United State of American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has an “obvious conflict of interest” in the Ukraine scandal and will likely be a key witness in the congressional impeachment inquiry, House Democrats said Tuesday.

Pompeo may be involved in a “blatant cover-up and a clear abuse of power,” a trio of Democratic chairman wrote in a letter Tuesday night.

Given Pompeo’s potential role, he should “not be making any decisions regarding witness testimony or document production in order to protect himself or the president,” the lawmakers said.

The extraordinary warning – sent to the State Department’s deputy secretary of state, John Sullivan – came after a bitter exchange between Pompeo and House Democrats over the scheduled depositions of five State Department officials involved in communications between Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, and Ukrainian government officials.

Giuliani and Trump have pressured Ukraine’s new government, led by President Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Giuliani has said he contacted Zelensky’s top adviser at the direction of the State Department and has kept officials at that agency abreast of his conversations.
