The House, Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs, Committees have subpoenaed Energy Secretary Rick Perry as part of the Impeachment Inquiry, the Committees announced on Thursday.

The letter conveying the subpoena follows just two days after the White House notified Congress that they did not intend to cooperate with the House Impeachment Inquiry.

As Snip Bytes reported the letter sent by White House Counsel Pat Cipollone stated that the Impeachment Inquiry was not being fair to the President or House Republicans.

In their letter to Perry, the Committee Chairmen explain that recent media reports have raised questions about Perry’s involvement in President Trump’s phone call with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.

They cite several published articles regarding Perry and his involvement with the Ukraine scandal. Such as an Axios story in which they reported that President Trump had told House Republicans that he only made the Ukraine call at the urging of Perry.

The Committee Chairmen are also seeking information regarding Perry’s connection to Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Soviet-born Florida real estate entrepreneurs, who were clients of President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

As the News Blender reported Thursday, Parnas, and Fruman, have been arrested and charged with campaign finance rules violations.

The Chairman have given Perry until October 18th to produce the documents requested via Subpoena to the Committees.
