House committees are trying to determine whether President Donald Trump violated his oath of office by asking Ukraine to investigate political rival Joe Biden and his family and to investigate Ukraine's involvement in the 2016 USA presidential election.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that Representative Jim Jordan, an aggressive Trump defender, had been assigned to the House Intelligence Committee.

With public hearings getting under way, House Republicans made a move to bolster their response to the impeachment probe.

A State Department legal team said that the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) could not legally block aid, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the matter.

Ambassador William Taylor, a diplomat to Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary for European affairs, are scheduled to testify on November 13, while Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine, will testify on November 15, according to Schiff.

While Vice President Joe Biden was handling global relations with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration, his son, Hunter, was being paid $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural energy experience.

Former vice president Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden speak with Ivanka Trump and her husband, White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner, before a State Funeral for former President George H.W. Bush at the National Cathedral, December 5, 2018, in Washington.

"I had a second call with the president which actually, I believe, came before this one, and now they all want that one". Trump also has repeated an unfounded claim that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Democrats and their candidate, Hillary Clinton.

"What they want is they want my first phone call".

President Trump said Saturday that a transcript of another call he had with the president of Ukraine will "probably" be released on Tuesday. "We'll probably give it on Tuesday, Monday being a holiday", Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews before boarding Air Force One to attend a college football game in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Japan ‘specs ban’ for women at work sparks backlash
In a freakish case has come to light from Japan where many companies have banned women from wearing spectacles at workplace. She added that the report reflects The idea of "ancient Japanese tradition". "It's not about how women do their work".

An official working on the impeachment inquiry said Saturday that Mulvaney's effort to join the lawsuit to test the House's subpoena power would not delay the proceedings.

"Read the transcript. You'll see the call", Trump said of the April conversation.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened to Trump's July 25 phone call with Zelenskiy, said "there was no doubt" that Trump wanted Ukraine to launch investigations into political rivals, according to a transcript of his deposition.

Hill, who was the National Security Council's senior director for Europe and Russian Federation at the time, and Vindman, a Ukraine expert who worked under her, said they took part in a July 10 meeting with Ukraine officials in Bolton's office in the White House.

Last month, U.S. former national security advisor was so alarmed by a White House-linked effort to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democrats, he told aide Fiona Hill to alert the National Security Council's chief lawyer, Hill told House impeachment investigators in her 10-hour deposition.

Hill described Bolton as being angry about the administration's political maneuvers, and she told of his efforts to distance himself from them.

A financial disclosure form Biden released this year shows he and his wife, Jill, took in more than $15 million since leaving the Obama White House, including a lucrative book deal.

Nevertheless, on July 25 Trump delivered the same message to Zelensky- that cooperation, including a meeting and military aid, could be contingent on Ukraine opening the investigations the White House sought.

Lt-Col Vindman was among the U.S. officials in the White House Situation Room monitoring Mr Trump's call two weeks later on July 25 with Mr Zelensky, a main focus of the impeachment probe.

The president fiercely denies seeking any quid pro quo with Ukraine.
