"Visited a great family of a young man under major surgery at the wonderful Walter Reed Medical Center", Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump responded this morning, writing: "I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!"

"The president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants if he wants".

Washington Post: "Democrats announce eight witnesses, including Vindman, Sondland and Volker, for next week's public impeachment hearings" - "Eight witnesses are expected to testify next week in the House impeachment inquiry, the panel leading the probe announced Tuesday, as President Trump accused Democrats of relying on "2nd and 3rd hand" testimony on the eve of the first public hearing".

Democrats want Cooper to testify about how she raised concerns to senior officials about the legality of holding the Ukrainian aid package.

His previous two physical exams as president were on the public schedule, took place at the White House, and were not spread out over "phases".

The House intelligence committee, which is conducting the impeachment hearings, has set a breakneck schedule ahead of the Thanksgiving recess.

Perhaps the most anticipated witness is Sondland, since he spoke multiple times to the president about Ukraine policy.

On September 9, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson sent the House Intelligence Committee the whistleblower complaint about Trump's infamous call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Eight witnesses are expected to take the stand this week in the hearings, including the USA ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, who allegedly transmitted Trump's demands to the Ukraine government.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on Trump to step up.

On Tuesday afternoon, investigators will hear from two witnesses called by Republicans on the Intel committee: Kurt Volker, the former USA special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, the former senior NSC director for Europe and Russian Federation policy. Hill was in attendance during a July 10th White House meeting with former National Security Agency Director John Bolton, ambassador Sondland, and top Ukrainian officials who are at the center of debate.

On Thursday, Fiona Hill, the former National Security Council Russia adviser, is scheduled to appear.

Trump tweeted Sunday morning that he does not plan to finish his physical until next year.
