Outgoing Department of Energy Secretary (DOE) Rick Perry has opted against complying with a subpoena from House Democrats to hand over documents relating to his activities with Ukraine.

In a letter Friday, the DOE notified Democrats that their formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump over a July telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was unsubstantiated.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As the Supreme Court has long recognized, a Congressional committee cannot exercise the investigative power of the full House of Representatives unless it has that power through proper delegation,” the letter stated.

Referring to the fact that Pelosi has never even held a vote to begin an impeachment inquiry, the letter stated, “In contrast to historical precedent, the House has neither expressly adopted a resolution authorizing an impeachment investigation nor delegated impeachment authority by rule. By failing to validly authorize the impeachment inquiry, the House apparently seeks to investigate conduct of an impeachable officer pursuant to the legislative power – not the impeachment power of the House.”

The letter further writes that “even if the inquiry was validly authorized,” much of the information sought in the subpoena appears to consist of confidential communications that are potentially protected by executive privilege.

    Kudos to Rick Perry. When you’ve got the nice pissed off you know you’ve pushed to damned far. The the beginning of a grand fight.
