Trump news: President suffers double impeachment blow after court orders tax returns release and key witness agrees to testify
Donald Trump has suffered a double blow after the DC Circuit Court of Appeals ruled his accountants, Mazars USA, must turn over eight years of his financial records to the House impeachment inquiry and his ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, confirmed he will now testify before Congress, defying a White House pledge to stonewall the Ukraine investigation.

At a campaign rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last night, the president attacked “America-hating socialist” and local Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and also laid into Joe Biden, his son Hunter and House speaker Nancy Pelosi over the ongoing probe.
The House has meanwhile subpoenaed energy secretary Rick Perry and the two business associates of Rudy Giuliani arrested in Florida on Thursday, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, as the ex-US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, appears on Capitol Hill today to tell her side of the story.
Mr Trump on Friday said that he is not sure if Mr Giuliani is still his attorney — a statement he made on the White House lawn, sparking a flurry of reporters to contact Mr Giuliani to ask if he had a better idea of the circumstances (he said he is still representing him).
Mr Trump’s Minneapolis rally ended up garnering more attention than just for his attacks on those prominent Democrats, too, with clips of him seeming to imitate a love affair between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.
The president is choosing to spend yet another evening away from Washington on Friday, too, and will hold yet another rally in Louisiana to prop up two GOP candidates for governor there.
