Trump Impeachment Hearings Live Stream: How to watch online or on TV
The Donald Trump Impeachment Hearings are underway, with the United States House of Representatives holding public hearings as they deliberate whether to formally impeach the embattled 45th POTUS.
The next session takes place on Friday, November 15 and they will be televised live in the US and the UK, as the court of public opinion draws its own conclusions on whether Trump should be subjected to a full Senate trial, which could see him removed from office.
On Friday, all of the major US news networks will be offering wall-to-wall coverage of the testimony and subsequent grilling by lawmakers of Marie Yovanovitch, the former United States Ambassador to the Ukraine.
Her role in the proceedings is thought to be critical. A highly-respected and tenured diplomat Yovanovitch was relieved of her position by Trump and – allegedly – subjected to a smear campaign, which she called “false claims by people with clearly questionable motives”. One of those people is Trump associate Rudy Guiliani, who is alleged to have been instrumental in facilitating firing of the career public servant.
The testimony, which follows those of George Kent (Deputy Assistant Secretary of State) and Bill Taylor (former Ambassador and top US diplomat in Ukraine), on Wednesday, promises to be compelling viewing.
