House impeachment investigators release two more transcripts of State Department officials

Mr Trump made the remarks in a series of tweets that took aim at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Monday morning (local time), in which he also said he "did nothing wrong".

Referring to Pelosi as the "Crazy, Do Nothing Speaker of the House" and "nervous", Trump suggested the ongoing inquiry into his dealings with Ukraine was a distraction from other big-ticket items for Congress, like CUSMA, infrastructure and drug prices.

The federal appeals court is reviewing a lower-court ruling that mandates disclosure of the grand-jury information, with the Justice Department insisting that the material should be off-limits, The Washington Post reported.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, during an appearance Monday in Louisville, Kentucky, acknowledged the House will likely vote to impeach the president.

"The fact is, the aid was only released after the whistleblower exposed the truth of the president's extortion and bribery, and the House launched a formal investigation", she argued.

With the addition of Holmes, the House intelligence committee is hearing from nine witnesses publicly this week. Trump has said the impeachment process is stacked against him and is nothing more than a "witch hunt". Democrats are looking into whether Trump abused his power in part by withholding $391 million in aid to Ukraine as leverage to get Kiev to investigate Biden.

Democrat Peter Welch responded at the time, "I would be glad to have the person who started it all come in and testify".

On Tuesday afternoon, investigators will hear from two witnesses called by Republicans on the Intel committee: Kurt Volker, the former USA special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, the former senior NSC director for Europe and Russian Federation policy.

Williams, for her part, told House investigators she thought Trump's requests were "unusual and inappropriate". FILE - President Donald Trump speaks to reporters outside the White House, in Washington , Nov. 9, 2019.

In August, Johnson writes, he spoke with Gordon Sondland and the call apparently "involved Sondland describing an arrangement where, if Ukraine did something to demonstrate its serious intention to fight corruption and possibly help determine what involvement operatives in Ukraine might have had during the 2016 U.S presidential campaign, then Trump would release the hold on military support".

Unnamed sources told CNN that White House aides warned Trump against forcing out the witnesses, advising that doing so would be seen as retaliation. It is a U.S. President's absolute right to appoint ambassadors.

Trump has said he barely knew Sondland.

Finally on Thursday, former National Security Counsel Senior Director Fiona Hill will close out the week.
