New whistleblower could blow up Trump's main argument

New whistleblower could blow up Trump's main argument

Those texts show Sondland seeking to downplay the concerns of another US diplomat, William Taylor, that the United States was withholding the aid to Ukraine in order to secure its cooperation.

Democrats speak the documents are wanted to survey the sequence of events and the explanations within the back of the White House's decision.

Earlier, the New York Times reported that a second person may come forward and testify about the case, but it was not immediately clear whether Zaid's new client is the same person.

The original whistleblower, whose identity is not publicly known, also accused the White House of trying to "lock down" the call.

His co-counsel, Mr Bakaj, previously worked in the inspector general's offices at both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Department on whistleblower-related issues.

The Democrats have claimed that this amounted to breaking USA election law and are looking for more evidence to support the accusation, which Trump himself vocally denies and calls an attempted coup against him.

It later emerged the whistleblower was not present for the call and based the complaint on second-hand information.

A group of businessmen and GOP donors with ties to President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani attempted to persuade Ukrainian officials to install new management at the top of the country's state gas company, the Associated Press reported on Sunday.

Diplomatic text messages released by Democrats last week show that USA officials were involved in the effort to secure a public commitment from Ukraine to look into the business dealings of Hunter Biden.

"The president's real problem is that his behavior has finally gotten to a place where people are saying, 'Enough, '" Himes said.

Trump now risks impeachment for using his power to get dirt on a political opponent. Among them is Gordon Sondland, the USA ambassador to the European Union, another key figure in the probe. He said there was nothing wrong with Mr Trump's July conversation with Mr Zelenskiy and said the accusations look like a "political set-up".

Trump said, " Every single day we deliver. "The way that impeachment stops is with a Senate majority with me as majority leader".

A bit unusually, Trump stayed in the White House on Sunday rather than traveling or playing golf.

"The great Scam is being revealed!" Trump wrote at one point, continuing to paint himself as the victim of a "deep state" and hostile Democrats.

A new poll by Investor's Business Daily/TIPP showed 57% of respondents favor a Justice Department investigation on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden regarding their actions in Ukraine and China.

The elder Biden is among the front-runners for the Democratic nomination for president in the 2020 election. Please know that I'm not going anywhere.

"I doubt if the China comment was serious, to tell you the truth, "Republican Sen".

Perry, the former governor of Texas and up to now a lower-profile but active member of Trump's Cabinet, has made repeated trips to Ukraine and met often with Ukranian officials, including Zelenskiy.

During a gaggle with reporters on Thursday, Mr. Trump called on the Ukrainian government to start a "major investigation" into Hunter Biden, who also sat on the board of a natural gas company in Ukraine.

Demings was on Fox News Sunday and Jordan appeared on This Week on ABC.
