US Energy Secretary Rick Perry will not comply with a congressional subpoena related to the impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, Reuters cited local media reports as saying.

The Democratic leadership in the US House of Representatives is investigating whether or not Trump had abused his office as president by pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, Trump’s 2020 presidential election rival.

Congress on October 10th asked Perry to turn over documents related to the impeachment probe.
