Pompeo “Won’t Tolerate Bullying” By House Democrats

CNBC reports:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday pushed back on House Democrats’ attempt to depose State Department officials as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Pompeo said in a tweet that he is “concerned with aspects” of House committee leaders’ requests “that can be understood only as an attempt to intimidate, bully, & treat improperly the distinguished professionals of the Department of State.”

On Friday, leaders from three Democrat-led House committees subpoenaed Pompeo for documents related to the impeachment inquiry into Trump, which was formally announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., earlier in the week.
