The seventh day of public hearings in the inquiry into President Trump begins Monday
The seventh day of public hearings in the House of Representatives’ impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump begins on Monday morning at 6 a.m. PT/9 a.m. ET. Before the Housse Judiciary Committee, Democratic and Republican lawyers will outline and analyze the information gathered by the House Intelligence Committee during previous hearings. Later this week, the committee will consider proposed articles of impeachment against Trump.
In addition to broadcasts from the major television networks, you can tune into the hearing via the above livestream on C-SPAN. The network will offer “full, uninterrupted, and unfiltered coverage of the hearing,” according to an announcement from a C-SPAN spokesperson.
In September, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives would be pursuing a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The decision came in light of a whistleblower complaint that the president sought to use foreign power for his own political gain during a phone call with Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelensky, by asking that Ukraine investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden. The president later confirmed that his administration withheld nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine but denied that it was done for leverage.
After weeks of public testimony, Pelosi announced last Thursday that the House is drafting articles of impeachment against Trump.
In her announcement, Pelosi said, “Our democracy is what is at stake. The president leaves us no choice but to act, because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit.”
“The facts are uncontested: The president abused his power for his own political benefit,” she said. The House Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee have heard testimony for weeks as the probe into Trump has continued.
