I'm In Charge

It's one thing for there to be a dance between individuals and their subpoenas, and there is that executive privilege thing even if until recently it didn't mean "it can be invoked if Trump says so" but Pompeo saying "my people won't testify" is just absurd.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday pushed back against a request by a key House committee to interview five current or former State Department officials as part of an impeachment inquiry centering on the Ukraine scandal, accusing House Democrats of attempting to “intimidate" and "bully" them.
It really isn't any of his business. They can hire lawyers and deal with it, but he can't just "oh no NAH GA DO IT." They are not extensions of him.

Lock'em up!
