Trump's re-election support hits a high despite impeachment inquiry, poll shows

WASHINGTON DC- MAY 09 Rep. Rashida Tlaib speaks during an event with activist groups to deliver over ten million petition signatures to Congress urging the U.S. House of Representatives to start impeachment proceedings against President Donald T

"As I understood the reason for investigating Burisma was to cast Vice President Biden in a bad light", Taylor said, according to a transcript of closed-door testimony he delivered as part of an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

The Gallup poll said 87 percent of Democratic respondents said they want Trump impeached and removed from office.

"President Trump's reelection prospects seem to be energizing voter enthusiasm across the political spectrum", said Morning Consult vice president Tyler Sinclair.

The top US diplomat in Ukraine, William Taylor, told lawmakers he believed the push to investigate Ukrainian energy company Burisma and its ties to Hunter Biden was motivated by a desire to attack Hunter's father, former Vice President Joe Biden. Joe Biden is a leading Democratic contender to face Trump in the 2020 presidential election. "That's not only distasteful, but it's a misuse of community workplace and it would be an formal misuse of public business office if it was everyone other than the president".

"It's clear abuse of presidential power".

They're additionally telling House Democrats to "Secure over it" on a high that's additionally going for $30.

Those opposed to impeachment held steady at 43 percent, where it has stood since House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry over the president's dealings with Ukraine in September.


Two top State Department officials, Ulrich Brechtbuhl and David Hale, have not yet said whether they will appear, although some other State Department officials have cooperated.

Hale is expected to tell investigators the State Department was concerned that supporting former USA ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch could hurt efforts to release aid and could provoke Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, the Associated Press reported, citing people familiar with the matter. Marie Yovanovitch, who was abruptly pulled from her post as USA ambassador to Ukraine in May, will testify on November 15.

Among registered voters, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden led Mr. Trump by 17 points, 56% to 39%, according to the ABC News-Washington Post survey.

The Republican National Committee has been paying for an effort to get thousands of people to call congressional Democrats en masse in an effort to tie up their phone lines with complaints about the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

At least one, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, this week told reporters he did not plan to read the transcripts even as hundreds of pages have begun to be released.

Sondland told Yermak "that resumption of United States aid would not likely occur until Ukraine provided the anti-corruption statement that we had been discussing for weeks", he told investigators.
