Three House committees subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday for documents related to investigations on whether President Trump jeopardized national security by pressuring Ukraine's president to investigate political rival Joe Biden.

Why it matters: The subpoena from the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees for these documents — which the committees have previously requested from Pompeo — now has the authority of a formal impeachment inquiry behind it.

Details: The subpoena states that Pompeo has until October 4 to provide documents as "part of the impeachment inquiry and shared among the Committees."

The committees also scheduled depositions for 5 State Department officials on Friday, as part of the House impeachment inquiry, in the following schedule:

  • October 3: Ambassador Kurt Volker
  • October 7: Deputy Assistant Secretary George Kent
  • October 8: Counselor T. Ulrich Brechbuhl
  • October 10: Ambassador Gordon Sondland
  • October 11: Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch
