Vice President Mike Pence’s office said that it will not turn over a long list of documents to House Democrats’ as part of their impeachment inquiry.

Pence’s counsel, Matthew E. Morgan, shared the news in a letter to the chairmen of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees. Morgan called the request part of a “self-proclaimed impeachment inquiry,” noting the House of Representatives has not voted to open the inquiry. 

Morgan argues that the request was part of a process that “calls into question your commitment to fundamental fairness and due process rights.”

House Democrats are currently gauging support for a vote to formally authorize the impeachment inquiry.
