The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee takes up the impeachment of Donald Trump again on Monday morning, with lawmakers expected to hear evidence against the president that could lead to a Senate trial for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Monday’s hearing will include opening arguments “made by Barry H. Berke for the committee Democrats and Stephen R. Castor for the Republicans. Daniel S. Goldman, the Democratic counsel for the House Intelligence Committee, will then present the evidence for impeachment, and Mr. Castor will present the evidence against it. Judiciary Committee members will then ask questions,” reports the New York Times.

"I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing," Trump complained. "I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace."

"Do it, sir," Wallace said.

"Say it," Democratic candidate Joe Biden chimed in.
