Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “‘I now recall:’ What to watch in Trump impeachment hearings”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Certainly it’s full of international mystery, which House impeachment investigators are sorting through as they probe President Donald Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.
