these are the business groups that was on. the road to the slaughter. injuries. the eve of a phone call between trump and ukrainian president blow them is that is what triggered the whistleblowers complained it's accused trump of pushing selenski to investigate his leading democratic rival in the 2020 u.s. presidential election joe biden and his son things live this monday house intelligence committee chair adam schiff subpoenaed to us by chief joseph mcgwire to make him explain why he initially hadn't passed the whistleblowers letter to the committee whistleblower by their very act of coming forward as showing more dedication to country more of an understanding of the president's oath of office and the president himself. in the tense committee hearing mcguire defended consulting the white house before releasing the whistleblowers reports the director

a very moving story of the focus today very much is on this continued effort by the democrats to push forward with their impeachment inquiry we heard from the speaker nancy pelosi and she had some very strong statements to make and she was referring to she said there was a sense of urgency in many respects in there they should try and wrap up their investigation by thanksgiving which of course is the end of november and she focused once again we heard it in the report there the cover up of the cover up she also had words to say about the president saying it goes beyond irresponsible but of course of the other side the republicans have been scrambling to 3 to say you know at this point inquiry is baseless and we've also been hearing from many you know members within the republican party and of course president trump who have essentially been trying to this is gratis the people at the center of these
allegations now in a not a public what is the case that democrats are trying to make. ok we'll try to break it down for you later because this is it's a big story with many elements to it essentially what the democrats are looking at is president roh believed he was seeking foreign help from a conversation from the ukrainian president selenski he was also accused of using military aid is a bargaining tool with regards to the aid which the democrats are claiming he withheld in order for him. asking for a favor from president selenski and also with regards to how long it took for the complaint made by the whistleblower there focusing also on that why did it take so long and they're investigating that at length and you know they've been saying that you know focusing as well on the fact that you know it was a serious of flagrant abuse and violation of the law by president trump that's what
the democrats are saying at the moment so what comes next what can we expect well like i said i mean the democrats are pushing forward they want this to take place swiftly this investigation nancy pelosi has also been saying that she would she's been she has been giving away too much but media here is reporting that behind closed doors 'd she says she wants this investigation to ruffle pretty quickly in the next couple of months up most so that it doesn't lose momentum and also they've been saying within the democrats you know the best way to deal with this is that it doesn't sort of take center stage considering that next year the presidential race is going to be in full swing and they don't want this dominating it. at all next year so essentially wrap it up as quickly as possible they don't want this to be a long drawn out process meanwhile pablo a president donald trump has pushed back how is this all playing out with his base and the general public. well later we spoke about it you know before that here in
the united states impeachment is not very popular and both saying that this is a very different situation it's unprecedented in many respects you know because we're dealing with a very unique situation but you know we've heard from president trump in a series of tweets he has been going on the offensive and you know he and many other senior republicans are sort of taking tactics trying to discredit those at the center of this complaint and so that's sort of the approach that we're seeing at the moment. as the best defensive publicly at least reporting from washington thank you. well as i know about some of the other stories making news around the world. egyptian security forces have sealed off car was prominent at the harir square to prevent expected protests against president apple fits a c.c. well several nearby subway stations have also been shut for alleged maintenance closures come amid a harsh security clampdown following anti-corruption demonstrations across egypt
