US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry refused to testify at a closed session of the House of Representatives committees of the U.S. President’s investigation into the impeachment of the U.S. President, initiated in connection with possible pressure on the Ukrainian leadership. This was stated by spokeswoman for the Department of Energy Shailene Hines, reports Reuters.
“The minister will not participate in a secret investigation into the stars of the house (lower house of Congress – ed.), Where the ministry’s lawyer is forbidden to attend,” said Hines.
She emphasized that if the parliamentary committee is interested in conducting a serious trial, he may send Perry an invitation to attend an open hearing, which may be attended by a lawyer from the ministry and the American public.
