House Judiciary Committee finishes first day of impeachment hearings

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Four legal scholars on Capitol Hill Wednesday weighed in on the impeachment case against President Trump.

Three of them, called by Democrats, agreed that the President abused the power of his office.

The witnesses also took aim at key Republican talking points like their argument that withholding aid from Ukraine doesn’t amount to an impeachable offense because it was ultimately released.

Susan Crabtree, White House/Natl. Political Correspondent at RealClearPolitics, was in studio to discuss the first day of the House Judicial Committee’s impeachment inquiry.
