The House intelligence committee is adding a new name to its list of public witniesses in this week's impeachment hearings. State department official David Holmes will now testify Thursday. Here as NPR's Susan Davis.
David Holmes already testified behind close doors last week. He told congress that he overheard a phonecall on July 26th between president Trump and then embassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland. Holmes heard Trump asked Sondland about the status of the investigations the president requested in his phone with the Ukrainian president the day before. Revelation is potentially critical to the impeachment process. Because it puts the president squarely in the action for pressing for investigations of the BIden family. So far Republicans in the White House have largely dismissed other witnesses as only having second hand information. Susan Davis, NPR News the Capitol.
Supreme court justice John Roberts is ordering an indefinitely delay in a house demand for president Trump's finance records.

The top lawyer for the House responding to an emergency filed in Friday asked the supreme court to block enforcement of the subspoena issued by a House committee to Trump's accountants. High court has a separate pending request from Trump to block a subpoena from a New York prosecutor for his tax returns.
House lawmakers are rushing to approve a short-term spending measure to fund the government pass a crucial deadline this week that could come as early as tomorrow. NPR's Claudia Grisales reports the legislation needs to win congressional approval or the government will shut down.
The four-week funding measure would keep the government afloat until December 2020 cencus count and a pay raise for the military. If the House approves the measure will be up to the senate to pass the plan in time. The government is already operating of a short term funding signed into law in September. Lawmakers have failed to reach a deal on permanent spending for the 2020 fiscal year which began October one. Republicans and democrats so remain far apart on border wall funding and other controversial issues. Claudia Grisales NPR News, Washington.
