House Democrats Subpoena Rick Perry for Ukraine Docs

Democrats have now subpoenaed Energy Secretary Rick Perry for documents in their impeachment inquiry.

The subpoena demands a series of “key documents” related to his knowledge of President Donald Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president by Oct. 18.

“Recently, public reports have raised questions about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President,” the letter reads from the chairmen of the House Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs committees.

House Democrats on Thursday subpoenaed Department of Energy Secretary Rick Perry for Ukraine documents as part of their impeachment investigation against President Donald Trump.

The lawmakers requested that Perry turn over the documents by October 18th.

The development comes after Perry’s spokesperson confirmed the Energy Secretary encouraged President Trump to discuss energy and economic issues with the leader of Ukraine during their July 25th telephone call, which was mischaracterized by a partisan CIA officer in a so-called “whistleblower” complaint. The officer’s complaint has since sparked House Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry.

“Secretary Perry absolutely supported and encouraged the president to speak to the new president of Ukraine to discuss matters related to their energy security and economic development,” Shaylyn Hynes, a Perry spokesperson, said in a statement. More

I don’t believe these are subpoenas but just requests because until a formal inquiry is voted on in the House, Congress does not have enforceable subpoena power. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

I suspect Rick Perry won’t be intimidated by Schiff, Pelosi or Nadler. I hope he rides them in Texas-style and tells them to go pound sand until a vote is taken, up till that point this whole thing is a fraud. It’s nothing short of an all-out politically motivated smear campaign against Republicans. The Democrats have decided to take the lowest road possible.
