The memo also reportedly encourages Republicans to defend Mr Trump by repeating his own claims: "President Zelensky and President Trump have both said there was no pressure on the call".

The Bidens have said that Trump's allegations were unfounded.

Trump had suggested he would release the April transcript Tuesday.

Former independent counsel Ken Starr and former assistant USA attorney Andrew McCarthy will offer additional legal commentary throughout the programming.
