White House spokesperson Stephanie Grisham (back) has dismissed the report.
Throughout the drama, however, Trump has opted for stone-walling and flat-out resistance to what his supporters say amounts to a "coup". If fewer than 2/3 vote to impeach, President Trump remains in his current position. The panel's Democratic majority has not yet released its own report on the inquiry.
In addition to the central allegation about Trump pressuring Ukraine to investigate Biden, the Democrats claim that the president withheld aid to Ukraine and dangled the prospect of a White House meeting as leverage to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to comply with his request.
The Democrats' report makes no recommendation on possible articles of impeachment against the president, but lays out justification for the next stage of the inquiry and for the House to vote on impeaching Trump.
The lack of movement in this essential measure of Trump's political standing also indicates that while most Americans think Trump did something wrong in his dealings with Ukraine, news and congressional testimony about this issue have not shifted how people feel about the president.
He continued: "That's not my thing".
Last-place Devils fire John Hynes, name Alain Nasreddine interim coach
Subban, Wayne Simmonds and Jack Hughes, the first-overall pick in this year's National Hockey League draft. Shero hired Hynes to be the head coach less than a month later, on June 2.
"I will not let them take advantage of American companies, if they are going to be taxed, it will be by the United States". But you have to understand.
"I think it would be to the president's advantage to have his attorneys there". It's not about a quid pro quo. Instead, they say Democrats just want to undo the 2016 election.
In London, Trump repeated his defence that his calls with Zelenskiy were "perfect" and that the impeachment inquiry was "a hoax", accusing Democrats of a three-year effort to undo his 2016 election victory as he seeks re-election next November.
"We understand from rumours and press reports (though not from any notice provided in your letter or in the official notice of the hearing) that the hearing will consist of an academic discussion by law professors".
In his letter to the Judiciary Committee, White House Counsel Cipollone said that Trump was still considering his options for subsequent hearings before the committee, at which some fact witnesses are expected to testify. "We can not fairly be expected to participate in a hearing while the witnesses are yet to be named and while it remains unclear whether the Judiciary Committee will afford the president a fair process through additional hearings".
La blessure de Dubois est connue — OL
Ce sera le cas mardi, et il est clairement acquis que l'ancien nantais ne retrouvera pas la Ligue 1 avant l'année prochaine. Ainsi que sa participation à l'Euro 2020 avec l'Equipe de France, où il est régulièrement appelé par Didier Deschamps.
"It's easy to hide behind a report", said Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia, the top Republican on the judiciary committee. "Any discussion with the yet-to-be identified witnesses will, therefore, be in the abstract", Collins wrote to Nadler.
White House counsel Pat Cipollone has not ruled out taking part in future proceedings if Democrats address a list of procedural complaints.
The president also claimed, as he has before, that the impeachment battle is helping him politically, saying we are "winning so big" and falsely claiming his poll numbers have never been better.
Impeachment is the equivalent of a grand jury indictment - a statement by the House that it believes there's sufficient evidence for a trial in the Senate over whether Trump keeps his office.
Nadler has given the White House until 5 pm Friday, December 6 to say whether Trump plans to mount a defense against impeachment by calling witnesses and introducing evidence.
"The impeachment inquiry has found that President Trump, personally and acting through agents within and outside of the U.S. government, solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, to benefit his re-election".
