WASHINGTON (AP) — As they investigate President Donald Trump, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee will hold their first official hearing in what they are calling an impeachment investigation.
Trump’s outspoken former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is scheduled to appear Tuesday to discuss the special counsel’s report on Russia’s election interference.
Lewandowski is a close friend and supporter of the president and isn’t expected to elaborate much beyond what he told the special counsel’s investigators last year. Two former White House aides who were subpoenaed alongside Lewandowski won’t show up at all, on orders from the White House.
The hearing underscores what has been a central dilemma for House Democrats all year: They have promised to investigate Trump, aggressively, but the White House has blocked their oversight requests at most every turn.
