Public hearings on Donald Trump impeachment ‘next week’

Senate Impeachment

"Specifically, I request that you sit for a closed-door deposition before the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees".

An aide to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy confirmed a report by CBS News that McCarthy was eyeing making temporary adjustments to the Republican membership of the Democratic-led intelligence panel, which will begin holding public impeachment hearings next week. "The typically venerable Intelligence Committee has now become the partisan Impeachment Committee". He is the top Republican on the oversight committee.

When both sides have exhausted questioning under that format, then other members of the Intelligence Committee will have five minutes each to ask questions, just like in normal hearings.

When the inquiry is finished, Crawford will again join the Intelligence Committee, he said. "When it is finished, Rick will rejoin the committee and resume his work to keep our country safe". Republican Representative Jim Jordan, a fierce Trump defender, tweeted that he wants the whistleblower to "testify under oath and in person".

Schiff also told Nunes that Democrats do not intend to request public testimony from every witness who previously testified behind closed doors in depositions or interviews as part of the Trump impeachment inquiry. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

British backpacker Grace Millane was murdered by her date, court told
Millane's parents, David and Gillian , were also seated at the back of the courtroom yesterday with a clear view of the accused. CCTV cameras showed Ms Millane and the accused were "plainly comfortable, plainly enjoying themselves", Mr McCoubrey said.

Another example: Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Capitol Hill and advised GOP senators at their weekly lunch Tuesday on how they should best defend Trump against the Ukraine scandal, referring them back to the July 25 phone call transcript that the President himself has used repeatedly as a shield from the expanding investigation.

Earlier this week, Schiff announced that the first public hearings would take place on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Schiff, in a tweet on Wednesday, said they will hear from William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, an expert on Ukraine and Russian Federation who serves as a deputy assistant secretary at the State Department, on November 13, Xinhua reported. "On Friday, November 15, 2019, we will hear from Marie Yovanovitch".

Democrats, who have the majority in the House, are planning for the public hearings stage of the inquiry to be conducted only by the intelligence committee, which Jordan does not now belong to.
