, as committee chairs subpoenaed Perry asking for a slew of documents Thursday.

In a letter containing the subpoena that was sent to Perry, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel cited media reports as saying that it was the energy secretary who urged Trump to make the phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25.

The letter from the chairmen of the Oversight, Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees sought documents by October 18, the latest effort from Democrats in Congress to secure evidence and testimony from the Trump administration.

The subpoena comes as two Florida businessmen tied to Giuliani and the Ukraine investigation were charged Thursday with federal campaign finance violations.

Hynes said the Energy Department received a letter from the committees and is reviewing it.

"I asked the president multiple times, "Mr. President, we think it is in the United States" and in Ukraine's best interest that you and the president of Ukraine have conversations, that you discuss the options that are there, '" Perry said.

The subpoena also requests documents related to "all meetings and discussions" related to Ukraine between Perry and Rudy Giuliani, the president's personal lawyer who is also implicated in the Ukraine controversy.

Cipollone then accused the Democrat-led House of entering unprecedented territory in launching an impeachment inquiry without a House vote.

Perry denies ever bringing up the Bidens during his interactions with Ukrainian officials, telling the Christian Broadcasting Network, "Not once, as God as my witness, not once was a Biden name - not the former vice president, not his son - ever mentioned".

"The Department of Energy (DOE) is aware of the House Committees' letter to Secretary Perry and it is now under review by DOE's Office of General Counsel", DOE spokeswoman Shaylyn Hynes was quoted as saying by Politico.
