The Impeachment Inquiry Into President Trump

Sep 30, 2019

A lot has happened since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi initiated an impeachment inquiry against President Trump last week after learning that Trump asked Ukrainian president Volodymyr Velensky to interfere in the 2020 election.

Public support for the inquiry is rising after an edited transcript of Trump's conversation was released to the public along with a transcipt of the whistleblower complaint at the center of the scandal. The complaint reads like a novel, alleging the use of pass code protected servers, secret meetings, and the involvement of lawyers in the State and Justice Departments.

We try to make sense of all of it with Connecticut senator Chris Murphy, New York Magazine writer-at-large Frank Rich, and your calls.
