Donald Trump blasts ‘maniacs’ pushing impeachment during Florida rally SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOt0Fydz6ec&list=PLEpCgrnIa3x79OI2TUrTrRKM8991rvMxY&index=4&t=0s : Donald Trump slammed Democrats during a rally in Sunrise, Florida, accusing them of “trying to rip our nation apart” with their impeachment inquiry.
The U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee has invited the US President to its first impeachment hearing, scheduled for Dec. 4, starting a new phase of the inquiry that could lead to formal charges against him within weeks.
Trump is not required to attend but the move allows the president and his legal team access to congressional impeachment procedures.
Trump and other Republicans have denounced as unfair, arguing that the White House has not been able to call or cross-examine witnesses.
The House Intelligence Committee, which has led the impeachment investigation into Trump’s dealings with Ukraine through weeks of closed-door testimony and televised hearings, is expected to release a formal evidence report after the Thanksgiving recess.
The Judiciary panel will use the report to consider formal charges that it could recommend for a full House vote by mid-December. It gave Trump until 6 p.m. (2300 GMT) on Sunday to advise the committee on whether he would attend the hearing, and to indicate by then who would be his counsel.
