Public hearing for Trump impeachment to begin next week

WASHINGTON, NOV 6 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 11/6/2019 11:26:33 AM IST

The US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee will kick off a series of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump next week, the panel’s Democratic chairman said on Wednesday.

William Taylor, the top US diplomat in Ukraine, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent will testify on November 13, while former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch will appear on November 15.

All three diplomats have raised alarm bells about the release of US security aid to Ukraine being made contingent on Kiev publicly declaring it would carry out politically motivated investigations that Trump, a Republican, had demanded. Televised public hearings featuring US officials testifying in Congress about alleged wrongdoing by Trump could crowd out other issues like the economy and immigration as voters turn their minds to the November 2020 election.

That might damage Trump, but some of his supporters say the impeachment drive could actually boost his re-election chances by showing him at loggerheads with Washington-based political foes.
