Colonel: Diplomat said Ukraine must probe Bidens - 47abc

The heart of the impeachment inquiry is the accusation that Mr. Trump used his position to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into former U.S. Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son Hunter's connection to a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, as well as an investigation into alleged election interference in 2016.

Democrats subpoenaed Mr Mulvaney late on Thursday as the White House signalled that he would not appear.

House investigators are releasing key transcripts from days of closed-door interviews in the impeachment inquiry as they prepare for public sessions with witnesses next week.

Lawmakers leaving Williams' deposition said her testimony lined up with the accounts of others.

They want to question Mulvaney about whether he was directly involved with President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani to withhold almost $400 million in U.S. military aid to Ukraine.

While her father remains fixated on unmasking the original whistleblower, Ivanka Trump downplayed the significance of the person's identity, saying it's "not particularly relevant" to the inquiry, since the anonymous person wasn't on the call. Both officials testified about their concerns as Trump pressed Ukraine to investigate Democrats. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday that three State Department witnesses will appear in two hearings next Wednesday and Friday: Taylor, career department official George Kent and Marie Yovanovitch, the former USA ambassador to Ukraine.
