"I find, once again, the president inviting another country to interfere in our presidential election repugnant and a fundamental breach of his oath of office. It endangers the security of our elections, and it's a betrayal of the idea that Americans should decide who leads America, not foreign parties seeking to intervene in our affairs," U.S. House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff said.
Trump's efforts to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy launch an investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter were cataloged in a July 25 telephone call released by the White House, and a whistleblower complaint that alleged Trump withheld U.S. aid to pressure Kiev's leader to comply.
Earlier on Thursday (October 3), as Trump left the White House for a visit to Florida, he also said he believed China should launch a probe of the Bidens, alluding to unproven allegations he and his lawyer have made about Hunter Biden's business dealings in China.
He spoke to CNN international correspondent Matthew Chance on Oct. 2.
Matthew chance, cnn international correspondent: "Did you fire your prosecutor general because he was investigating burisma and biden?"
Petro poroshenko, former ukrainian president: "Excuse me, we definitely did not want to be involved in the political process inside the united states. This is point number one."
Matthew chance: "But you are involved?"
Petro poroshenko: "Point number two, all prosecutor generals should be completely independent from the president of ukraine and under the ukrainian constitution the president has no right to fire the prosecutor general."
Matthew chance: "Did vice president biden tell you his son had business interests in that gas company?"
Petro poroshenko: "We never, ever spoke about any commercial company or any persons neither with vice president biden nor with president obama nor with president trump."
Matthew chance: "Did you send your prosecutor general to meet with giuliani?"
Petro poroshenko: "I knew nothing about it. I absolutely confirm: we never with any american officials spoke about any commercial company except we spoke about the support of american investment with general electric, support of the american investment housing companies, support the pennsylvania coal company, support any other big, reliable american investment. We never, ever spoke about commercial activity but we spoke about the form of the prosecutor general office, created condition for the independence of that and now, unfortunately, by the law adopted now by parliament, the independence of the prosecutor's office was completely ruined. And with this situation, we see the results during the negotiation."
Matthew chance: "Did you know your prosecutor general was meeting giuliani?"
Petro poroshenko: "No, I never had any information about that."
Pool reporter: "Have you ever met with rudy giuliani yourself?"
Petro poroshenko: "Yes, I met with him the year 2001 as the mayor of new york and the year 2017, immediately after the election, we talked about political support, we talked about investment and we don't talk about any other things."

They were recorded years ago... By fighter pilots.
Then in 2017 they were made public by the new york times.
And to make this even more out of this world ... They were also released by the ufo research group founded by former blink-182 singer and guitarist tom delonge.
The same guy who wrote their song "Aliens exist."
Well... We can't say that for sure.
More now from cnn's randi kaye.

Look at that thing! It's rotating!
Images of that 'rotating thing' captured by us navy aircraft... Sensors locking in on the target. Commander david fravor saw it firsthand during a training mission, describing it like a "40-foot long tic tac" manevering rapidly and changing direction.
(commander david fravor/u.S. Navy pilot (ret.)
As we both looked out the right side of our airplane we saw a disturbance in the water and a white object oblong pointing north moving
The object was first sighted in 2004..Then similar objects again in 2015. Footage of the sightings -- declassifiied by the military- weren't made public until december 2017 by the new york times and a group that researches ufos
"My gosh! Look on the s.A. They're all going against the wind. The wind is 120 knots to the west
"Look at that thing, dude!"
(commander david fravor/u.S. Navy pilot (ret.) this was extremely abrupt like a ping pong ball bouncing off the wall. // the ability to hover over the water and go from 0 to 12,000 feet and accelerate in less than two seconds was something I have never seen in my life.
(randi kaye/cnn) the navy says it still doesn't know what the objects are, and officials aren't speculating. A navy spokesman simply confirming to cnn the objects seen in the various clips are "Unidentified aerial phenomena" or uaps.
The ufo reports were first investigated by a secret 22 million dollar program- part of the defense department budget - that investigated reports of ufos.
The program has since been shut down, but it was run by a military intelligence official who told cnn they found compelling evidence that we quote "May not be alone."
Cars submerged as floods wreak havoc in southeastern Spain hilaryl 2019-09-13936 views Floods wreaked havoc and caused severe damage across various locations in southeastern Spain on Friday (September 13), after a heavy spell of wind and torrential rain lashed the region, claiming two more victims and taking the total death toll to four.
In the city of Orihuela in the province of Alicante, the overflowing of the River Segura caused difficulties for those leaving or entering the region, according to local police.
One man died in the Andalucian city of Almeria after trying to cross a tunnel by car, mayor Ramon Fernandez Pacheco said, whilst another person died in Granada after being trapped in their vehicle. Two siblings also died on Thursday (September 12) in the region of Castilla La Mancha, when torrential rain dragged their car.
The mayor of Castello de la Ribera, Oscar Noguera, said he was worried about the effect the floods would have on agricultural land and that an estimation would be carried out once the floods had subsided and some time had passed.
Heavy rainfall in the regions of Valencia and Murcia swept away cars and debris and forced the evacuation of hundreds of people, including from flooded highways.
Two airports, local train networks and dozens of roads were closed, and tourists were also left stranded in Alicante airport.
Bahamas minister for agriculture Michael Pintard shows flooding affecting his house in Grand Bahama during passage of Hurricane Dorian.
In the video, he could be heard saying: "That's water hitting my front window which is extremely high. Of course I'm already completely flooded out. That's my kitchen window that water is hitting and that has to be a minimum of about 20ft above the ground. This is water by my back door that came from the canal that height has to be 20-25 ft above sea level. This is what I'm facing at the moment. I have neighbors who are in a far worse position than me and my family. That's my bedroom water hitting there."

Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives Shevrin Jones posted a video sent to him by his family in the Bahamas which shows Hurricane Dorian battering the windows and the door of their two-storey house. He said his family is doing well but suffered a lot of damage. "Praying for my family and others in the Bahamas," he said in another tweet.
An explosion of "high intensity" was recorded at 1017 GMT, the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology (INGV) said.
No casualties or damage were reported, but residents and tourists were scared regardless.
"I had so much fear, I had a panic crisis", Francesca said. "I spent three hours in a church with my children because rocks were falling. It was a tragedy. It was all black...my house is covered with ash."
Firefighters used four Canadair aircrafts to put out fires caused by the unexpected eruption, Italian media reported.
"We saw a big explosion, a big eruption and we heard a very loud roar. A lot of smoke came out immediately and we saw the lava flowing, it was really impressive", French tourist Jean-Francois Avril said.
Tourists often climb to the 924-metre (3,000-foot) summit of the volcano and peer into its crater.
According to the geology.com website, Stromboli is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet and has been erupting almost continuously since 1932.
The Stromboli volcano, located in southern Italy off the Sicilian coast, erupted in July releasing hot trapped magma in a powerful explosion, killing one person and enveloping the popular tourist destination in ash.
Attorney General Bill Barr plays bagpipe hilaryl 2019-06-260 views U.S. Attorney General William Barr, displaying a little-known talent, played "Scotland the Brave" on his bagpipes on Wednesday, joining in with the New York City Police Department's famed Pipes and Drums of the Emerald Society.
The performance by the band, set up by U.S. attorneys in Maryland and Virginia as a surprise for Barr, occurred at a Justice Department conference in Washington.
Barr, named attorney general by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Senate in February, is a competitive bagpiper.
Barr said afterward that when he learned of the pipe band's appearance, despite the attorneys' efforts to keep it under wraps, he decided to do them one better and join in.
“I’m very proficient at, dare I say the word, spying," he said, in a joking reference to comments he made earlier this year at a U.S. Senate hearing when he testified that intelligence agencies spied on Trump's 2016 campaign.

Hong Kong police violently beat and arrest man on the street.
Tens of thousands had gathered peacefully outside the Hong Kong’s legislature in protest of a controversial extradition bill that would allow mainland China to seek extradition of suspects wanted by the Chinese regime.
Local police used pepper spray, tear gas, rubber bullets, and bean bags in an attempt to remove protestors from the streets.
But to reach the higher realm of traditional Chinese martial arts, it will be hard to succeed if one puts his effort simply on physical strength, fancy techniques, and a mindset of beating people down. kung fu master Youfu Li said one must instead cultivate his martial virtue.
As abstract and mysterious as it may sound, martial virtue involves simple principles. In Li’s words, “Martial virtue (“Wu-De”) is to stop the evil and promote the kind. It is actually to be a good person.” Traditional Chinese martial arts is never about aggression, but to defend the vulnerable and the kind.
Li is the chairman jurist of the 2019 NTD International Chinese Martial Arts Competition, a platform aimed at preserving and presenting traditional kung fu since 2008.
During the competition’s recent European Regional Preliminary in Dresden, Germany, Li talked with NTD Television about the martial arts values that the competition is trying to bring back.

“I wasn’t thinking clearly, because I was hit with a rock the night before. I waited for them to shoot him, but they didn’t shoot him. Waiting and waiting and waiting.”
The passengers on both planes were from the Royal Princess cruise ship, which is on a seven-day cruise.
The Coast Guard, which is leading the investigation, told CNN it is still looking for two people.
In an earlier statement to CNN, Princess Cruise Lines said five people were dead and "one guest still unknown."
The crash took place around 1 p.m. (5 p.m. ET) when a small floatplane -- an aircraft with pontoons or floats that allow it to land on water -- operated by Taquan Air was flying a shore excursion. The flight, sold through Princess Cruises, was returning from a tour of Alaska's Misty Fjords and was carrying 10 passengers and a pilot, the news release said.
The second plane involved was carrying four passengers on an independent tour, the release said.
Nine of the passengers on the Taquan Air plane were rescued and received medical attention with one passenger's condition still unknown, the release said. The release did not state the condition of the pilot on that plane.
"We are deeply saddened to report this news and our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives and the families of those impacted by today's accident. Princess Cruises is extending its full support to traveling companions of the guests involved," the company said.
Taquan Air, a regional airline based in Ketchikan, released a statement saying it was "in the midst of an active crisis response, and our focus is on assisting these passengers, the pilot, our staff, their families and loved ones, and first responders."
"Taquan Air has suspended all scheduled flights and is cooperating fully with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other authorities to examine every aspect of this event," the Taquan Air statement read.
The NTSB tweeted Monday night that it was launching a "go team" to investigate the collision.
The Royal Princess cruise ship is scheduled to arrive in Anchorage on Saturday, the news release said. Part of the voyage, the company's website said, included "scenic glacier viewing" with stops at Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway.
Guatemalan migrant Maynor Velasquez Molina allegedly paid an additional 1,000 quetzales, or $130 USD, to have a false birth certificate made for the boy, according to a criminal complaint.
Velasquez was interviewed by a special agent with Homeland Security Investigations, where he admitted the boy was rented in Guatemala. He was indicted on human-smuggling charges by a federal grand jury on March 27.
Anthony Porvaznik, Border Patrol Chief of Yuma, Arizona: "And so those are kids that are being rented for lack of a better word, to an adult to format a fraudulent family unit so that they can be released into the United States. And then that child be recycled back to its country of origin - Usually Guatemala in our case here in Yuma."
The DHS said there had been a 315 percent increase in the number of fraudulent family unit cases between October 2017 and February 2018.
Under a new pilot program from President Donald Trump’s administration, the DHS will next week begin administering DNA tests to migrant families, to prove family status.

Peter Cousens, an Australian actor and the artistic director of the Talent Development Project was impressed after watching Shen Yun.
"It’s wonderful. Quite superb and quite fascinating," said actor Peter Cousens. "It was pretty extraordinary. And the fact that it has influenced a lot of Western ballet and Western movement, and Western contemporary ballet as well. And also I think I like the mythology of the stories."
"I would say this is a magnificent production," said David Flint, an Australian legal academic. "I am very impressed and I would like to very warmly congratulate the artistic director for such a superb achievement."
"I think also the projection is really wonderful," said Cousens. "The way they've been able to fit that into perspective that actually seems very fluid the way it translates to coming from the projection onto the stage. It’s fantastic."
Established in 2006, New York-based Shen Yun revives 5,000 years of Chinese civilization through the performing arts.
In less than ten minute segments, Shen Yun dances recount ancient myths, bygone heroes, or celestial paradises. Whether set in the past or in contemporary China, every dance embodies traditional Chinese values.
“History, culture, as mankind, humankind have progressed, music, dancing … these are things that refine and uplift the human soul. These are things that make us different from the animal kingdom,” David John Clarke, member of the legislative council said. “We’re created by God and I think that that program emphasizes that theme—that everything stems from God.
"I think we have a lot to know and see from that and this gives us a glimpse of what traditional culture is like. I think it is so important that this be preserved and this be shown to other people across the world."
