President Trump alleged that Dwelling Speaker "Nervous Nancy" Pelosi, who's leading the impeachment inquiry in opposition to him, has committed "treason" and desires to be eradicated from place of job.

"Nancy Pelosi knew all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan "Whistleblower" & lawyer", he tweeted.

According to a rough transcript of the call released by the White House, Trump asked Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelenskiy to launch an investigation into a political opponent, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and his son.

On Sunday, the president aimed his ire at Pelosi as well, whom he has complained is short-circuiting the impeachment process by starting an inquiry without a full House vote.

Fox News reports the Central Intelligence Agency officer penned a two-page memo on July 26th - one the day after the Trump-Zelensky call - in which he wrote his conversation with the White House official, "only lasted a few minutes, and as a result, I only received highlights".

Mr Trump has attacked Mr Schiff for his characterisation of a call the US President held with Mr Zelensky and he has said, without evidence, that Mr Schiff helped draft a whistle-blower complaint at the heart of the inquiry.

Axios reports that Trump is extremely concerned about how impeachment would stain his legacy: 'In a phone call with House Republicans on Friday, Trump articulated why he really doesn't want this.

It has been reported the original whistleblower only had second or third-hand information about the phone call.

Democrats are considering these measures, officials told The Post, because they're afraid President Donald Trump's congressional allies will leak the whistleblower's identity to the public. Zaid said the individual works in the intelligence community, has first-hand knowledge that supports claims made by the first whistleblower and has spoken to the intelligence community's inspector general.
