Here are the latest developments in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump:
- Subpoena deadline: The Energy Department said it won't comply with a subpoena issued in the House impeachment inquiry. In a letter, Assistant Secretary of Energy Melissa Burnison said the request is for confidential communications "that are potentially protected by executive privilege and would require careful review."
- Support for impeachment grows: Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Trump should be impeached, a major switch for a former Republican presidential candidate who had previously said there was not enough evidence to impeach the President.
- Mick Mulvaney's comments: President Trump was asked to clarify his acting chief of staff's remarks in the briefing room yesterday. Trump responded: “I think he clarified it.” Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Mulvaney’s comments a “confession” — and said it’s an example of the administration trying to make “lawlessness normal and even make lawlessness a virtue.”
- Rudy Giuliani: Career diplomat George Kent told congressional investigators in his closed-door testimony this week that Giuliani asked the State Department and the White House to grant a visa to the former Ukrainian official who Joe Biden had pushed to have removed when he was vice president, according to four people familiar with Kent's testimony.
- Republicans blast inquiry: House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy said he expects a vote to censure Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff will “come up Monday.” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan slammed the House impeachment probe as "partisan" and "unfair," saying Schiff is "the new special counsel."
