Vice President Mike Pence Refuses to Comply With Document Request in Impeachment Inquiry

First, Rudy did it. Now, Vice President Mike Pence has refused to comply with a request for documents as part of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

“Never before in history has the speaker of the House attempted to launch an ‘impeachment inquiry’ against a president without a majority of the House of Representatives voting to authorize a constitutionally acceptable process,” his counsel, Matthew Morgan, wrote in a two-page letter on Tuesday.
