Engel says Pompeo not complying with Trump-Ukraine impeachment inquiry

New York Congressman Eliot Engel, one of the high-ranking House Democrats leading the impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s dealings with the Ukrainian government, said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is not cooperating with the congressional investigation. 

“He is not complying with the inquiry so far,” Engel said on “Face the Nation” Sunday. “There are discussions that are ongoing and we’re hoping that he will comply.” 

Engel, a longtime congressman from the Bronx, is chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, which has oversight over the State Department. The panel is one of several high-profile committees — including the Intelligence, Oversight and Judiciary panels — spearheading the impeachment probe into Mr. Trump’s efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to conduct politically motivated investigations, including one into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Along with the other panels, Engel’s committee has demanded documents from Pompeo about the administration’s recent dealings with the Ukrainian government, as well as testimony from current and former top State Department officials who led diplomatic engagements with the former Soviet country. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/ukraine-investigation-rep-eliot-engel-says-pompeo-not-complying-with-trump-impeachment-inquiry-face-the-nation/
