Mike Esper  The Democrats are investigating whether Trump has withheld $ 250 million in military aid from Ukraine and urge their leader to investigate the unfounded allegations of corruption against the son of former Vice President Joe Biden the Democratic leader who faces Trump in next year's elections. 19659003] The Democratic chairmen of three House committees sent a summons to Esper on October 7, urging him to reply by October 15, warning him that this would be evidence of disability The White House, Pat Cipollone, sent high-level Democrats an extraordinary eight-page letter in which several blanket and false claims were made about the legal basis of the impeachment investigation.  3] Cipollone declared the investigation inadmissible and wrote that Trump could not allow his administration to comply with the investigation and that the executive could not be expected to participate in it.
The impeachment investigation began after a CIA whistleblower announced it The Trump of US Intelligence, Trump, withheld the supply of military equipment to force the Ukrainian government to investigate Biden and his son Hunter.
The White House then released a partial copy of a July 25 phone call between Trump and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, which confirmed that Trump summoned Zelenskiy to deal with the Bidens and a conspiracy theory in connection with Russia's intervention in the 2016 elections ,
Trump denies that there is a return, despite his own White House transcript, which shows when Zelenskiy addressed the US military aid, Trump said: "I want you to do us a favor."
The impeachment investigation has also not received ext messages that were sent between high-ranking US officials in the region. A high-ranking US diplomat in the Ukraine, William Taylor, said in a message to US Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, "I find it crazy to withhold security support for aid in a political campaign."
One possible Blow for Trump: Sondland, once a loyalist, is reportedly preparing to testify that Trump might consider the Biden investigation and provision of aid in return.
The Washington Post reported that the ambassador would report to Congress this week that he was working to persuade Ukraine to announce an investigation into an energy company that Hunter Biden was working in, and as an incentive to hold a meeting in the White House for Zelenskiy to plan.
According to reports, Sondland claims he did not realize that the company was affiliated with the Bidens.
"It was a return, but not a corrupt one," the Post reported on a person who was familiar with Sondland's statements and summed up Sondland's position.
Esper did not do that On Sunday, I was asked if Trump had ever explained to him why the President reportedly violated the views of Pentagon officials and withheld help for Ukraine against separatists with Russian support in the East fights.
"I have nothing to do Share this with you," Esper said on Fox News Sunday.
A lawyer from Hunter Biden said on Sunday his client would quit his job with a Chinese company, a position that has attracted further attacks by Trump and his allies.
Biden would not be involved in the boards of foreign companies if his father were elected president, the lawyer said.
