Energy Secretary Rick PerryRick PerryThe Hill's Morning Report - Sponsored by Facebook - Trump, Biden blitz battleground states Texas Republicans sound post-2020 alarm bells In partisan slugfest, can Chip Roy overcome Trump troubles? MORE was tight-lipped Wednesday about whether he'd cooperate with a House subpoena regarding his role in President TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden campaign slams Facebook after thousands of ads blocked by platform's pre-election blackout Mnuchin says he learned of Pelosi's letter to him about stimulus talks 'in the press' Harris to travel to Texas Friday after polls show tie between Trump, Biden MORE's phone call with Ukraine. The call has since led to an impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives. 


On Fox Business on Wednesday morning, Perry said, "The House has sent a subpoena over for the records that we have, and our general counsel and the White House counsel are going through the process right now."

"I’m going to follow the lead of my counsel on that," Perry added.

Then, later in the morning, Perry refused to answer an impeachment-related question on a press call. 

Perry's response isn't all that surprising, as the White House has repeatedly said it will not cooperate with the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry. 

Politico reports that Perry became of interest to the House when the whistleblower report stated that Perry was the head of the U.S. delegation to Ukraine for President Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration.

Perry, the former governor of Texas, is set to resign from his position by the end of November, according to the news source.
