"Must we simply 'get over it?'" - Schiff opens impeachment hearings

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff, chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, opens the historic inquiry into whether President Trump abused his power.

"Must we simply 'get over it?'" - Schiff opens impeachment hearings

With a potential television audience of tens of millions looking on, Schiff quoted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, who weeks ago, when discussing Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, said Americans should "get over it." This week’s hearings, where Americans will hear directly for the first time from people involved in events that sparked the congressional inquiry, may pave the way for the Democratic-led House to approve articles of impeachment against Trump.

That would lead to a trial in the Senate on whether to convict Trump of those charges and remove him from office.

Republicans control the Senate and have shown little support for Trump’s removal.
