Mick Mulvaney subpoenaed in impeachment inquiry

Republicans asked to submit witness requests in public impeachment inquiry hearings

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council (NSC) director for European affairs who listened in on both calls, testified in the impeachment inquiry on October 29, telling lawmakers that he twice raised concerns about the conversation with the NSC's lead counsel. In the past week, they've released transcripts from those sessions, including Volker's, and most recently from National Security Council Ukraine specialist Alexander Vindman and former National Security Council Russia specialist Fiona Hill.

Republicans want to publicly question witnesses who would divert the conversation away from questions about Trump's behavior to allegations only tangentially related to the case, such as unfounded claims that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election and that the Bidens acted nefariously in their dealings with Ukraine.

Mr Trump has pushed an unproven accusation that then-Vice President Biden improperly tried to help his son by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire the country's prosecutor general.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is encouraging black voters in Georgia to get out and talk to their family and friends in support of President Donald Trump, saying he helped get criminal justice reform passed. "But it's a doable schedule, given where we're at and all the work that's been done thus far", Heck said. Yovanovitch was ousted in May on Trump's orders and Taylor replaced her; both have testified about their concerns with the administration's policy on Ukraine.

Democrats want to know if Trump withheld almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to get President Volodomyr Zelenskiy to publicly commit himself to investigating Joe Biden, a potential Trump rival in the 2020 presidential election, for corruption.

Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, must approve witness requests submitted by Republicans and are expected to reject the request for Hunter Biden and the unnamed whistleblower.

The impeachment hearings have been held behind closed doors but will be held in public next week.

Liverpool sense chance to leave City in their wake
I have no doubts. "But I'm not going to take the bus to Anfield on Sunday thinking I'm going to lose the game". You see the team, what is the weak point? Right now they are one of the strongest teams in the world.

That suit, filed by former deputy national security adviser Charles Kupperman, asks a court to decide which of two directives Kupperman must follow - one from Congress ordering him to testify, the other from the White House telling him not to.

Trump insisted earlier on November 8 he has not been damaged by testimony, and he and fellow Republicans complain the witnesses generally are relying on secondhand accounts of central events. Trump said Saturday he has no problem making details of that call public.

Unlike many other news sites, we have not put up a paywall. "There should not be impeachment hearings", Trump said.

Before departing on Saturday on a flight to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Trump said he probably would release on Tuesday the transcript of an April 21 call he made to congratulate Zelenskiy on his presidential election victory.

At one point in Vindman's testimony, his lawyer objected to questions from Republicans he believed were meant to draw out the identity of the whistleblower who filed the initial complaint.

Following the GOP's request, the whistleblower's attorney reiterated that his client is only willing to answer questions in writing. "He says he feels uncomfortable about it. Try and respect his feelings at this point".

The Senate is also now looking ahead, as the likelihood of impeachment grows, with Republicans there defending the President.
