House Judiciary Committee to hold first impeachment hearing Dec. 4

by MIKE LILLIS - The Hill  |  Published on November 27, 2019

The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing next week in the swift-moving impeachment investigation into President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, the panel announced Tuesday.

Behind Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the committee will hear from legal scholars as Democrats weigh whether the evidence turned up in their weeks-long impeachment inquiry warrants the drafting of articles aimed at removing the president from office.

The hearing — entitled “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” — is the first in the third phase of the investigation into whether Trump abused his powers in pressing Ukrainian leaders to find dirt on his political opponents.

Ahead of the hearing, Nadler wrote to Trump requesting his participation — and that of the White House counsel — as part of ensuring “a fair and informative process.”
