House Democrats Subpoena Energy Secretary Rick Perry in Impeachment Probe

It's part of their ongoing quest to impeach President Trump on some of the most politically motivated evidence (and I use that term lightly) in recent memory.

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.

House Democrats state that Perry's dealings in Ukraine, which including pressing Ukrainian officials to have the entire board of state-owned national gas company Naftogaz replaced with a list of potential members that included Texans and Perry supporters, "raised questions about whether you were 'seeking to provide certain Americans help in gaining a foothold in the Ukrainian energy business'".

On Monday, Perry said that he "absolutely" asked Trump "multiple times" to call the Ukrainian President, but about energy - not the Bidens - and said he is not leaving his role in the administration.

According to The Hill, Perry has to turn over the documents by October 18. A whistleblower report brought this allegation up, which was based on second-hand accounts; this person did not listen in on the call.

The White House, however, issued a letter to Pelosi and the three Democratic committee leaders saying it wouldn't cooperate in the inquiry and subpoenas.

Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) sent a letter to Perry along with a schedule of requested documents and communications related to the Energy Secretary's interactions with Ukrainian officials and an array of federal agencies.

"President Trump and his administration reject your baseless, unconstitutional efforts to overturn the democratic process", the letter stated.

As House Democrats expand their impeachment inquiry, Perry has repeatedly emerged as a central figure.

"In the history of our nation, the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch an impeachment inquiry against the president without a majority of the House taking political accountability for that decision by voting to authorize such a dramatic constitutional step", he remarked.
