During that conversation, Trump asked Zelensky whether officials could look into why a Ukranian prosecutor was sacked while they were investigating an energy company upon which Joe Biden's son, Hunter, served as a board member.

USA authorities have taken security measures to protect a U.S. intelligence official who filed a whistleblower complaint that sparked an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, a source familiar with the case told Reuters.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Using her senior position on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, one of the three committees primarily responsible for the ongoing impeachment inquiry, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today announced she will attend two impeachment inquiry transcribed interviews this week.

Meanwhile, the former mayor of New York City is a central figure in that alleged campaign.

"Nancy Pelosi knew of all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan "Whistleblower" & lawyer", he tweeted. "And what we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court, and Chairman Schiff is acting like a malicious Captain Kangaroo".

"The position I'm stating is now the position of the administration", Giuliani added.

Congressman Abraham introduced H. Res. 620, a resolution that, if passed through the House, would remove her as Speaker and expel her from the House of Representatives.

Democrats are reportedly concerned that Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee "could learn and then leak the identity of the whistleblower, who has agreed to answer questions before the intelligence committees in both the House and Senate", per the Washington Post.

Schiff, who is leading the Democratic inquiry, has come in for particularly withering criticism.

He wrote: 'Other information obtained during the preliminary review, however, supports the Complainant's allegation that, among other things, during the call the President 'sought to pressure the Ukrainian leader to take actions to help the President's 2020 reelection bid'.
