Congressional Democrats have forced the White House to hand over documents related to Donald Trump-Ukraine affairs. The chairmen of the three House committees, which lead the investigation into a potential impeachment case, said Wednesday in Washington that if the White House did not hand over the required documents by Friday, they would order the release with a subpoena.

A subpoena is a legally binding invitation. “The monstrous disrespect of the White House for numerous requests for voluntary document release leaves them no choice but to resort to this remedy”, the Chairmen of the Intelligence Committee, the Government Regulatory Commission and the Foreign Affairs Committee, Adam Schiff, Elijah Cummings and Eliot Angel said. “This is a blatant attempt to intimidate witnesses”, Schiff said. “It’s a call to violence”.  Adam Schiff pledged to preserve the anonymity of the intelligence officer who had started the affair with his complaint. “We will do everything in our power to ensure that the whistleblower is protected”.

The Democratic committee chairmen already had issued a subpoena against State secretary Mike Pompeo on Friday. He was given one week to deliver the material on the Ukraine affair. Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani also had a subpoena. In addition, the committees invited five current or former members of the Foreign affairs as witnesses, Pompeo branded this as an attempt to intimidate and bully. He would use all the means at his disposal to defend himself, the State Secretary warned in a letter to Congress. Donald Trump described the plans of the Democrats for impeachment proceedings against him as a “coup d’état”.

“We have to be fair to the president, that’s why it’s an investigation and not an immediate impeachment trial, and we have to give the president the chance to relieve himself”,  the Democrat Nancy Pelosi told journalists in Washington on Wednesday. The White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham wrote on Twitter that the promise of a fair treatment was ridiculous. The Democrats attacked Donald Trump since his election victory.

Democrats, who hold the majority in the House of Representatives, accuse the White House and other government agencies of intentionally withholding material on a controversial phone call that Trump led at the end of July with the new Ukrainian head of state, Volodymyr Zelensky. During the call, Donald Trump urged investigations in Ukraine against the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son. Such investigations could give Trump advantages in the 2020 presidential campaign.
