The attorney representing the "whistleblower" who filed a complaint against President Trump with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, Mark Zaid, is doubling down on comments he made in 2017 about supporting a coup against President Trump. The letter (pdf) misidentifies the date of Saturday as November 8 when it's actually November 9.

Meanwhile, Schiff has set public hearings as part of his "impeachment" inquiry for next week. In the letter, Schiff highlighted questions that will be used to determine whether a witness's testimony is pertinent.

Trump had flown into a rage after they reported that he had asked Barr to hold a press conference declaring that he had not broken any laws when he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate 2020 rival Joe Biden and right-wing conspiracy about a DNC server.

Democrats launched the impeachment investigation in August after the whistle-blower sent a formal complaint to the inspector general of the intelligence community, alleging that Mr Trump improperly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a July 25 phone call to help the USA leader's upcoming re-election campaign.

Zelensky has repeatedly emphasized that he felt no pressure during the call.

GOP lawmakers have until Saturday to submit their witness requests to Schiff.

He went on to say Democrats have no case, except the case against them.
