Trump: The White House will publish the minutes of another call with Ukraine
"You want to have a transcript of the other call, the second call, and I'm ready to provide that transcript," the President told reporters Saturday on the tarmac at Andrews Joint Base before boarding went from Air Force One.  Trump said he spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the first time in April, but his communication with Zelensky in July has so far been the subject of House democratization investigations. In September, the White House issued a rough copy of this July 25 appeal for a claim by whistleblowers claiming Trump had requested "interference" from a foreign country to support its 2020 presidential campaign.
Trump denied having done anything wrong.
"You will read the second call and tell me if something is wrong," he said. The appeal was made months before the July meeting at the center of the impeachment investigation.
Trump also claimed he did not care if Congress's impeachment trial took place behind closed doors or in public because he said they should not happen at all.
"There should be nothing, there should be no hearing on impeachment," he said, calling the testimony "all third-party knowledge".  While Trump dismissed some of the importance of witnesses who were previously privately dismissed, the witnesses have provided important information to congressional investigators. Some said there was a return and the Trump government called on the Ukrainian government to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter for US military assistance.
There is no evidence of misconduct in Ukraine by either Joe or Hunter Biden.
A letter from the GOP
On Saturday, the Republicans of the House sent a list of witnesses they wanted to testify in the course of the impeachment investigation of the Chamber against President Donald Trump and Ukraine.
In a letter to the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, Republicans called the anonymous whistleblower, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, former US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, senior State Department official, David Hale, and Tim Morrison, the leading adviser to Russia and Europe in the National Security Council. Saturday was the Republican deadline to file the request.
