House Judiciary Committee Holds Impeachment Hearing Today

HeadlineDec 09, 2019

The House Judiciary Committee is holding a second hearing today as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into how President Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump’s political rival Joe Biden and his son. At today’s committee hearing, Democratic counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, Daniel Goldman, will present evidence for impeachment, while Republican lawyer Stephen Castor will present evidence against impeachment. This is House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “Some of these things are very clear at this point. There is overwhelming evidence, uncontested by the Republicans, that the president put himself above the country, that the president sought foreign assistance in elections, sought to cover it up, completely defied participation in the congressional investigation in order to hide his role, that he sought foreign assistance for the next election.”
