Defending his Ukraine role, Biden says he isn’t ‘going anywhere’

CNN flat-out refuses to air Trump ad about Biden-Ukraine ties — in part because it mocks CNN anchors

CNN said it won't run a pair of ads launched by the Trump re-election campaign, claiming the 30-second clips contain factual inaccuracies linked to the whistleblower complaint and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The panels gave Pence a deadline of October 15 to respond to the request.

Committees on Foreign Affairs, Oversight, and Intelligence are seeking documents from Pence as part of the impeachment inquiry, including information about and communications related to President Trump's April 21 and July 25 phone calls with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Yes, Connyoung, like you say President Trump is now making the same appeal to China as he made to Ukraine to look into the Biden family's activities over the past several years. "But when President Trump asks Ukraine to investigate corruption, the Democrats want to impeach him", it continues to clips of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Also under scrutiny is Pence's September 1 meeting with Zelensky in Warsaw, Poland.

The White House is preparing to formally object to the Democrats' impeachment inquiry as soon as Friday, saying it won't cooperate with the probe because it was initiated without a vote of the House.

President Donald Trump is insisting that his call for China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden will have no bearing on upcoming high-stakes trade talks with the nation.

But he added he hasn't directly asked Chinese leader Xi Jinping to investigate yet.

Kurt Volker, who resigned last week as Mr Trump's special envoy to Ukraine, gave the messages to the House committees in a closed-door meeting on Thursday, and the chairmen released them later in the day.

The Trump administration has signaled it does not intend to cooperate with the House investigation on Ukraine, just as it has stonewalled previous requests related to allegations of obstruction of justice and efforts to obtain the President's tax returns and other financial documents.

Trump is telling reporters at the White House Friday that, "one thing has absolutely nothing to do with the other".

The ad is geared to show a Democratic audience that Biden, who polls show battling Sens.

Viktor Shokin, then top Ukrainian prosecutor, who led an investigation into Burisma Holdings that paid Biden's son $50,000 monthly as a member of its board, was ousted after Biden threatened to withhold a $1 billion loan to the country unless Shokin was removed from office.
