Democrats push impeachment to next phase with Dec. 4 hearing

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Judiciary Committee is set to take over the impeachment probe of President Donald Trump, Democrats announced Tuesday, scheduling a hearing for next week as they push closer to a possible vote on actual charges of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The Judiciary panel scheduled the hearing as the separate Intelligence Committee released two last transcripts from its depositions, including from a White House budget official who detailed concerns among colleagues as Trump ordered them, through intermediaries, to put a hold on military aid to Ukraine.

Trump ordered the hold as he was pressuring Ukraine’s president to investigate Democrats — the issue at the heart of the impeachment probe. Multiple government witnesses testified in impeachment hearings held by the Intelligence panel this month that Trump directed his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to take the lead on Ukraine policy and that Giuliani pushed an “irregular” diplomatic channel.

The Intelligence Committee is wrapping up the investigative phase of the probe and preparing its report for the next. Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has said the report could be released soon after the House returns from its Thanksgiving break.

The initial Judiciary hearing on Dec. 4, the day after lawmakers return, will feature legal experts who will examine questions of constitutional grounds as the panel decides whether to write articles of impeachment against Trump — and if so what those articles will be. Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that his panel’s hearing will “explore the framework put in place to respond to serious allegations of impeachable misconduct.”

Democrats are aiming for a final House vote by Christmas, which would set the stage for a likely Senate trial in January.

Presidential candidates do not have any plans and their campaigns are total failure. They all speak about how to deal with Saudi Arabia and put it in its place lol. Same shit Trump says but then ended up visiting Saudi Arabia as first foreign trip. When the get into the white house they get access to the facts and then instead of the big talk during the campaign they come to realize how important Saudi Arabia is.

I never heard Trump say he was going to put Saudi Arabia in their place. Can you elaborate more on what he said regarding SA? He's a businessman, I can't imagine why he would say anything about imposing his will against SA. Unless it was about paying for military support.

It was pre-election. my point is that US presidential candidates will alwayes bring Saudi Arabia to the discussion and no ever talked about US-Saudi Arabia solid relations.
