Majority expect Trump to win in 2020

Joe Biden Leads in Nevada Polls Among Democrats Poll: More Democrats want Trump out than did Nixon during Watergate

"As I understood the reason for investigating Burisma was to cast Vice President Biden in a bad light", Taylor said, according to a transcript of closed-door testimony he delivered as part of an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump.

The testimony, taken in private last month, was released as the House prepares for the second phase of the impeachment inquiry, open hearings that could within several weeks lead to articles of impeachment being passed by the House. Forty percent said they approved of the way Democrats were handling the impeachment inquiry compared to 46 percent who disapproved.

Mr. Trump lost the popular vote in 2016 but won enough Electoral College votes to secure the presidency by carrying enough of those key states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

"President Trump never said to the Ukrainian President 'do this and you'll get your aid.' It is simply not here", Conway told CNN's Dana Bash, referencing Trump's demand that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son for alleged corruption.

Televised public hearings featuring US officials testifying in Congress about alleged wrongdoing by Trump could crowd out other issues like the economy and immigration as voters turn their minds to the November 2020 election. Joe Biden is a leading Democratic contender to face Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

"It's clear abuse of presidential power".

United States scientists identify new HIV strain, first in almost 20 years
In order for a new subtype to be declared, at least three cases must be detected and verified independently of each other. In this new study the team could map out the whole genome of the new strain and confirm the existence of the new subtype.

The Trump camp says the House impeachment probe is all fragment of the left's long-working "witch hunt" against the president - and is selling "Quit the Witch Hunt" shirts for $30 a pop. Marie Yovanovitch, who was abruptly pulled from her post as USA ambassador to Ukraine in May, will testify on November 15.

The House intelligence panel, which is leading the inquiry with two other committees, has also sought testimony from other key witnesses, including acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, who the White House said will not appear, and former national security adviser John Bolton, whose participation remains unclear.

The parties remain dug in, with 4 of 5 Democrats supporting impeachment and a similar proportion of Republicans opposing impeachment, the poll reported.

According to a POLITICO/Morning Consult survey released on Wednesday, 56 percent of voters expect the president to be reelected next year, including 85 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents.

At least one, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, this week told reporters he did not plan to read the transcripts even as hundreds of pages have begun to be released.

Sondland, a hotelier and Trump donor, returned on Monday and told House investigators that he, in fact, had told a Ukrainian official that Kiev was unlikely to get almost $400 million in USA military aid unless it probed Trump's domestic political rivals, the transcripts showed.
