U.S. House Democrats subpoena White House budget, State Department officials

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Democrats on Friday issued three more subpoenas as part of their impeachment inquiry, targeting top officials in the White House budget office and the U.S Department of State.

The subpoenas called on Office of Management and Budget and Acting Director Russell Vought and Associate Director for National Security Programs Michael Duffey, and Department of State Counselor T. Ulrich Brechbuhl to testify as part of the probe, the three House committees leading the effort said.

Lawmakers said Duffey must appear Nov. 5, and Vought and Brechbuhl must appear Nov. 6, the committees said in a statement.
