President Donald Trump has said he likes "the idea" of testifying in the impeachment inquiry against him.
In a tweet Trump said he would "strongly consider" the move after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested it over the weekend.
The Democrat-led inquiry is establishing whether Trump withheld aid to Ukraine in return for an inquiry into ex-Vice President Joe Biden.
The Republican president has dismissed it as a "witch hunt".
....that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!— Donald J.

On Sunday, Pelosi said the president was welcome to "speak all the truth that he wants if he wants" before investigators.
