Deputy Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette distanced himself from the U.S. House impeachment inquiry during his confirmation hearing on Nov. 14, denying involvement in any contact with Ukraine beyond facilitating technical expertise for electricity and pipeline grids.

Brouillette, nominated by President Trump to replace outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry, discussed an array of topics with senators, including opportunities in the Arctic and infrastructure challenges during his hearing before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
