Deadline set for Trump to decide participation in impeachment hearings

A U.S. congressional panel gave President Donald Trump one week to say whether his legal counsel intends to introduce evidence and call witnesses in upcoming impeachment proceedings that could lead to formal charges of misconduct within a few weeks.

The impeachment probe is looking into whether Trump abused his power to pressure Ukraine to launch investigations into his political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter… AND a discredited conspiracy theory promoted by Trump that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election..
