Energy Secretary Rick Perry won’t testify before House investigators’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, according to the DOE.
“The Secretary will not partake in a secret star chamber inquisition where agency counsel is forbidden to be present,” DOE spokesperson Shaylyn Hynes said in an email, adding that Perry would consider a request from lawmakers to testify in an open hearing.
A person working on the inquiry had said Perry was expected to testify on Wednesday.
