Yes, the inquiry continues over the weekend.
- Philip Reeker, acting assistant secretary of European and Eurasian Affairs arrived on Capitol Hill to testify in front of the House’s Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs committees.
- Reeker is expected to be asked about what he knows about the role of Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in the administration’s dealings with Ukraine and, in particular, the removal of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch in the spring.
Trump spent his morning rage tweeting:
Giuliani says that he needs money after mentioning his connections to the kingdom of Bahrain. He totals the desired funds at “a few hundred thousand” specifically. The end of the conversation is garbled, when the other man starts speaking.
Giuliani butt-dialed Shapiro almost three weeks before that message, when the reporter was at a family birthday party. Shapiro saw the call but let it got to voicemail.
In that accidental message, Giuliani unloads on the Bidens.
