Everyone has been looking forward to the first televised Donald Trump impeachment hearings on his presidency. Today, November 13, 2019, will have a significant impact on the making of history in the Capital of the United States, Washington, D.C.
Currently, a very crucial issue has been being the question of whether President Trump abused his power. Is it by asking political favors from a foreign entity for his political and personal reasons? The Ukraine investigation so far has some implications on how this impeachment is running.
What to expect in the next Trump impeachment hearing?
In the next coming days or months, America will have its scar. This will be like the past impeachments of Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson. It will reflect the different ideologies as that of the civil war. This is going to tear down a county and its momentum to look forward.
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff said “I always have thought that the strongest argument for impeachment was also the strongest argument against it, which is if you don’t impeach a president who commits conduct of this what does that say to the next president about what they can do and to the next Congress? There is no good or simple answer.”
Two key witnesses to the impeachment are Ambassador William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary at the State Department.
Taylor earlier stated that President Trump felt “wronged” by the Ukrainians and felt he “owe” him to open an investigation into Biden and that of the previous 2016 election.
According to him, “This was something he felt they owed him to fix.”
On the other hand, Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, wrote on her Twitter, “This sham hearing is not only boring, but it is also a colossal waste of taxpayer time and money.
Congress show be working on passing USMCA. They will be funding our government and military, working on reduced drug pricing & so much more.
“@realDonaldTrump is working right now – the Dems should follow his lead!”
Trump not watching but working?!
While many eyes keep an eye on the opening of the first impeachment inquiry, President Trump, himself, is not watching it.
According to the White House spokesman Hogan Gidley “He’s not watching – he’s working.” It is, in fact, right because the president is in his oval office where there is no television.
On the other hand, all televisions are turned on in the West Wing, which includes the communication aides’ office who will oversee today’s activities. Later today, he will be meeting the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Meanwhile, outside the hearing room, there are dozens of protesters wearing shirts saying, “arrest Trump.”
Some of them wanted to join the crowd because this is going to be in history. Many could watch this on TV, but they want to witness history with their own eyes. Others began lining up even before 9 AM.
Several police officers are going around the area to make sure that the protesters weren’t disturbing or blocking anyone. Crowds outside include different press people reaching as far as Australia, Japan, and Europe.
