House panel subpoenas White House documents
WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee has sent a subpoena to the White House demanding documents that could provide details on President Donald Trump’s effort to push Ukraine to produce information that could damage Joe Biden’s presidential run.

Trump has resisted Democratic attempts to produce documents and administration witnesses for the impeachment inquiry.
The subpoena seems likely to escalate the clash between the two branches of government.
Panel Chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings had threatened the subpoena Wednesday, after the White House ignored two letters in September seeking the documents.
Trump was withholding military aid to Ukraine when he used a July phone call to ask its president to investigate Biden for corruption, an unfounded allegation
