Senate Republicans Kill Bid For State Department Docs

NBC News reports:

Sen. Chuck Schumer has introduced his second amendment, to subpoena State Department documents related to the charges against the president. They are reading the text of the amendment now.

Why it’s important: The State Department is in possession of highly relevant records and communications involving officials in the Office of the Secretary as well as officials covering Ukraine who have direct knowledge of the key events in question.

These records were requested as part of the House impeachment inquiry, but the Trump administration refused to produce these and other key documents.
