In an article in The Hill, Cristina Marcos reported that, The House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight panels, the “three House committees conducting an impeachment inquiry asked Vice President [Mike] Pence on Friday to turn over documents concerning his involvement in President Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine into launching investigations into a political rival” and to do so by October 15.
In a letter to Pence, the Chairman of the three committees stated that “recently, public reports have raised questions about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President”. The Chairman further notified Pence that,
“Your failure or refusal to comply with the request, including at the direction of or behest of the president or the White House, shall constitute evidence of obstruction of justice of the House’s impeachment inquiry and may be used as an adverse inference against you and the president,” wrote House Intelligence Chairman Committee Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.).
According to Cristina Marcos “The Washington Post reported earlier this week that Trump repeatedly involved Pence in his efforts to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into the business dealings of Hunter Biden, who served on the board of a Ukrainian energy company while his father Joe Biden was vice president.”
