Ambassador expected to testify key assurance came from Trump

  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff of Calif. speaks with reporters after a meeting with former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Capitol Hill Friday Oct. 11 2019 in Washington

The person said Hill would testify that she and others "objected strenuously" to Yovanovitch's removal.

Trump, in a late July phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, asked for "a favor", that Ukraine investigate the Bidens and reach out to to Giuliani and Trump's attorney general, William Barr. The person is known to be a male and a CIA official who was detailed to the White House but is now back at the agency.

The Democrats' inquiry is moving at a steady pace.

"We expect to announce additional testimony from relevant witnesses in the coming days and remain prepared to compel testimony through duly authorized subpoenas as appropriate", Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a letter to House Democrats on Friday.

Donald Trump on Monday accused Democrats of coaching the whistle-blower to get the details of his call with the Ukrainian president wrong and again demands the identity of the person to be revealed. Trump wrote, retweeting a post from his assistant and White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino that linked to a Hill article where Tlaib discussed the Democrats' initiative.

Hill served on the National Security Council as senior director for Russian Federation and Europe from mid-2017 until the week before Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky held a July 25 phone call that sparked an intelligence community whistleblower's report and is at the heart of House Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

"We want to make sure that we meet the needs of the investigation and not give the president or his legal minions the opportunity to tailor their testimony and in some cases fabricate testimony to suit their interests", Schiff said on CBS' "Face the Nation". A White House memorandum later showed that Trump repeatedly pressed Zelensky during the call to look into topics that could be politically useful for Trump in 2020.

Dupont de Ligonnès". "Il y a une suspicion sur les empreintes mais c'est en cours de vérification, en cours de confirmation". Les enquêteurs, prudents, attendent cependant "les comparaisons ADN pour être complètement certains", selon ces sources.

But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has resisted those efforts and is unlikely to budge as Congress returns this week.

That is a bad abuse of the president's power. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., said Sunday he'd be fine with taking a formal vote, "but it's not required".

Giuliani has sought to get Ukraine to investigate one of Trump's leading political rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden, and the role he played several years ago in the ouster of a Ukrainian prosecutor and any links it might have had to the lucrative tenure of Hunter Biden, his 49-year-old son, on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company. Trump has described the call with Zelenskiy as "perfect".

The impeachment investigation was touched off by an unnamed intelligence community whistleblower who was unnerved by Trump's conversation with Zelenskiy and request for help investigating Biden. Sondland understood the discussions about combating corruption to be part of a much broader and publicized Trump administration push that was widely shared, the person said.

Despite Trump's assertions that he won't cooperate, some members of his administration are participating anyway.

This week's most compelling details could come from Sondland, who is expected to discuss the text message exchange with Bill Taylor, the top USA diplomat in Ukraine. He's expected to tell Congress that his text message reassuring another envoy that there was no quid pro quo in their interactions with Ukraine was based exclusively on what Trump told him, according to a person familiar with his coming testimony.
