US journalists some of the’corrupt’: Donald Trump in Florida rally.
The rally in Sunrise, located just north of Miami, saw Trump unleash harsh invective against his political foes, calling out Democrats'”depravity” and asserting that”the failed Washington establishment” is targeting him because he is”exposing a rigged system.” The attack prompted tens of thousands in the audience to turn and boo and yell insults at media outlets covering the event. Democrats in the House seem likely now to impeach Trump on charges he abused his office by simply trying to force Ukraine to start a intentionally embarrassing corruption probe of one of his main 2020 Democratic rivals, Joe Biden.
Even when the Republican-dominated Senate acquits him, as anticipated, that would still make him the third president impeached.
On Tuesday, the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee announced that President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing will be scheduled for December 4, starting a new stage of the question that could result in formal charges against the president within weeks.
House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff presided over two weeks of striking public hearings he said detected a”massive amount of evidence” despite efforts to block the investigation from Trump and his administration. Originally, President Trump described the impeachment probe as”witch hunt”, saying he had been”too busy” to watch it.
Last month, Trump opposed impeachment enquiry, stating that there should be no public hearings throughout the House of Representatives’ impeachment enquiry against him, and directed White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to not appear before the committees investigating Trump’s phone call to Ukraine.
Trump sought to downplay the evolution, insisting on Twitter he doesn’t care if his top former and current partners, including his fired national security adviser John Bolton, testify.
