The latest explosive turns in the impeachment investigation against Trump came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Democratic-led congressional committees leading the probe of having “harassed and abused” State Department employees by contacting them directly for documents rather than going through department lawyers. “That’s harassment,” Pompeo said during a visit to Athens, “and I’m never going to let that happen to my team”.
