Brace Yourselves: Trump's Releasing Another Call Transcript

10 Novembre, 2019, 18:21 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and career department official George Kent are to testify Wednesday, and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is to appear Friday. The whistleblower sparked the inquiry into Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Democrats want to know if Trump withheld almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to get President Volodomyr Zelenskiy to publicly commit himself to investigating Joe Biden, a potential Trump rival in the 2020 presidential election, for corruption. Most prominent among them: the anonymous whistleblower and former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter.

US President Donald Trump has said that the White House will probably release a transcript of a second call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Tuesday.

"They want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide that", the President told reporters Saturday on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews, before boarding Air Force One.

The GOP also requested Nellie Ohr, a former Fusion GPS contractor, and Alexandra Chalupa, a former Democratic National Committee staffer, signaling that Republicans still want to focus on unsubstantiated claims related to the 2016 presidential campaign. The White House already has released a transcript of their July 25 phone conversation, in which Democrats allege Mr. Trump was withholding military aid until Ukraine's leader agreed to investigate Democratic frontrunner Joseph R. Biden.

On Saturday, Trump said the April call is "very important", CNN reported.

Ivanka Trump dismisses impeachment probe as attempt to overturn 2016 election
With public hearings getting under way, House Republicans made a move to bolster their response to the impeachment probe . The president fiercely denies seeking any quid pro quo with Ukraine.

Nunes writes that both Biden and Archer's time with Burisma "can assist the American public in understanding the nature and extent of Ukraine's pervasive corruption, information that bears directly on President Trump's long-standing and deeply-held skepticism of the country".

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) speaks during a media briefing after a House vote approving rules for an impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Trump on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., October 31, 2019.

Hill described Bolton as being angry about the administration's political maneuvers, and she told of his efforts to distance himself from them. And the testimony of at least one witness links Trump to the decision to withhold almost $400 million in security aid for Ukraine until that country announced it would pursue the investigations into his political rivals.

Jordan has fiercely defended Trump from his critics, especially the Democrats in charge of the impeachment probe, which he has called a "ridiculous charade".

While some of Trump's Republican supporters are finding it hard to defend his actions, they say they do not believe his request for an investigation into the Bidens is an impeachable offense that could lead to his removal from office.
