At the heart of the impeachment inquiry is a 25 July phone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to open a corruption investigation into former US Vice President Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, and into a discredited theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, meddled in the 2016 US election. In the wake of their testimony, both have also been attacked by the President as "never Trumpers". Dwight D. Eisenhower suffered a heart attack in his first term, in 1955, and a reassessment of his medical records and public information four decades later found that the information released to the public was recast to serve the president's political interests ahead of his 1956 reelection campaign.
But Letter did not disclose which part of Trump's responses were suspected as being false.
Democrats, Republicans React to Impeachment Testimony as Hearings Enter Week 2
Sondland reportedly replied, yes, Zelenskiy will do "anything you ask him to". The president only cares about "big stuff", Sondland said.
A congressional official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Volker's statements were "definitely being closely reviewed" by Democrats. One of those people, David Holmes, the political counsel at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, said he heard Trump's voice through the earpiece of the phone because the president was talking so loud, according to testimony obtained by The Associated Press.
Republicans argue the money was given to Ukraine without any investigation and there was no quid pro quo. Vindman said, "It is improper for the President of the United States to demand a foreign government investigate a US citizen and political opponent".
Even so, his lawyers negotiated strict limits on what kind of questions could be put, and in dozens of instances, Trump said he could not "recall" the facts.

The project is to be produced by Kevin Turen ("Euphoria"), Mike Nilon and Saturn Films, and Nicolas Cage's company. After all, who else is there that can bring justice to the role of Nicholas Cage , then Nicholas Cage himself.
Last week, Schiff told Republican representative Jim Jordan that he had no idea who the whistleblower was and would work to ensure that his or her identity remain protected. He should turn over the documents Congress subpoenaed. That means members of Congress should get to ask the questions they want.
The rough transcript of the July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukraine's leader also showed that the whistleblower had accurately summarized the conversation in the complaint sent to the acting director of national intelligence. "I just don't know if he read it", Williams testified earlier in her closed-door House interview. The president tweeted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "suggested on Sunday's DEFACE THE NATION that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt".
Williams is a State Department employee who is detailed to Pence's office and a career foreign service officer. The State Department didn't comment. Later Tuesday, the House was to hear from former NSC official Timothy Morrison and Kurt Volker, the former Ukraine special envoy.
Doorbell Camera Captures Meteor Lighting Up Missouri Sky
Several residents in the Missouri city witnessed a dazzling flash of light and a loud boom at around 8.55pm. It's not likely that the meteor last night made a significant impact on earth, Snyder added.
Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, have defended their actions in asking Ukraine to investigate the Bidens by citing a video of Joe Biden from 2018. He said he had been surprised and troubled by what was said on the July 25 call between Trump and Zelensky.
