Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reuters.com: “Democrats dubious as Trump dangles impeachment testimony offer”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats responded skeptically on Monday to President Donald Trump’s declaration that he might be willing to testify in his impeachment inquiry and also said they were examining the truthfulness of his testimony in the Russia 2016 election interference probe.

Trump said on Twitter that he would “strongly consider” House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion that he testify in the House impeachment inquiry into whether he pressured Ukraine to investigate domestic political opponent Joe Biden.

House Democrats were skeptical. “President Trump should testify,” Representative Don Beyer said in a tweet. “He should allow top White House aides to testify. ... He should turn over the documents Congress subpoenaed. He should end his illegal coverup. I’m not holding my breath.”

Separately, House general counsel Douglas Letter told a federal appeals court in Washington that lawmakers were examining the truthfulness of the written answers the president provided in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump initially offered to testify in that investigation but ultimately only provided written answers after months of negotiations.
