  • Trump impeachment inquiry: Public hearing schedule

Just hours after ignoring a subpoena to appear before congressional investigators, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Friday asked to join a federal lawsuit now considering whether current and former administration officials are required to comply with demands to testify.

The impeachment inquiry is centred on a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in which the U.S. president asked the Ukrainian leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also a frontrunner in the 2020 Democratic presidential race, and his son, Hunter, who had served on the border of a Ukrainian gas company.

Nevertheless, consider the evidence that emerged Tuesday, when Gordon Sondland, Trump's hand-picked ambassador to the European Union, revised his previous testimony to the three House committees conducting the impeachment inquiry. According to that document, Trump reminded Zelenskiy how dependent Ukraine is on USA aid, then asked for "a favor": that Ukraine conduct a pair of investigations that could help Trump politically.

"I don't want to give credibility to a corrupt witch hunt", Trump told reporters. According to him, incriminating testimony from other witnesses "refreshed my recollection about certain conversations". huh, you know that testimony I just heard?

- Former national security adviser John Bolton failed to appear for an interview with impeachment investigators Thursday, making it unlikely that he will provide testimony to the House.

Mr. Sunderland made headlines after suddenly changing his testimony against Congress and implying that President Trump had committed a crime that might not be possible.

Since the reconstructed transcript was released, a number of current and former administration officials have said that the aid and/or a coveted White House meeting between Zelenskiy and Trump were put on hold at least in part to pressure Ukraine to announce the two investigations. For your security, we've sent a confirmation email to the address you entered.

Mr Sondland submitted the supplemental testimony on Monday after testimony by other officials, including Mr William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat at the embassy in Kiev.

Lawmakers leaving Williams' deposition said her testimony lined up with the accounts of others.

Mr Sondland said he told a Ukrainian presidential adviser that "resumption of U.S. aid would likely not occur until Ukraine provided the public anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for many weeks".

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff disclosed the information to reporters on Wednesday. Kurt Volker, a Republican whom Mr. Trump's administration appointed as special envoy to Ukraine, testified that the allegations Mr. Trump wanted investigated about Mr. Biden were groundless and that their Ukrainian source was not credible.
