Energy Secretary Rick Perry has been subpoenaed by House Democrats to produce documents relating to their impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump’s discussions with Ukraine.

The three Democratic House committee chairmen leading the impeachment inquiry wrote:

"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."

On Thursday, Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings sent the subpoena to Perry.

Trump told GOP lawmakers last week that Perry had asked him to make the call.

The president also said he did not want to make the call in the first place, but Perry urged him.

Perry later said that he asked Trump to make the call.

According to The Washington Examiner: Democrats have subpoenaed Perry to find out if he was involved in Trump’s request that Ukraine look into allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden used U.S. taxpayer money to save his son, Hunter Biden, from a potential corruption investigation.

Last month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump following the phone call with the Ukrainian president.

Pelosi said:

 "the president must be held accountable" for the "betrayal of his oath of office, betrayal of our national security, and the betrayal of the integrity of our elections."

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters that President Donald Trump did not attempt to bribe or blackmail him or push a quid pro quo on the Ukrainian government as Democrats claim.

Speaking with media during an event inside a Kiev food market, Zelensky said he believes the transcript released by the White House is accurate.

The Ukrainian leader says he knew the U.S. had withheld $400 million in military aid over concerns about corruption and concern for American "taxpayer money."
