The first round of the parliamentary hearings will begin on Wednesday. After weeks of closed door testimony, the House Intelligence Committee will hold two open hearings on the case of the Democrats for charges against President Donald Trump.
The Democrats are investigating whether Trump should be removed from office through a phone call he had with the President of Ukraine asking the Ukrainian leader to investigate former US Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter's ties with a Ukrainian gas company in exchange for American military assistance.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi opened a formal investigation into allegations in September. President Trump has called the investigation a "hoax." Full coverage of the hearings with allegations can be found here.
