House Democrats have followed through on their threat to issue a subpoena to the White House for documents concerning President Trump's dealings with Ukraine.
The chairmen of three House panels notified acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney of the subpoena in a letter on Friday. The subpoena is being issued by the chamber's Oversight and Reform Committee.
Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) warned in a memo on Wednesday that he would issue the subpoena if the White House didn't comply by the end of the week.
But Cummings and the other two committee chairmen leading the impeachment inquiry -- Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) -- said they had not received any response as of Friday evening.
We deeply regret that President Trump has put usand the nationin this position, but his actions have left us with no choice but to issue this subpoena, the chairmen wrote in a letter to Mulvaney.
The Democrats are seeking documents related to Trump's efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a top political rival and leading Democratic presidential contender.
The Hill has reached out to the White House for comment.

I would tell them to shove it where the sun does not shine.
God i’m the BIGGEST worrier on the board and even I’M YAWNING over this.
NO ONE CARES.
God it’s getting BORING.
Democrats want the benefits of running an impeachment inquiry without due process for the President.
They need to go get lost. The President will not cooperate with a biased, fraudulent and transparently partisan inquest.
Yep, those three idiot Rat Chairmen just keep flinging to see if anything sticks...I ain’t going to.
Ditto that!! Trump is eating their baloney lunch!
Well it’s not really impeachment is it cause ya haven’t had a vote dip-sh*ts!
Where is the GOP subpoenaing Adam Schiff and his papers?
No inquiry no subpoena.
Take a vote, Dem hacks, then we’ll talk.
These aren’t subpoenas. They are request letters without the force of law.
Please See: Executive Privilege.
Subpoenas sent to the White House are either shredded or used for bird cage liner by now.
Either in the fetal position sucking their thumbs or attending cocktail dinners with the Dems hoping Trump goes away so they can be the Washington Generals again.
The article says otherwise.
