House Democrats subpoena U.S. diplomat Sondland in Trump impeachment probe

In a letter to Sondland, the Democratic chairmen of three House committees said the subpoena compels him to appear on Oct. 16 to answer questions on his role in Trump’s effort to get Ukraine to investigate a political rival.

The subpoena comes as The White House rejected the impeachment inquiry as “constitutionally invalid” and said it would refuse to cooperate with the probe absent a vote of the full House.

An eight-page letter signed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone was sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top U.S. Democrat, and the Democratic chairs of the House intelligence, foreign affairs and oversight committees.

Pelosi argues the impeachment inquiry she launched is constitutional and that no House vote is necessary at this juncture.
