Trump Impeachment Enquiry Progressing Rapidly, John Kelly said he Warned the US President about Hiring "Yes Man"

  • Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff told media that the lawmakers are making rapid progress in the Trump impeachment inquiry. The acting assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, Philip Reeker, reportedly told the lawmakers that he is aware of the fact that US security aid to Ukraine was withheld during the June-August period. However, he also said that he’s not aware of whether it was withheld for pressurizing Kiev into launching an investigation for helping Trump win the US Presidential election in 2020. One of the sources reportedly said that Philip Reeker testified before the lawmakers that he had heard that the resistance of releasing the US security aid to Ukraine was coming from the White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. In Georgia, during the Washington Examiner's Sea Island Summit political conference, the former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has said that he warned the US President Donald Trump about hiring “yes man”, allegedly pointing at Mick Mulvaney and other advisors. Robert Luskin, the lawyer of Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, told a renowned news outlet that during Sondland’s testimony on October 17, his client replied in affirmative when he was asked by a House member whether the meeting between the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the US President Donald Trump was arranged in lieu of assurance by Ukraine in launching a probe on the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son.
