Russ Vought will not testify

Acting Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Russ Vought said Monday that he and OMB's associate director for national security programs will not cooperate with the House’s impeachment inquiry.

“I saw some Fake News over the weekend to correct," Vought tweeted.

"As the WH letter made clear two weeks ago, OMB officials - myself and Mike Duffey - will not be complying with deposition requests this week. #shamprocess” he added.

It was unclear what reporting he was disputing.

The three House committees leading the impeachment inquiry are seeking testimony from both Vought and Duffey regarding the rationale for withholding nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine. Vought would be one of the most senior White House officials to testify in the inquiry. The House has also subpoenaed Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who has not committed to testifying but said the Pentagon will "do everything we can to comply."
