Watch House Democrats Hold Debate Before Vote On Formal Impeachment Procedures
House Democrats on Thursday will debate and then hold a vote on a formal roadmap for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, as several key witnesses have provided testimony this week supporting claims that the Trump administration withheld nearly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine unless they investigated allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
One day after a decorated army officer told Congressional investigators he witnessed Trump and a senior diplomat pressure Ukraine, three other State Department officials on Wednesday offered more evidence in testimony that supported the allegations against the US leader.

President Trump has blasted the investigation as a “witch hunt,” and has insisted that there was no “quid pro quo” proposed during his communications with Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky.
