The Honorable Russell T. Vought
Acting Director
Office of Management and Budget
725 17th Street, N.W.
Washington, DC  20503

Dear Acting Director Vought:

       Pursuant to the House of Representatives' impeachment inquiry, we write to request your
appearance at a deposition on October 25, 2019, at 9:30 a.m. at The Capitol, HVC-304.

       This deposition will be conducted jointly by the Permanent Select Committee on
Intelligence, the Committee on Foreign Affairs, and the Committee on Oversight and Reform.
The deposition transcript shall be part of the impeachment inquiry and shared among the
Connittees.  Your failure or refusal to appear at the deposition, including at the direction or
behest of the President or the White House, shall constitute evidence of obstruction of the
House's impeachment  inquiry and may be used as an adverse inference against the President.

       The Committees  are investigating the extent to which President Trump jeopardized
U.S. national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere with our 2020 election and by
withholding a White IHouse meeting with the President of Ukraine and military assistance
provided by Congress to help Ukraine counter Russian aggression, as well as any efforts to
cover up these matters.

       Based upon public reporting and evidence gathered as part of the impeachment inquiry,
we believe you may have information relevant to these matters.

       If you have any questions, please contact staff for the Permanent Select Committee on
Intelligence at (202) 225-7690.
