Trump faces two deadlines as U.S. Congress ramps up impeachment focus

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a letter to supporters last week that Trump had committed "bribery" and needed to be held accountable. Whitaker said on "Outnumbered Overtime". A fact witness testifies their personal knowledge of events while an expert witness assists the judge by offering an opinion. "If the President thinks the call was "perfect" and there is nothing to hide then he would turn over the thousands of pages of documents requested by Congress, allow witnesses to testify instead of blocking testimony with baseless privilege claims, and provide any exculpatory information that refutes the overwhelming evidence of his abuse of power".

The impeachment inquiry has heard testimony from current and former officials that military aid was withheld from Ukraine and that a White House meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was conditioned on investigations into the Bidens and a debunked conspiracy theory about interference in the 2016 USA election being carried out.

Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., a member of the Judiciary Committee, said on "This Week" that he thought it "would be to the president's advantage" to have counsel participate in the upcoming hearings.

What will happen on Wednesday? .

The Democratic majority on the House intelligence committee says the report, compiled after weeks of testimony, will speak for itself in laying out what Democratic Chairman Adam Schiff called the evidence of "wrongdoing and misconduct" by the Republican president over his actions toward Ukraine.

The evidence does not support that President Trump withheld U.S. Security assistance to Ukraine for the goal of pressuring Ukraine to investigate Burisma Holdings, Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, or Ukrainian influence in the 2016 election.

"At base, the president has a choice to make: he can take this opportunity to be represented in the impeachment hearings, or he can stop complaining about the process".

The House impeachment inquiry is this week moving into its next phase, as the House Intelligence Committee on Monday planned to transmit its findings to the House Judiciary Committee, which could draw up potential articles of impeachment.

Mr Sandy told the House investigators that two White House budget officials had resigned following the withholding of military aid to Ukraine. In a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, he also declined the invitation for the president's counsel to appear before his panel Wednesday.

"The D.C. Wolves and Fake News Media are reading far too much into people being forced by Courts to testify before Congress", Trump said in a tweet on November 26.

"I hope that he chooses to participate in the inquiry, directly or through counsel, as other presidents have done before him". "It noted that the impeachment inquiry is nothing more than the Democrats 'orchestrated campaign to upend our political system".

Wednesday's hearing, while academic in nature, will set the stage for the Judiciary Committee to begin determining whether Trump should face formal articles of impeachment.

The Republican-controlled Senate, where any impeachment trial would be held, is highly unlikely to vote to oust Trump.

Basically, Trump is now saying that he won't participate because he doesn't believe he'll be treated fairly, and rather than give the House Democrats the opportunity to prove him wrong (or right), he's doing the presidential equivalent of taking his ball and going home-except these committees are going to keep moving ahead, with or without his cooperation.
