WASHINGTON D.C. — Following President Trump’s orders yesterday for Republicans to get tougher on impeachment a group of Republicans barged into a closed-door hearing today.
Most were not members of the committees conducting the inquiry and were therefore un-invited.
Democrats saw the protest as merely a delay to protect the president against mounting evidence of misconduct.
They pressed on questioning Laura Cooper a senior defense department official who oversees Ukraine policy.
Her testimony came a day after a top U.S. diplomat testified that he was told the president withheld military aid to Ukraine.
Unless Ukraine’s president went public with a promise to investigate Democrats.
That’s the quid pro quo the president has been denying.
