The House Democratic march on impeachment continues.
On Tuesday, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) announced a public hearing “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment,” for Dec. 4.
Nadler sent a letter to the White House informing the President of the date and requesting a response as to whether the President or his legal counsel would participate.
“The Committee looks forward to your participation in the impeachment inquiry as the Committee fulfills its constitutional duties. While we invite you to this hearing, we remind you that if you continue to refuse to make witnesses and documents available to the committees of jurisdiction, under H. Res. 660, “the chair shall have the discretion to impose appropriate remedies,” the letter states.
The previous hearings (that the majority of American adults managed to avoid watching) are now set to be followed by hearings that cover the historical context for previous impeachment efforts and include testimony from legal experts.
We'll have to see if the wall-to-wall coverage by the media and the efforts of the public to tune out the impeachment coverage continue.
