Fresh Trump impeachment testimony released

Trump faces perilous test as impeachment hearings open

In the transcript of her testimony to House investigators, released Monday, Croft says officials in Ukraine were clear in their concern over the assistance as they battled Russian aggression.

House Democrats unveiled a new slate of witnesses scheduled to appear in public hearings as part of the impeachment inquiry next week, with eight officials set to testify before the House Intelligence Committee over the course of three days. He said on Twitter on Monday evening, however, that he would be releasing it "sometime this week", adding: "I am sure you will find it tantalizing!"

The development comes a day ahead of the US Congress' impeachment inquiry against President Trump going public.

Trump had suggested he would release the April transcript Tuesday.

43 percent surveyed say President Trump should be impeached over the Ukraine controversy.

Former independent counsel Ken Starr and former assistant USA attorney Andrew McCarthy will offer additional legal commentary throughout the programming. None were removed from office, although Richard Nixon resigned as he faced nearly certain impeachment in 1974 over the Watergate scandal.

Greta Thunberg sets sail for Spain ahead of climate summit
Thunberg, 16, found herself stranded in the USA when the COP25 Summit was relocated from Santiago, Chile, to the Spanish city. The trip could take two to four weeks, and November is considered offseason for sailing across the Atlantic.

It also says they will argue that "the Ukrainian government was not aware of a hold on USA security assistance at the time of the July 25 call; and President Trump met with President Zelensky and USA security assistance flowed to Ukraine in September 2019 - both of which occurred without Ukraine investigating President Trump's political rivals".

Republicans also call the process unfair, as the GOP can call defense witnesses only with majority Democrats' approval and the president's lawyer will not be allowed to participate in this phase.

Officials have testified that they were concerned that Trump and his administration sought to tie almost $400 million in security aid for Ukraine to the probes. He issued a series of impeachment-related tweets on Monday evening, including accusing Representative Adam Schiff, the Democratic chairman of the Intelligence Committee, of fabricating transcripts.

Democrats consider the open hearings to be crucial to building public support for a vote on articles of impeachment - formal charges - against Trump.

Republicans have so far shown little interest in removing Trump from office.
