Trump has repeatedly called the impeachment inquiry a ‘witch hunt’ by Democrats and says he said and did nothing improper in his conversations and foreign policy with Ukraine

Public hearings for the impeachment proceedings commenced on Capitol Hill Wednesday with testimony from both acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent.
This follows several closed-door hearings over the past few weeks of those who either have knowledge or were involved in Trump’s Ukraine dealings and policy.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch provided testimony last month, but will appear for a public hearing on Friday and so far, the Democrat-led investigation announced there will be eight more witnesses appearing next week.
The hearings next week will include questioning of former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland and former White House Russia expert Fiona Hill – all of whom already answered the panel’s questions in closed-door hearings.
Trump has forbid administration officials and aides from complying with congressional subpoenas involving the impeachment inquiry.
He claims no wrongdoing and maintains his calls with his Ukrainian counterpart were ‘perfect.’
The impeachment inquiry stemmed from an anonymous whistle-blower complaint made public in September that alleged Trump engaged in an improper call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky over the summer.

The White House released a transcript of the July 25 call, which revealed the president asked Zelensky to launch a probe into political rival and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
Democrats claim it also exhibits a quid pro quo set by the president of millions in military aid in exchange for the investigation.
Republican ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes sent a letter to Democratic Chairman Adam Schiff with a list of witnesses the GOP desired to be called as part of the investigation – including the whistle-blower and Hunter Biden.
Schiff said he would not approve the request.
Trump has raged on Twitter over the impeachment proceedings, which he calls a ‘witch hunt,’ the same rhetoric he used when bashing Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in the first two years of his presidency.
‘READ THE TRANSCRIPT!’ Trump posted to Twitter ahead of the public hearing.
He then retweeted several posts expressing support of the president and denouncing impeachment.
