WASHINGTON (AP) — The House impeachment report on President Donald Trump will be unveiled Monday behind closed doors for key lawmakers, as Democrats push ahead despite the White House’s declaration it will not participate in the first hearing by the Judiciary Committee.
The Democratic majority on the House Intelligence Committee says the report, compiled after weeks of testimony, will speak for itself in laying out what Chairman Adam Schiff called the evidence of “wrongdoing and misconduct” by the president over his actions toward Ukraine.
The report is being made available for committee lawmakers to review ahead of a vote Tuesday to send it to the Judiciary Committee.
On Sunday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone denounced what he called the “baseless and highly partisan inquiry” and declined the Judiciary panel’s invitation to appear. (AP)
