Democrats threaten to subpoena White House for documents in impeachment inquiry

WASHINGTON – House Democrats threatened to subpoena the White House in an escalating battle over documents and witness testimony in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

The chairmen of three committees said in a joint statement Wednesday that the administration must release documents by Friday.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, said the White House has “refused to engage with – or even respond to” the committees’ requests.

“The White House’s flagrant disregard of multiple voluntary requests for documents – combined with stark and urgent warnings from the Inspector General (of the intelligence community) about the gravity of these allegations – have left us with no choice but to issue this subpoena,” Cummings wrote in a memo to committee members that was released along with a draft subpoena.

Trump attacked House intelligence committee Chair Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when asked by reporters Wednesday if he will comply.

"I always cooperate. This is a hoax," Trump said during an afternoon news conference with Finland's president. “But we’ll work together with Shifty Schiff and Pelosi and all of them and see what happens.”
