Trump’s Impeachment Inquiry

President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry came to live after accusations that he illegally
requested help from Ukraine to dig up harmful information on a political rival, thus giving him
an advantage in the elections. The inquiry could mean Trump’s removal as president of the
United States. He has said that he didn’t commit any illegal action, going as far as calling the
impeachment a “witch hunt”, but the debate is still well underway.

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are doing everything in their power to impeach
Trump, and have now published a resolution stating the process for the next phase of the
investigation. The voting occured the 31st of October and the the resolution was passed . Up until that moment, the hearings have been private, and Republicans have criticized Democrats for being secretive. However, Democrats reassure that they are keeping everything out of the public eye to gather enough evidence. House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy, has publicly stated his dissatisfaction towards the Democrats resolution before it was released, calling it a “sham”.


Some important witnesses who the House Democrats requested interviews from in the inquiry include: John Bolton, Trump’s previous national security advisor; John Eisenberg, main lawyer
for the National Security Council; and Michael Ellis, Mr. Eisenberg’s deputy.


Now that the resolution has been passed, the inquiry has become more public, and has presented public hearings. This has given the public an insight into the evidence the investigators have found.

Here are some key moments from the latest developments:
