Day Ending in “Y” Impeachment Update
You can watch the hearings live here, and discuss/debate with the Ordinary Times Commentareum throughout:
The House Judiciary Committee is hearing presentations from congressional investigators about the impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, as Democrats prepare to draft articles of impeachment.
Monday’s hearing includes testimony from Democratic and Republican attorneys from the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees. The House Intelligence Committee submitted its report last week on its investigation into Mr. Trump’s efforts to get Ukraine to open investigations into the 2016 election and a company linked to the Bidens.
Those events are at the center of the Democratic case against the president, which the attorneys are laying out on Monday. Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi directed the committee chairs to pursue articles of impeachment, with a vote expected before the Christmas holiday.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said on Sunday that the committee will “presumably” introduce articles of impeachment this week.
