Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., has subpoenaed the State Department for documents it has turned over to Senate Republicans investigating Joe Biden.

Politico reported that Engel, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, indicated the department had ignored his initial request to share copies of any material given to the Senate. Democrats maintained the Senate investigation is an attempt to smear Biden relating to his diplomacy in Ukraine.

“After trying to stonewall virtually every oversight effort by the Foreign Affairs Committee in the last two years, (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo is more than happy to help Senate Republicans advance their conspiracy theories about the Bidens,” Engel said in a statement. “I want to see the full record of what the department has sent to the Senate and I want the American people to see it too.”

Politico noted the State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Some allies of President Donald Trump claim that Biden pressured Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, an energy company for which his son Hunter served on the board, Politico noted.

Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, are leading the deep dive into Biden and his son Hunter’s involvement with Ukraine. They also are looking for information about engagements between other Democrats and Ukraine in regard to an allegation that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election.
