Diplomat says President Trump asked EU ambassador about ‘the investigations’

The closed doors of the Trump impeachment investigation are swinging wide open. The nation and the world will have the chance to see and hear for themselves for the first time about President Donald Trump’s actions toward Ukraine and consider whether they are, in fact, impeachable offenses.It’s a remarkable and historic moment, even for a White House full of them.All on TV, committee leaders will set the stage as two seasoned diplomats, William Taylor, the former infantry officer now charge d’affaires in Ukraine, and George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary in Washington, telling the striking, if sometimes complicated story of a president allegedly using foreign policy for personal and political gain ahead of the 2020 election.PGlmcmFtZSBzcmM9J2h0dHBzOi8vY2RuLmtuaWdodGxhYi5jb20vbGlicy90aW1lbGluZTMvbGF0ZXN0L2VtYmVkL2luZGV4Lmh0bWw/c291cmNlPTE2dmFVRVl2bGpOQ2RCZlhxSndXMnVpRDVFMS1ZeGplTjZhbU9wNG9sUF9ZJmZvbnQ9RGVmYXVsdCZsYW5nPWVuJmluaXRpYWxfem9vbT0yJmhlaWdodD02NTAnIHdpZHR…

Hordaland County, home of the Store Ishaug mountain where the blade was uncovered, announced the discovery.A local man named Ernst Hagen dug up the blade near his cabin.
