Sparks fly in first public Judiciary impeachment hearing

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler during the committee's first public hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, said on Wednesday that the president 'invited foreign interference' in the 2020 election, but the committee's ranking member Republican Doug Collins called the impeachment inquiry 'sad'.

Sparks fly in first public Judiciary impeachment hearing

An impeachment inquiry launched by the Democratic-led House in September focuses on the Republican president's request that Ukraine announce investigations that could harm Democratic political rival Joe Biden.

After more than two months of investigation, the committee will hold a hearing to examine whether Trump's actions qualify as the "high crimes and misdemeanors" punishable by impeachment under the U.S. Constitution.

If the House approves articles of impeachment - formal charges - then Senate then would hold a trial on whether to remove Trump from office.

The committee held its first hearing a day after the three Democratic-led committees leading the inquiry issued a report accusing Trump of abusing his office in a bid to help secure his re-election in 2020.
