Deadline set for Trump to decide participation in impeachment hearings

A U.S. congressional panel gave President Donald Trump one week to say whether his legal counsel intends to introduce evidence and call witnesses in upcoming impeachment proceedings that could lead to formal charges of misconduct within a few weeks.

Colette Luke has more.

U.S. President Donald Trump has until Friday December 6th to say whether his legal counsel intends to introduce evidence and call witnesses in the upcoming impeachment proceedings… That's according to a deadline set by the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee..

The Committee sent a two-page letter to the president on Friday setting a deadline of 5 pm on December 6th on whether he intends to mount a defense… The panel's Democratic Chairman Jerrold Nadler set the same deadline for Republican lawmakers on the committee to notify him about intended witnesses and evidence as well….

The impeachment probe is looking into whether Trump abused his power to pressure Ukraine to launch investigations into his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter… AND a discredited conspiracy theory promoted by Trump that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election..

House Democrats are hoping to resolve the question of Trump's impeachment by Christmas.

If the Judiciary panel recommends a full House impeachment vote and the Trump is impeached, the Republican-controlled Senate would hold a trial to determine whether he should be convicted and removed from office… The Judiciary panel is expected to hold a series of impeachment proceedings, including a hearing on Wednesday where legal experts are due to testify about the constitutional grounds for impeachment… The committee invited Trump to participate in that hearing and gave him until Sunday evening to say whether he or his legal team would be there...
