The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said some members of Congress are harassing the Department of State in connection with Democrats’ attempts to remove President Donald Trump from power.

According to him, some members of Congress contacted employees of the State Department directly and tried to force them to “provide documents” belonging to the department.

“This is the persecution. And I will never let this happen to my team”, – the AFP Secretary of State quotes.

Earlier, Democrats of the US House of Representatives requested the White House documents on Ukraine in connection with the investigation into the impeachment of Trump.
