What's next for the Trump impeachment inquiry?

Schiff impeachment report offers nothing but predetermined conclusion

In a rant against Democrats, Trump went on to say that he hoped that in "the long-distance future" a Democratic president faced impeachment from a Republican-controlled House "because somebody picked an orange out of a refrigerator, and you don't like it, so let's go and impeach him".

"President Trump has gone.to the courts", Turley said. "He's allowed to do that; we have three branches, not two".

"If you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it is an abuse of power". "That demand constituted an abuse of power".

"A president who cared about the Constitution would say 'Russia, if you're listening, butt out of our elections, '" she said, parodying Trump's invitation to Moscow to dig up Hillary Clinton's deleted emails during the 2016 presidential election.

He also falsely accused Schiff of making up a conversation between himself and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, suggesting the Democrat would "be thrown in a jail" were it not for Congressional privileges.

The Judiciary Committee is responsible for drafting articles of impeachment. "And then third, he has refused to comply with more subpoenas than most people can count". It's apart from the courts.

"I don't think the trial in the Senate is likely to be anything but a circus and a partisan experience", said Card, "and I doubt that President Trump would be removed from office".

"If the House proceeds exclusively on the Ukrainian allegations, this impeachment would stand out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president", Turley wrote. The President engaged in this course of conduct for the benefit of his reelection, to harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and to influence our nation's upcoming presidential election to his advantage. She also worked for the Department of Justice under Barack Obama.

Nadler announced that four law professors - Noah Feldman, Pamela Karlan, Michael Gerhardt and Jonathan Turley - will be testifying at Wednesday's hearings.

Karlan, a Stanford law professor, told House lawmakers on December 4 that she was "insulted" by Republican Rep. Doug Collins' suggestion that she, who is testifying as a law professor, wouldn't care about the facts.

The committee based the report on weeks of private and public testimony from more than a dozen diplomats and other officials.

During those hearings, witnesses provided information about Trump's dealings with Ukraine, including a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

Republicans on the intelligence committee released their own report a day earlier, which defended Trump's decision to withhold the aid to Ukraine - saying it was based on reasonable skepticism due to the country's history of corruption. "The problem for Democrats is they cant change the fact that not a single witness provided testimony that Donald Trump ever related military aid to investigations, not a single witness ever related that Donald Trump talked about a quid pro quo involving Ukrainian military aid, and so again this is long on political motivation and short on real facts that would drive an impeachment".

"When it's fair, and it'll be fair in the Senate, I'd love to have Mike Pompeo, I'd love to have Mick, I'd love to have Rick Perry", Trump told reporters while attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in the United Kingdom.
