Three House committees asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday for documents related to President Trump's July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. On the call, President Trump reportedly asked Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden’s son’s former role on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.
