House Democrats “are investigating the extent to which President Trump jeopardised national security by pressing Ukraine to interfere with our 2020 election and by withholding security assistance provided by Congress to help Ukraine counter Russian aggression, as well as an effort to cover up these matters,” Cummings said in a publicly released memo to House members.

The move comes a day after ckicked against the impeachment inquiry, describing the recent move launched by Democrats as ‘a coup’.
