Trump says transcript of "second" Ukraine call will "probably" be released Tuesday

Donald Trump talks to reporters

Trump said he first spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in April. The committee also must consider whether to summon the witnesses sought by Republicans, who call the impeachment process a sham.

The hundreds of pages of transcripts showed the investigation's deep reach into the White House ahead of next week's public hearings.

Then-National Security Adviser, John Bolton, reportedly green-lighted the aid to Ukraine on 9 September by telling the State Department that the funding could go ahead, Bloomberg said. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said three State Department witnesses will appear in two hearings Wednesday and Friday: the US ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, career department official George Kent and Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine.

There is now not this form of thing as a evidence of wrongdoing by both Joe or Hunter Biden in Ukraine. The White House transcript included cautionary language saying it was not a verbatim account of the discussion between the two leaders, as some Intelligence Community officials said releasing a full transcript could "undermine" national security. Of course, the transcript revealed that Trump suggested Zelensky investigate the Bidens for corruption, but there was no quid pro quo.

Trump has denied doing the leisure nasty.

Before the game's kickoff, the President and first lady Melania Trump received a big cheer as they waved to the crowd at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

On Saturday, Trump called the soon-to-be-released transcript very important.

"Now they want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide that", Trump said, likely speaking of an April phone call just after Zelenskiy took office.

Trump said Friday that he was "not concerned about anything" when asked about the impeachment inquiry.

Vindman alerted superiors about the meeting he described and also after he listened to the July phone call in which Trump personally appealed to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate Biden and an outlier theory of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Cooper wants a federal judge to determine whether Bolton and his former deputy, Charles Kupperman, can be compelled to testify against the White House wishes.

House investigators also released a transcript of the deposition of former National Security Council official Fiona Hill, who also voiced concerns about the Republican president's efforts to prod Ukraine to investigate Democrats.

Ms Hill testified that she heard Mr Sondland bring up Burisma at the meeting, according to a separate transcript of her testimony released last Friday. And the testimony of on the least one look hyperlinks Trump to the resolution to retain honest about $400 million in security help for Ukraine till that country announced it would pursue the investigations into his political rivals. That call occurred months before the one in July that has been the focus of the impeachment inquiry.
