WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Foreign Affairs Committee has subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for documents he turned over to a Senate panel that is investigating Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Committee Chairman Eliot Engel said Friday that he had issued the subpoena as part an investigation into Pompeo’s “apparent use of Department of State resources to advance a political smear of former Vice President Joe Biden.”

The subpoena demands all of the records that the department has turned over to Republican-led Senate committees that are investigating Hunter Biden’s work for a gas company in Ukraine while his father was vice president.
