Trump and team against impeachment probe

 

Trump administration pushed back hard Tuesday against the impeachment investigation of the president, accusing Democrats of bullying and intimidation in asking five diplomats to testify on White House efforts to seek dirt on a Trump political rival.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo questioned the authority of three House committees conducting the impeachment probe to summon testimony from the diplomats and said they would not appear to testify in the coming week as requested.

He also challenged the Democrat-led committee's right to demand documents from them and suggested the administration was prepared to take the fight to court.
