Public hearings in the settlement investigation against President Donald Trump started last week, and following testimony from four civil servants on Tuesday, the proceedings are continuing today in the House of Representatives. Another two sets of hearings are scheduled for Wednesday, November 20, starting at 9 AM ET (6 AM PT) and then continuing at 2:30 PM. ET (11:30 p.m. PT).
The first session will focus on Gordon Sondland, ambassador to the European Union. In the testimony of Ambassador Bill Taylor last week, it was said about Sondland that he had spoken with Trump about Ukraine investigating Joe and Hunter Biden.
The afternoon includes a testimony from Laura Cooper, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, and is the official responsible for overseeing US military assistance to Ukraine. David Hale, State Secretary for Political Affairs, also testifies. You can find out more about the upcoming witnesses on CBS News.
Lawmakers are investigating whether Trump should be removed from office because of his behavior in dealing with Ukraine. That includes a phone call in July in which he appears to have asked the President of Ukraine to investigate former US Vice President Joe Biden, currently a democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter's ties with a Ukrainian gas company in exchange for US military assistance
House speaker Nancy Pelosi opened a formal investigation into allegations in September. She has since accused the president of bribery. Trump has called the research a "hoax." Full coverage of the hearings with allegations can be found here.
