Schiff talked about on Saturday that the Intelligence Committee "is evaluating the Minority's look requests and might perhaps perhaps well give due consideration to witnesses within the scope of the impeachment inquiry, as voted on by the Dwelling".

The testimony details how top United States officials were alarmed that Trump had outsourced Ukraine policy to his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who had pushed top Ukraine officials to publicly announce an investigation into the Bidens and to pursue a conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections to help Democrats.

Without getting into specifics, Schiff said he won't let the hearings serve as a vehicle to conduct "sham investigations" into the Bidens or the 2016 election. On Wednesday, Americans will hear from Bill Taylor, the USA special envoy to Ukraine; and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs.

While Vice President Joe Biden was handling worldwide relations with Ukraine on behalf of the Obama administration, his son, Hunter, was being paid $50,000 a month to sit on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, despite having no natural energy experience. And Vindman wanted to add that Trump said, "there are recordings" of Biden, referring to a speech the then-vice president gave about rooting out corruption in Ukraine.

Trump has maintained that his July call with Zelensky was "perfect", and the White House has repeatedly blasted the House investigation as a "witch hunt".

Vindman heard Trump say about CrowdStrike, "They say you have it".

The whistleblower complaint alleges Trump pressured Zelenskiy, during a July 25 phone call, to investigate Biden and his son.

Trump also said he was thinking about revealing information from a first telephone call he had last April with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

"They want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide that. There shouldn't be impeachment hearings", the president said, calling the testimony so far "all third-hand knowledge".

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened to Trump's July 25 phone call with Zelenskiy, said "there was no doubt" that Trump wanted Ukraine to launch investigations into political rivals, according to a transcript of his deposition.

The Trump administration halt on aid to Ukraine - including a separate $250 million package of military aid from the US Department of Defence - has become a central issue in the impeachment trial of the US president, after a September whistleblower complaint alleged that Trump ordered the aid held back to force Ukraine to investigate whether the business dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his Hunter Biden in Ukraine involved corrupt practices.

He told lawmakers that the details about the edits are not just the way he remembers them.

The testimony details how prime U.S. officers were haunted that Trump had outsourced Ukraine coverage to his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who had pushed prime Ukraine officers to publicly pronounce an investigation into the Bidens and to pursue a conspiracy belief that Ukraine interfered within the 2016 elections to help Democrats.

President Trump addresses impeachment inquiry, Veterans Day Parade and Alabama-LSU football game.

The president fiercely denies seeking any quid pro quo with Ukraine.
