After eight-hour hearing Wednesday with four constitutional scholars, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said President Trump’s conduct with Ukraine rose to an impeachable offense.
Three law professors who testified were summoned by the Democrats, while another was tapped by Republicans. The GOP-picked witness cautioned against moving too quickly with impeachment, although the other three argued that Trump’s behavior is impeachable.
The inquiry has moved into a brand new phase after the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines Tuesday to approve a 300-page report that concluded Trump had compromised national security to advance his personal political interests.”
In the centre associated with the Democrats’ case is the allegation that Trump attempted to leverage a White House meeting and military aid, sought by Ukraine when confronted with Russian military aggression, to pressure President Volodymyr Zelensky to launch investigations of former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter, in addition to an unfounded theory that Kyiv conspired with Democrats to interfere into the 2016 presidential election.
