  • Donald Trump considers testifying to US Congress over Ukraine dealings

File - U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland walks to a secure area of the Capitol to testify as part of the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, in Washington. In dozens of instances, Mr Trump then said he could not "recall" the facts.

The Mueller report ultimately found that Russian agents sought to influence the USA election but that there was no evidence of collusion with the Trump campaign.

Trump attacked Williams in a tweet on Sunday.

However, the president testifying would not be unprecedented.

Pushing back against accusations from the Republican President that the process has been stacked against him, Ms Pelosi said Mr Trump is welcome to appear or answer questions in writing, if he chooses. Democrats say they are steadily revealing corruption and abuse of office at the heart of the real estate magnate's presidency.

President Trump's former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates testified during the recently concluded trial of Roger Stone that Trump and Stone had discussed the impending release of information beneficial to Trump's 2016 campaign, around the same time Stone was working to get information from stolen Democratic documents obtained by WikiLeaks. Holmes will testify alongside Fiona Hill, a former White House Russia adviser, in the week's final hearing.

On Friday, lawmakers heard from Marie Yovanovitch, who was ousted as United States ambassador to Ukraine in May apparently due to lack of support for the president's policies.

"Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad", Mr Trump said on Friday, a moment that Democrats said amounted to witness intimidation.

This caused widespread consternation in the hearing room and Ms Yovanovitch called the president's intervention "very intimidating".

Multiple witnesses overheard a phone call in which Trump and Sondland reportedly discussed efforts to push for the investigations.

His comments came after Mr Trump tweeted attacks on a witness - Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine - while she was testifying to Congress on Friday.

House Democrats are forging ahead in what is yet another week of impeachment hearings.

A poll released Monday confirmed that the country is split more or less down the middle on whether Mr Trump should be removed from office. An average of previous polls showed about 48 percent supported Trump's removal, according to the website FiveThirtyEight.

Mueller's team tried to interview the president for more than a year before Trump submitted the written testimony in response to questions on certain Russia-related topics in November 2018.
