Congressional panel to weigh Trump impeachment evidence as formal charges loom

LOL Schifty Schiff Explains His 'Guiding Philosophy' He's Using for the Impeachment Inquiry

The head of a USA congressional panel leading the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump on Monday accused the Republican president of putting himself before his country and violating his oath of office. "He has violated his most basic responsibilities to the people".

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Nadler said members will "bring articles of impeachment presumably before the committee at some point later in the week". Ranking member Doug Collins (R-Georgia) complained on Saturday that they only received a tranche of thousands of pages of documents less than 48 hours before the hearing, despite asking for them 25 days previously. "They're desperate to have an impeachment vote on this president".

The committee is expected to receive the "presentations of evidence" from Judiciary Committee Majority Counsel Barry Berke and Intelligence Committee Majority Counsel Daniel Goldman.

House Democrats are investigating in their impeachment inquiry allegations that the president had leveraged his office during a call with Ukraine in July where he asked the Ukrainian president to look into corruption accusations on former Vice President Joe Biden-who is running for president in 2020.

But since the impeachment inquiry has been carrying on, Mr. Trump now leads Mr. Biden by nine points in Wisconsin, five points in MI and four points in Pennsylvania.

A full House vote on this is now expected before Christmas. It also invited White House officials to review sensitive materials in a classified setting.

The protester was quickly led out of the hearing room.

It was not clear whether Trump was watching the proceedings that could cast a dark stain on his presidency.

House Judiciary Republicans asked Nadler to call eight witnesses, according to RealClear Politics.

Trump and his aides have made clear that they now see his impeachment in the House as inevitable and have shifted their focus. A conviction is considered highly unlikely - the Republicans have 53 of 100 Senate seats; Trump's opponents would ultimately require 20 Republican Senators in their corner.

Democrats intend to decide which articles to bring forward after Monday's hearing, which will feature testimony from Democratic and Republican lawyers from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees. He was acquitted in the Senate.

The head of a US congressional panel leading the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump has accused him of putting himself before his country and violating his oath of office.

But they appeared to back away from basing one of the articles of impeachment on former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian election interference in 2016. Some Democrats believe Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow, an allegation that has been denied by Trump and was not established by Mueller's probe.

Republican attorney Stephen Castor, tasked with disputing the evidence, said Democrats were simply attacking Trump for policies they do not agree with.

"President Trump put himself before country".

"We have a very rock-solid case".

The Justice Department, though, could steal the spotlight from the inquiry Monday when it releases its report on the origins of the Mueller investigation into Russian election interference.

US lawmakers began debating the evidence against President Donald Trump, a Republican, on Monday, as Democrats edged towards making formal charges over his efforts to pressure Ukraine and secure political favors.
