All of them are with a view to subpoenas, but President Trump has a limited cooperation with the probe, as he publicly rails against Democrats, as you have done it.

“What I said is explained on the phone with the Ukrainian President ‘perfect’. There is no reason to call witnesses, to analyze my words and meaning. This is just another Democrat hoax, I had to have life from the day I selected (and before!). A shame!” he tweeted on Monday morning.
