    House Democrats release first transcripts from impeachment probe

    House Democrats release first transcripts from impeachment probe | TheHill



    "House Democrats on Monday released the first set of transcripts from their closed-door depositions as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

    The interview transcripts with former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and top State Department official Michael McKinley offer the first look at what witnesses told investigators about Trump’s contacts with Ukraine. The release marks a new phase for the Democrats' impeachment inquiry into whether the president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

    “As we move towards this new public phase of the impeachment inquiry, the American public will begin to see for themselves the evidence that the committees have collected. With each new interview, we learn more about the President’s attempt to manipulate the levers of power to his personal political benefit," the chairs of the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Reform committees wrote in a joint statement.

    “The transcripts of interviews with Ambassadors Yovanovitch and McKinley demonstrate clearly how President Trump approved the removal of a highly respected and effective diplomat based on public falsehoods and smears against Ambassador Yovanovitch’s character and her work in support of long-held U.S. foreign policy anticorruption goals," they added."




    Oh man... This does not look good at all for Trump. The Republicans can't attract the process anymore. They are going to have to answer to stone cold facts

    I've already encountered the first trump supporter bitching and moaning about the deposition: "It's too much reading."

    Seriously. I didn't make that up.

    So, how do we know ALL the facts have been released? Are we supposed to just take Schiff's word for it?

    You see a 'Mycroft shrug' on the horizon?

    See all those numbers on the side? This transcript was created by a certified court reporter.
