Trump campaign will no longer credential Bloomberg News reporters at events

What are the Constitutional grounds for impeachment

President Donald Trump slammed House Judiciary Committee on Monday for holding its first impeachment hearing while he is scheduled to depart the usa for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders meeting in Europe.

Nadler had last week invited Trump and his attorneys to take part in the first hearing on Wednesday, an invitation which Cipollone declined.

Legal scholars will provide testimony to the panel on that day as Democrats are considering whether the evidence turned up in their weeks-long impeachment inquiry warrants the drafting of articles of impeachment against Trump.

The inquiry was set off by reports that an anonymous intelligence staffer filed a complaint that Trump allegedly misused his power by withholding aid to Ukraine in favor of politically advantageous investigations, which Trump and officials in Kyiv have denied.

The next steps would be a vote by the full House and, finally, a Senate trial.

Rep. Jim Jordan, ranking member and Ranking member of the House Oversight Committee and Rep. Michael McCaul, ranking member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs issued the report.

Democratic staffers on the Intelligence Committee worked through the Thanksgiving recess to complete their report, while lawmakers spent the week at home in their districts.

If the findings are popular, the file can be despatched to the House Judiciary Committee, the achieve Get.

An unspecified number of people were also missing, including some who were at the mayor's office, the governor said. US Attorney General William Barr is due to visit Mexico next week to discuss cooperation over security.

Even after the report is submitted, the intelligence panel's investigative work could continue. The committee will reportedly vote on whether to adopt the report on Tuesday.

Bloomberg News editor John Micklethwait responded that his outlet is not biased against Trump. A fact witness testifies their personal knowledge of events while an expert witness assists the judge by offering an opinion. But they could still hear testimony if one of them changed their mind, or if other key witnesses emerged. Schiff, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, spearheaded the launch of the impeachment inquiry against Trump.

Cipollone's letter applied only to the Wednesday hearing, and he demanded more information from Democrats on how they meant to conduct further hearings before Trump would decide whether to participate in them.

Cipollone in Sunday's letter left open the possibility of having a representative for Trump attend future hearings.

Basically, Trump is now saying that he won't participate because he doesn't believe he'll be treated fairly, and rather than give the House Democrats the opportunity to prove him wrong (or right), he's doing the presidential equivalent of taking his ball and going home-except these committees are going to keep moving ahead, with or without his cooperation. Trump had complained that his lawyers were unable to cross-examine witnesses before the intelligence panel.

The committee plans to announce those witnesses on Monday, an aide said.

When questioned whether he was aware Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden in exchange for a White House meeting or US military aid, Reeker replied, "I do not recall that specifically, no", according to transcripts (pdf) released last week by the House Intelligence Committee. On the screen behind him, Honig brought up what he called a "famous phrase" from the Constitution, from Article II, Section 4 of the document, which states that "Treason, Bribery or Other High Crimes and Misdemeanors" are required to impeach a public official.

The furor over the Mueller report died down for a few months.
