The chairmen of the three House committees leading Democrats’ impeachment inquiry said Tuesday that they will issue a subpoena to a key official that the State Department blocked from testifying.

The article goes on to state the following:
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said they would subsequently move to subpoena Sondland later Tuesday for testimony and documents.

State Dept left Sondland’s attorneys a voicemail at 12:30 a.m. informing them that testimony would be blocked. Sondland also recovered relevant texts on his personal device, but turned them over to State, Dems say. pic.twitter.com/wOrnrjJstI
