Republicans are firing back after Tuesday's release of a sweeping impeachment report outlining evidence of what Democrats call President Donald Trump's wrongdoing toward Ukraine. The 300-page report from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee makes the case that Trump misused the power of his office and obstructed Congress.
In response to the report, House Republicans held a news conference at the Capitol. Among the items addressed was the allegation of a meeting between President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and California Representative Devin Nunes, the top Republican on the Intelligence panel. The report released Tuesday includes phone records obtained from AT&T and Verizon that show Giuliani also engaged in frequent contact with the White House and with Lev Parnas, a Giuliani associate who is under indictment on charges of using foreign money to make illegal campaign contributions. Giuliani also was in close contact with a journalist as part of an effort to oust the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
