Trump tells impeachment jokes at annual turkey pardon event

Trump is not required to attend the hearing.

The House intelligence committee's report on its impeachment investigation may come out as soon as next week.

The House Oversight Committee wasted no time in filing a lawsuit against Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, suing both Trump appointees for failure to respond to subpoenas demanding documents.

The trial, scheduled to begin at 10:00 (1500 GMT), will have a legal expert, who has not been identified, as a witness.

"I hope that he chooses to take part within the inquiry, straight or by way of counsel, as different presidents have completed earlier than him".

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler sent a letter to Trump on Tuesday notifying him of the hearing and inviting the President or his counsel to participate, including asking questions of the witnesses ...

The White House has claimed there was no link between the military aid suspension and Trump's request for Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden and his family.

The House Judiciary Committee is set to take over the impeachment probe of President Donald Trump, scheduling a hearing for next week as they push closer to a possible vote on actual charges of "high crimes and misdemeanors".

But Senate Republicans have shown little inclination to remove Trump, their party's leader, who is seeking re-election in 2020.

Trump has described his call with Zelenskiy as "perfectly normal", and dismissed the impeachment investigation as a "hoax" and the congressional hearings as "a kangaroo court".

President Donald Trump was reportedly aware of the Ukraine whistleblower complaint when he unsuspended military assistance to the country, which "blows apart" his argument about why the aid was lifted, according to a former acting USA solicitor general who has argued numerous Supreme Court cases.

Trump denies wrongdoing and has dismissed the inquiry as a sham by Democrats who want to overturn the result of the 2016 United States presidential election.

Technically, only Butter was granted the full pardon, based on a public poll, while Bread will serve as an alternate.

Adam Schiff has also said that the investigation will continue even after the publication of the report containing the case for the president's impeachment, ruling out further depositions or public hearings.

"Butter, I wish you a lot of luck".

"It seems the Democrats are accusing me of being too soft on turkey".

"I think the polls are interesting, but certainly our work has to be tied to the evidence, the law and our oath of office", Dean said, adding, "To have half the folks, 50 percent of the folks, not just supporting impeachment but removal, to me, that's an impressive number".

Mr Nadler mentioned in an announcement that he had written to Mr Trump inviting him to the listening to subsequent month.
