Pelosi repeated her argument that the president's July telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in which Trump asked him for "a favor" was sufficient reason to move forward with the investigation.
Asked about his rhetoric potentially endangering the whistleblower, Trump brushed off the question. "You just gave me information about [an intelligence community] report, none of which we've seen", he said.
Niinisto says "we all know Europe needs U.S. but I say United States of America also needs Europe". Given the "stark and urgent warnings" the inspector general for the intelligence community has delivered to Congress, Cummings said, the panel has "no choice but to issue this subpoena".
Any attempt by the White House to hide information related to Trump's attempt to "coerce" Zelensky to find dirt on Biden "will be strengthening" the Democrats' case on obstruction of justice, Schiff argued. A whistleblower complaint involving Trump's conversation with Zelensky estimated that a dozen US officials were on the line.
The subpoena will be issued on Friday, October 4, if the White House does not comply before then.

And they warned, "He should immediately cease intimidating Department witnesses in order to protect himself and the President". "It's an incitement of violence".
Trump doubled down on calling it a scandal, but added that in his esteem, Rep. Adam Schiff "probably helped write it".
Schiff's explanation, however, did little to quell the outrage of his Republican colleagues who were already on the defensive following Pelosi's announcement last Tuesday of the impeachment inquiry into Trump.
During that call, Zelenskiy expressed appreciation for USA defense help and Trump responded by saying, "I would like you to do us a favor though" - and asked the Ukrainian leader to work with Attorney General Bill Barr and Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on an investigation into the family of former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump's potential rival in the 2020 presidential election.
The letter says that includes any threats to condition USA aid on Ukrainian cooperation or to investigate Biden.
