The Heat: Trump Impeachment Hearings

The Heat

The seven U.S. House Democrats leading the prosecution of President Donald Trump concluded their opening arguments on Friday. The main allegation revolves around the president withholding military aid to Ukraine, a U.S. ally, posing a threat to the national security of the United States. The administration has refused to turn over documents and blocked government witnesses from testifying.

To discuss all of this:

  • Amy Holmes is a political commentator and columnist for the Swiss weekly “Die Weltwoche”.
  • Leonard Steinhorn is a political analyst and professor of communication and history at American University.
  • Aaron Mate is a contributing writer for The Nation magazine and the host of “Pushback with Aaron Mate'”.
  • Nathan King is CGTN’s White House correspondent.
