House Democrats release 300-page report on findings from impeachment inquiry
Washington — House Democrats have released their report with findings from the first phase of the impeachment inquiry, collected from public and private testimony by more than a dozen witnesses before three committees over the past two months.
Democrats crafted the report to justify the inquiry into President Trump, which is focused on the administration withholding aid to Ukraine and Mr. Trump's request to the Ukrainian president to investigate a political rival and unfounded allegations of Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.
The report runs 300 pages and was written by Democratic staffers on the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight Committees. Members of the Intelligence Committee will meet Tuesday at 6 p.m. to vote on adopting the report before sending it to the Judiciary Committee, along with a separate report prepared by Republican members.
In their companion report released Monday, House Republicans defended the president's dealings with Ukraine and accused Democrats of trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election. The 110-page report, written by Republican staffers, argued that the evidence collected does not support the allegations at the center of the impeachment inquiry.
