Impeachment Hearings Continue to Confirm Trump Misconduct

As the second week of public hearings in the House-led impeachment hearing inquiry continue, numerous witnesses have painted a picture of how President Donald Trump aimed to use US military aid to Ukraine in order to try to extract political dirt on his election rivals.

On Tuesday, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and Vice Presidential aide Jennifer Williams testified before House committees as two of nine people speaking publicly this week. Vindman, in particular, has emerged as a credible witness who is a decorated and active duty member of the US military.

But, like others who are publicly warning against the President’s conduct, he is being smeared as motivated by partisan concerns. On Wednesday, Trump loyalist Gordon Sondland will testify. Sondland is a critical figure and revised his testimony in closed-door depositions.

As the impeachment hearing drama unfolds, Democrats are considering whether to investigate if Trump lied to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his written testimony during that separate investigation.
