Impeachment inquiry: President ‘overheard asking about investigations’

President Donald Trump was allegedly overheard asking about “investigations” he wanted Ukraine to pursue, a senior diplomat told the impeachment inquiry.

Top diplomats have given evidence about accusations the president asked Ukraine’s leader to investigate political rival Joe Biden and Mr Biden’s son.

Mr Trump said he was “too busy” to watch the hearing in Washington but did retweet videos of the inquiry while it was taking place.

The president, who has repeatedly described the inquiry as a “witch hunt”, also criticised the “television lawyers” appearing.

Mr Trump said after the hearing that he didn’t watch “one minute” of the testimony, adding that he will release details of his first call with Ukraine’s president on Thursday.
