House Judiciary Committee sets 1st impeachment hearing
The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first impeachment hearing next Wednesday, Dec. 4, Chairman Jerry Nadler announced Tuesday, following two weeks of high-profile impeachment inquiry hearings by the House Intelligence Committee.
The Judiciary Committee hearing will include legal experts as witnesses and is titled, "The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment,” as Democrats decide whether to draft articles of impeachment.
Nadler sent a letter to President Trump, reminding him that he and his lawyers have a right to attend the hearing.
My bet is we see a letter from WH counsel declining to participate and noting the differences between this process and Nixon and Clinton. Participating wouldn’t help Trump and would undermine his argument that the process is unfair and illegitimate. https://t.co/gdC0gc0xpG— Ross Garber (@rossgarber) November 30, 2019
