Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Rep. Connolly says Democrats already have 'smoking gun' to impeach Trump”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Democrat who attended most of the closed-door depositions over the past month said that while the beginning of public hearings will be instructive for Americans, President Trump has already given Congress all the evidence it needs to impeach him.

The reconstructed partial transcript of Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “is the smoking gun,” said Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., who has represented the Northern Virginia suburbs for the last decade. 

He also announced that he has jumped into the contest to succeed Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee following the lawmaker’s recent death.

“I miss him terribly. It would be a great honor to succeed him,” Connolly said. “I am running right now. I’m speaking to a number of different parts of our caucus this week, and we’ll see where that takes us.”

Connolly will not be part of the impeachment hearings on Wednesday because he is not on the House Intelligence Committee. But his seat on Oversight allowed him to sit in on close to a dozen closed-door depositions that were conducted by three committees conducting the investigation under the leadership of Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
