Live Trump impeachment hearing updates: House Judiciary gets briefing

WASHINGTON – Another partisan clash in the House impeachment inquiry is expected Monday as the Judiciary Committee receives a briefing about two reports: one report from three other panels that found President Donald Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election, and another about the constitutional basis for impeachment.

A confrontation is anticipated because the Intelligence Committee will walk lawmakers through the 300-page report on Trump’s conduct in Ukraine.

Nadler argued his Republican colleagues offered “no serious scrutiny” of the evidence.
