Impeachment inquiry ratchets up as Pelosi plans to subpoena Pennsylvania Avenue


I guess you could say that things are getting serious between Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump this week.

Madam Speaker is on the warpath toward the Oval Office, and President Trump isn’t the sort of guy who loses.  Ever.  That’s why we always understood that this impeachment inquiry was going to be messy, mean-spirited, and malfeasant.

Now that we’re into the heart of the investigation, we are starting to see some real friction in the gears of Capitol Hill.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said yesterday that the democrats’ tactics amounted to “bullying”, just hours after Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the world that he wouldn’t cooperate with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff.

House Democratic leaders announced Wednesday they plan to subpoena the White House for documents related to any efforts to pressure Ukraine to probe Joe Biden.

“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,” a memo prepared by House Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings reads. 

Lawmakers are seeking documents “memorializing communications between President Trump and the leader of any other foreign country” that relate to Trump’s efforts to pressure the Ukrainian president.

The Democrats have been busy this week.

The draft subpoena for the White House — released by Cummings, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel — comes after the chairs issued a host of other subpoenas to key Trump administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and to individuals close to the president, like Rudy Giuliani, who played a key role in seeking information from Ukrainian officials on former Vice President Joe Biden’s dealings with the country, along with those of his son Hunter.

The Democratic chairs also have called several State Department officials for depositions related to the Ukraine controversy.  The depositions are for former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovich, former U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker—who resigned from his post last Friday—Deputy Assistant Secretary George Kent, Counselor T. Ulrich Brechbuhl and U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland.

President Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the matter, and has been thoroughly transparent in the release of documents related to the investigation.
