House Democrats request Ukraine documents from Pence as part of impeachment inquiry

President Donald Trump is acknowledging that Democrats in the House have the votes to begin a formal impeachment inquiry into his conduct.

Moreover, the president has repeatedly called them out for creating supposed false narratives, such as the alleged Russian Federation collusion scandal, which was a hot button topic in the mainstream media for years.

The development comes after House Democrats on Wednesday threatened to subpoena White House officials for records on President Donald Trump's discussions with the leader of Ukraine, which a partisan Central Intelligence Agency officer alleged in a so-called "whistblower" complaint that included pressure from President Trump for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President and 2020 White House contender Joe Biden.

"Their media lapdogs fall in line", the narrator continues, as images of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and CNN personalities Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, and Jim Acosta appear on screen. A source told CNN that Pence "may or may have not read it". "Specifically, in addition to disparaging CNN and its journalists, the ad makes assertions that have been proven demonstrably false by various news outlets, including CNN".

In response, Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh in a statement accused the cable news network of "protecting" Biden in its programming and of becoming a "Democrat public relations firm" instead of [being] a news channel. Our ad is entirely accurate and was reviewed by counsel, and CNN wouldn't even describe to us what they found objectionable.

The elder Biden said then and now that he's "never" talked to his son Hunter about his business dealings overseas. "And they put in place someone who was solid at the time".

As most know, Trump is a vehement critic of the mainstream media, frequently referring to some of the biggest networks and publications as "fake news".

The Democratic presidential contender told hundreds of supporters on Wednesday, Oct. 2, in Nevada that he conducted "a fully transparent policy ... in front of the whole world" when he pushed for the firing of Ukraine's top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. The Hill reporter John Solomon, argues there is evidence to support the former.

A spokeswoman for Mr Pence said the broad nature of the request showed that it was not "serious". "Biden was threatening to withhold USD$ 1 billion in subsidies to Ukraine until I was removed from office".
