Trump faces two deadlines as U.S. Congress ramps up impeachment focus

"At base, the president has a choice to make: he can take this opportunity to be represented in the impeachment hearings, or he can stop complaining about the process", Nadler wrote in a letter to Trump.

Democratic aides said a vote on possible articles of impeachment would follow quickly on the heels of an evidentiary hearing. Add Impeachment Inquiry as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Impeachment Inquiry news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Monday on "Fox & Friends", U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared his reaction to the White House saying it would not participate in the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment hearing as President Donald Trump and the national security team travel to London for the annual North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit. The president will be in London on Wednesday for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

"So basically all that Nadler is asking is are you going to play along with our completely biased and manipulated rules and specific privileges we give you that you have to play along with that, and we're going to lie, cheat, and steal along the way, or are you going to decline to participate entirely and then we can say, oh hey that's your fault President Trump for not participating".

As for letting Trump defend himself, we're approaching the part of the impeachment process where that could actually happen.

Members of the intelligence panel will review the report in a classified setting on Monday evening and the full committee will consider and vote on it on Tuesday before forwarding it to the judiciary committee, according to an intelligence committee official and a person familiar with the matter. "While those attacks - at least 22, according to a Washington Post tally - have done little to undermine the core allegations under investigation in the House, they have been remarkably successful in one respect: keeping congressional Republicans united against impeachment as the GOP casts the probe as partisan".

Ray responded that he doesn't believe efforts to push House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff will be successful. House Democrats have argued that Trump's communications with Zelensky amount to a "quid pro quo". "That's not my thing", Zelenskiy told TIME and several European publications. We're at war. If you're our strategic partner, then you can't go blocking anything for us. I think that's just about fairness. "It just goes without saying".

When speaking to reporters outside the White House Monday, Trump accused Democrats of purposely scheduling a hearing for when he will be out of the country attending the NATO Summit in London.

Jenna Ellis, the Trump campaign's senior legal adviser, said during an appearance on Fox News's "America News HQ" over the weekend that Nadler's letter to Trump inviting the president or his counsel to appear at upcoming committee hearings contained "interesting phrasing".

Do they all confirm what we already know, namely that Trump invited foreign interference in our election, used his public position (i.e. a White House meeting, release of aid) to get political help (in the form of a spurious investigation with no basis in fact) against a political rival?

For months, Donald Trump has been criticizing the U.S. House impeachment proceedings as unfair.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler of Manhattan also ripped Trump for not fully cooperating with Congress.

All that is known so far is that there will be four witnesses, they will be constitutional law experts, and that three will be chosen by the Democratic majority and one by the Republican minority.
