Impeachment Hearings Wrap Up
The public impeachment inquiry hearings have wrapped up for now, but not before delivering a few final blows to the GOP’s impeachment defenses.
Fiona Hill, the Former Senior Director for Russia and Europe at the National Security Council, did not mince words in her testimony. She called President Trump’s pressuring of Ukraine a “domestic political errand” and also called out several GOP conspiracy theories, including the idea that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election to harm Trump’s campaign.
Hill also recalled telling Ambassador Gordon Sondland that the whole issue was “going to blow up.” Now, Democrats have an important choice to make, either start drafting articles of impeachment or pursue more testimony and key documents to reinforce their case.
