Democrats accused the secretary of state of repeatedly refusing to cooperate with investigations by the Foreign Affairs Committee.

 The House Foreign Affairs Committee is launching contempt proceedings against Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for what it says is his repeated refusal to cooperate with the committee’s investigations.

Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) cited Pompeo’s refusal to turn over documents in the House’s impeachment inquiry last fall as well as another subpoena seeking documents the State Department has already voluntarily turned over to a Republican-led Senate committee targeting former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I won’t stand by and see the Committee or the House treated with such disdain by anyone,” Engel said in statement.
