The head of the american diplomacy refused to collaborate in the research for the recusal of Donald Trump and to allow five officials that is responsible to testify on Capitol hill. According to the complaint Mike Pompeo in an angry letter dated Tuesday and sent to one of the six committees already investigating to Trump, the searches in the Capitol are nothing more than an attempted " intimidate, push, and abuse to distinguished professionals of the State department (Foreign ministry)".
on Friday, the Justice committee of the House of Representatives sent five requirements to many other diplomats, active and retired to be the first witnesses in the investigation by "impeachment". Among them are Kurt Volker , who last week resigned as special envoy of the USA to Ukraine , and the u.s. ambassador in that country, Marie Yovanovitch, fired by Trump on may 20. According to Pompeo, the Capitol has asked these officials a "gigantic amount of documents".
The answer, in the form of a negative, has arrived Tuesday by means of the letter of Pompeo , who is on an official trip that will take you to Italy, the Vatican, Montenegro, Macedonia and Greece until the 6th of October. Pompeo says in the letter: "I will Not tolerate these tactics and I will utilize all the means at my disposal to prevent and reveal any attempt to intimidate these professionals."
Pompeo adds that the democrats " want to break the law legitimate of the executive power to protect the privileged information that is essential to diplomatic relations". The secretary of State deny preemptively that his refusal could be construed as obstruction of justice.
democrats also have given him the deadline to Pompeo until 4 October to deliver emails and communications from you relating to Ukraine. The chief diplomat has not yet responded to that other requirement.
The us government has admitted that Pompeo was on the phone in the call of July 25, between Trump and the president of Ukraine, Volodimir Zelensky , which has opened up the research for the "impeachment". A CIA agent who had knowledge of that call filed a complaint internal that ended up in the Capitol.
democrats believe that Trump has committed a crime of abuse of power to put pressure on Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, who was vice president of the U.S. between 2008 and 2016 and that leads the polls on the democratic primaries for the elections of the next year.Updated Date: 02 October 2019, 21:00
