We talk with top reporters about who the American people are likely to hear from, and what effect the hearings might have.

And on Friday, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney asked for the same clarity from courts, saying that he can't be the one to decide whether to listen to the House or listen to the President.

Emma Dumain, covers Congress and congressional leadership for McClatchy. Biden is a leading contender for the Democratic nomination to face the Republican president in the 2020 election.

With the impeachment inquiry into US President Donald Trump poised to enter a new public phase this week, lawmakers sparred on Sunday (Nov 10) over the witnesses who will be allowed to testify, with Democrats dismissing GOP efforts to call the anonymous whistleblower and former vice-president Joe Biden's son Hunter. Democrats are investigating whether the president betrayed his oath of office and placed his personal interests above national security through his communications with the Ukrainian president. Why continue the probe and commit to days of open testimony that will nearly certainly devolve into a partisan political circus? Republicans, don't be led into the fools trap of saying it was not flawless, but is not impeachable. "I'm struggling to remember the words, but it was not a positive call (the July call). 'We have a responsibility to follow through with the full investigation, ' Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), a member of the House Intelligence Committee that leads the inquiry, told me Thursday".

When host Chris Wallace asked Hurd whether pressuring a foreign government to investigate a political rival was "an impeachable offense", Hurd borrowed from other Trump allies' playbook: He argued that perhaps Trump was merely going after corruption.

The release of her transcript comes in the same week that Democrats are scheduled to hold the first public hearings on the impeachment inquiry, starting on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Trump has denied the allegations, namely the "quid pro quo" claim that he withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for prosecution. "I see a state of conflict between the foreign policy professionals and someone who says he's acting on behalf of the president, but frankly I don't know if that is the case".

Croft told investigators of her "trepidation" of taking on the role in spring of adviser to the special envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker, because she anxious that Giuliani was influencing Trump to change USA policy toward the ally.

A senior Pentagon official detailed confusion and concern in the U.S. national security apparatus after the White House blocked aid to Ukraine without explanation, according to testimony released on Monday by the congressional impeachment panel into U.S. President Donald Trump.

"'The roles within the White House will be temporary and they would be working as Special Government Employees, ' the official added, referring to a temporary work classification".

This week USA diplomats William Taylor, George Kent and Marie Yovanovitch are due to detail in public their concerns, previously expressed in testimony behind closed doors, that President Trump and his administration sought to tie £304million ($391million) in security aid to Ukraine to an investigation of the former United States vice president and his son Hunter Biden. However, what he presented was a summary of the conversation and not a transcript.

The head impeachment inquisitor, House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, argued Saturday that the whistleblower's complaint has been corroborated, which makes testimony from the whistleblower "redundant". Only one of those, Rep. Francis Rooney of Florida, has floated the possibility of voting to impeach Trump - but since that declaration, Rooney has voted against the impeachment inquiry as a whole and has gone quiet in his criticism.
