Debate begins Monday in the full House over articles of impeachment against President Trump. The House Judiciary Committee passed two articles--abuse of power and obstruction of Congress--on Friday. On ABC's "This Week", Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) called President Trump a threat to American national security and democracy and House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff (D-CA) called the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani's recent actions in Ukraine "a clear and present danger" to American democracy.
Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused House Democrats of using impeachment as some sort of coverup. "They don't want to know what happened during Burisma," Cruz said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, referring to the Ukrainian oil company where former vice president Joe Biden's son sat on the board of directors. A full House vote on impeachment is expected on Wednesday.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sent Majority Leader Mitch McConnell an open letter on Sunday saying Democrats want to call acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and former White House national security advisor John Bolton as witnesses in a Senate impeachment trial. A spokesman for McConnell released a statement in response saying, “Leader McConnell has made it clear he plans to meet with Leader Schumer to discuss the contours of a trial soon. That timeline has not changed.”
