WASHINGTON (AP) – Democratic lawmakers hit hard at President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine and their investigation as the House Judiciary Committee opened its impeachment hearing on Capitol Hill.
Republicans said it was all a sham, arguing the Democrats had no evidence of an impeachable offense.
The GOP lawmakers also tried various delaying tactics, to no avail, as the Democrats pushed ahead.
Three legal experts called by the Democrats said Trump indeed merited removal from office. A lone professor summoned by the GOP disagreed.
Trump, who was in England for a NATO conference, pronounced it all boring and said he wouldn’t be watching.
