The video message posted on Twitter came in response to Democratic lawmakers' investigation of accusations that Trump tried to strong-arm the Ukrainian president into providing dirt on Joe Biden, one of the American President's main 2020 election rivals.

"AOC Plus 3" refers to New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, Massachusetts Representative Ayanna Pressley and Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib, a group of freshman Democratic congresswomen known as "the squad".

"Ultimately, if I were to say yes and he were to say no, I can't testify", Mr Giuliani told CNN Friday.

Although he admits he's still processing all the attention he's gotten since the story broke, Howard says that he hopes to pursue a career in journalism because he believes in the field's mission. "Everyone's looking for an "aha" moment that I don't think was there".

"The Ukrainian people and their president are not stupid", Schiff explained.

During his TV appearances, Giuliani not only repeated the allegations but also brandished what he said were affidavits that support them and claimed that Trump "was framed by the Democrats".

"If he decides that he wants me to testify, of course I'll testify", Mr Giuliani said during a series of television appearances where impeachment dominated the discussions. The department said Barr will not recuse himself from Ukraine-related investigations.

The White House was beset by leaks of highly sensitive information in the early days of Mr Trump's presidency.

Conway addressed reporters outside the White House on Friday and accused Pelosi of taking the inquiry plunge- not because of new evidence- but because she was taking orders from men around her. Conway said a move like that is the worst thing a "woman in power can do". Justin Amash was the only House Republican to publicly argue that Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct before announcing this summer he was leaving the Republican Party.

The Ukraine reports raised serious concerns that Trump's actions have jeopardized national security and the integrity of US elections, Pelosi said.

Ukrainian prosecutors never made any pronouncements of criminal wrongdoing at Burisma or by Hunter Biden.

Miller was predictably aggressive, claiming "a partisan hit-job does not make you a whistleblower" and echoing Trump's words to U.S. diplomats at the United Nations by saying: "The behavior of this individual is close to a spy".

The Justice Department was first made aware of Trump's call when a Central Intelligence Agency lawyer mentioned the complaint from the unidentified Central Intelligence Agency officer on August 14, said a person familiar with the matter who wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke anonymously. He spent Sunday morning tweeting approvingly about Fox News' coverage of the impeachment scandal.
