Lara Trump: Dems Know Impeachment Their Only Chance

Kurt Volker, the US special envoy for Ukraine, resigned Tuesday, the same day multiple House committees scheduled to depose him on President Donald Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Three House committees have subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for documents related to the Ukraine probe at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

That complaint, which was declassified with several redactions, refers to the Trump's phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart in which he asks why that country's top prosecutor had ended an investigation of the business dealings of Joe Biden's son.

White House officials also, according to the complaint, told the whistleblower it wasn't the first time during the Trump administration "that a Presidential transcript was placed into this codeword-level system exclusively for the objective of protecting politically sensitive rather than national security-sensitive information".

"I spoke to the State Department during the course of this situation, I told you, at least 10 times, and I met with them", Giuliani told CNN.

Republican Representative Greg Walden said on Wednesday that the phone call to Zelenskiy "wasn't President Trump's finest moment" but does not constitute "high crimes and misdemeanors", the terminology the Constitution uses for impeachable offenses.

The next step is for the politicians in the House of Representatives to vote on whether to go ahead with the trial. The call came days after Mr Trump ordered a freeze to some military assistance for Ukraine. Instead of sending the complaint to the inspector general, Maguire notified the White House. "We're at war. These people are sick", Trump says in the video obtained by Bloomberg.

The statement gave no indication that the resignation was connected with a telephone call between Zelenskiy and Donald Trump that is at the center of a formal impeachment inquiry into the USA president.

The president accused Democrats of a "witch hunt", the same as the 22-month Russian Federation investigation by former special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Trump says during his conversation with Zelenskiy he was only interested in making sure he would keep a promise he made while campaigning to address corruption in his country.

Mr Trump has repeatedly sought to discredit the whistleblower in recent days, accusing the anonymous Central Intelligence Agency officer of having a political motivation.

"Diplomacy and global relations do not forgive amateurism, they need a thoughtful attitude and professional approach", the party said.
