House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said three State Department witnesses will appear in two hearings Wednesday and Friday: the USA ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, career department official George Kent and Marie Yovanovitch, the former US ambassador to Ukraine.

A State Department legal team said that the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) could not legally block aid, Bloomberg reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. Lawmakers will hear testimony from acting US ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor and deputy assistant Secretary of State George Kent on Wednesday and will hear from former USA ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Friday.

Democrats want to know if Trump withheld almost $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to get President Volodomyr Zelenskiy to publicly commit himself to investigating Joe Biden, a potential Trump rival in the 2020 presidential election, for corruption.

Trump also wanted Zelensky to investigate allegations the Democratic National Committee was working with Ukraine officials in 2016 to find information that would be damaging to the Trump presidential campaign.

Democrats launched their bogus impeachment inquiry the night before Trump released the transcript of his call with Zelensky.

"We have another transcript coming out which is very important", Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews before leaving for a visit to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

"They want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm willing to provide that".

Trump said Friday that he was "not concerned about anything" when asked about the impeachment inquiry.

Trump said the second transcript would probably be released on Tuesday.

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) speaks during a media briefing after a House vote approving rules for an impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Trump on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., October 31, 2019.

"This inquiry is not, and will not serve, however, as a vehicle to undertake the same sham investigations into the Bidens or 2016 that the President pressed Ukraine to conduct for his personal political benefit, or to facilitate the President's effort to threaten, intimidate, and retaliate against the whistleblower who courageously raised the initial alarm", he said.

Hill described Bolton as being angry about the administration's political maneuvers, and she told of his efforts to distance himself from them.

-Investigators in the inquiry on Friday released hundreds of pages of testimony from Fiona Hill, a former White House Russia adviser, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer assigned to the National Security Council.
