US President Donald Trump on Saturday (local time) said that he will release the transcript of his second phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky next week, "probably" on Tuesday. "Who says you're in charge of Ukraine?" she said.

In New Hampshire, Biden responded that the president's daughter should look at his tax returns for evidence he didn't cash in as vice president or a legislator.

Trump said the second transcript would probably be released on Tuesday. "It's a witch hunt and it should never happen to another president".

As reported by TheBlaze, House Republicans also revealed on Saturday they intend to call on Hunter Biden to testify before investigators, along with the whistleblower who filed the complaint about the call.

Vindman had listened to the call and said "there was no doubt" Trump was pressuring Ukraine for investigations that could help his 2020 reelection campaign.

Her father entered politics after making a fortune in real estate. Hours later, he denied having said so.

Members of Congress must follow strict rules while in office to avoid financial and other conflicts of interest.

There was no hinting around, it was a straight-out trade, two key White House officials told impeachment investigators.

Vindman testified that Gordon Sondland, a Trump donor serving as ambassador to the European Union, told the visiting officials that if they hoped to win that coveted face-to-face meeting, "the Ukrainians would have to deliver an investigation into the Bidens". It remains unclear whether President Trump approved the State Department's decision or not.

Trump's daughter and presidential aide Ivanka Trump granted a rare interview while on a trip to Morocco.

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. "Because President Trump should be afforded an opportunity to confront his accusers, the anonymous whistleblower should testify". The president has also sent tweets calling on the individual to come forward.

The top Republican on the committee, California Rep. Devin Nunes, said Democrats are conducting a one-sided inquiry and it's important to hear from certain people familiar with Ukrainian corruption and political machinations. She said she heard Sondland mention Burisma.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council (NSC) director for European affairs who listened in on both calls, testified in the impeachment inquiry on October 29, telling lawmakers that he twice raised concerns about the conversation with the NSC's lead counsel.

Democrats leading the impeachment inquiry are expected to reject that request. "So, rather than waiting a year and letting the people decide based on his record, based on his accomplishments, this new effort has commenced". "But to us, it's really been like this from the beginning".

"But here's the deal: Read the transcript. Crowds went insane!" White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who traveled with the first couple to the game, tweeted on Saturday.
