Donald Trump to release transcript of second call with Ukrainian president

  • The House Intelligence Committee is meeting behind closed doors to see if there's ground for Articles of Impeachment against President Trump

Trump previously released a transcript of his July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which is at issue in the House impeachment proceedings. It's of interest to House Democrats leading the inquiry.

"I would make the argument that every politician in Washington, other than me, virtually, is trying to manipulate Ukraine to their purposes", Paul said.

President Donald Trump reiterated on Saturday that the congressional impeachment investigation into his dealings with the Ukraine is a "witch hunt" while calling for former Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be called as witnesses in the inquiry.

Several Democrats on Sunday pushed back against their GOP counterparts' request.

President Donald Trump said he's prepared to release the transcript sought by House Democrats of his first phone call with Ukraine's president, in April, as soon as Tuesday.

"There's not really anything the President said in that phone call that's different from what he says in public all the time", Thornberry said. "So you have direct evidence, not indirect evidence".

The testimony details how top USA officials were alarmed that Trump had outsourced Ukraine policy to his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who had pushed top Ukraine officials to publicly announce an investigation into the Bidens and to pursue a conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections to help Democrats.

There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden in Ukraine.

Sharply colder Monday, morning light snow
We could see 1-3 inches of snowfall maybe even some folks gaining 4 inches of snowfall as you travel more south and east. Then that cold front will push into the central part of the state, bringing lows in the 20s Tuesday through Thursday .

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.

One such example is House Armed Services ranking Republican member Rep. Mac Thornberry, who described the president's actions as "inappropriate", but not impeachable. He said it would be "inappropriate", but not impeachable, for a president to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival, as Trump is alleged to have done. The importance of process, Thornberry maintained, can not be ignored.

"There's a reason we let murderers and robbers and rapists go free when their due process rights have been violated", Thornberry said. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said the impeachment inquiry "has been a partisan exercise from the very beginning". He said Republicans want to hear testimony from Hunter Biden.

They said on Friday Representative Jim Jordan, one of Trump's most aggressive and tenacious defenders, would move to the intelligence committee for the public hearings phase of the inquiry.

"I'm not concerned about anything", Trump also told reporters.

"When you're going to provide hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into a system, you want to make sure it isn't corrupt".

"I learned a lot about Russian tradecraft: how the Russians operate, who they target, the vulnerabilities they look for", he recounted earlier this year to Zach Dorfman of the Aspen Institute Cyber and Technology program.
