Impeachment Inquiry to Be Televised This Week

When the House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump begins its public phase on Wednesday, people will have more ways to get the information than in 1973 during Nixon's impeachment hearings, Fox News reports. "People now have a far greater variety of options as to how to consume this," said professor Tobe Berkovitz, a former political media consultant who teaches communications at Boston University. "Everyone might watch the same hearing, but then people are going to divide into camps in terms of how they want to engage with the analysis," he said. "You're going to pick who you want to interpret and propagandize."  U.S. charge d’affaires in Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent are set to testify before Congress in a public hearing Wednesday, CNBC reports. The officials will testify together at 10 a.m. ET. Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch is scheduled to testify in public at 9 a.m. ET Friday.
