DoD refuses to comply with House subpoena

Assistant Secretary of Defence for Legislative Affairs Robert Hood told House committee chiefs that the subpoena they issued within the impeachment inquiry against United States President Donald Trump "raises a number of legal and practical concerns." The records request related to the Ukraine scandal was rejected.

As the lower chamber of Congress hasn't conducted a full vote to formalize the process, the Pentagon criticized in the letter the heads of the three panels for implying authorization. The Department of Defense mirrored the responses by Vice President Mike Pence, the White House Office of Management and Budget and Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
