Energy Secretary Rick PerryRick PerryCoronavirus Report: The Hill's Steve Clemons interviews Ernest Moniz Trump issues executive order to protect power grid from attack Why we need to transition, quickly, from fossil fuels to clean energy MORE was tight-lipped Wednesday about whether he'd cooperate with a House subpoena regarding his role in President TrumpDonald John TrumpDonald Trump and Joe Biden create different narratives for the election The hollowing out of the CDC Poll: Biden widens lead over Trump to 10 points 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.
