Eliot Engel

The top House Democrat is threatening to issue subpoenas for documents and testimony if the State Department does not agree to turn over documents given to the Senate that relate to former Vice President Joe Biden.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) in a Thursday letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo voiced concern about "partisan misuse" of the agency, alleging that he was helping Senate Republicans take part in a "smear campaign" against Biden. He warned that if he does not receive these documents the Senate has received for its investigation, he will take action.

"As the coronavirus spread from overseas and began to ravage American cities, scarce State Department resources were expended on producing documents to advance conspiracy theories damaging for a candidate for president of the United States," Engel wrote in the letter.
