Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, served on Burisma's board of directors.
Biden is a top contender for the Democratic nomination and could encounter Trump in the standard election up coming calendar year. All three have already testified behind closed doors. "That's not only distasteful, but it's a misuse of public office and it would be an official misuse of public office if it was anyone other than the president".
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. Three-quarters of Republicans agree with Trump, while a similar share of Democrats don't, and independents are divided, as they are on the question of fairness. "The last President ...", Conway began.
"President Trump's reelection prospects seem to be energizing voter enthusiasm across the political spectrum", said Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult's vice president.
USA government officials have since stepped forward in the impeachment inquiry and testified that the Trump administration wanted Ukraine to announce the investigations in order to resume the $400 million in security aid that the United States had paused.
"That was my clear understanding, security assistance money would not come until the president (Zelenskiy) committed to pursue the investigation", Taylor said. One of the biggest scandals to fall under Trump's belt is the involvement of Russian Federation with the 2016 Presidential Election.
"That was the nightmare", Taylor said.
If the Democratic-controlled House votes to impeach Trump, the Republican-controlled Senate would then hold a trial on whether to remove Trump from office.
The top USA diplomat in Ukraine, William Taylor, told lawmakers he believed the push to investigate Ukrainian energy company Burisma and its ties to Hunter Biden was motivated by a desire to attack Hunter's father, former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Whether you feel that Trump's request was appropriate or not, the conversation clearly involved some form of quid pro quo based on statements directly from the White House".
