those people destroying lives war crimes victims in the d.l.c. speak out ahead of the sentencing of a rebel leader. the impeachment inquiry into donald trump is stepping up a gear televised hearings starting next week america's top diplomat in ukraine william taylor will be one of the 1st to appear well taylor said in an earlier testimony it was is clear understanding the president had said he'd withhold military aid to ukraine unless kiev investigates his political rival joe biden and his son that testimony matches what others have said i think you will see throughout the course of the testimony not only their testimony but many others the . most important facts are largely not contested we are getting an increasing
appreciation for just what took place during the course of the last year and the degree to which the president and listed the whole departments of government in the illicit aim of trying to get ukraine to dig up dirt on a political opponent as well as further conspiracy theory about the 2016 election that he believed would be beneficial to his re-election campaign heidi jocasta has more from washington. bill taylor is the acting ambassador to ukraine and for impeachment investigators he served as a guide giving the road map with conversations dates and people connecting the dots to make this case to investigators that trump use the power of his office to try to get ukraine to help him with his political campaign for reelection now taylor testified behind closed doors 2 weeks ago but according to the transcript
that was just released he said he had a clear understanding that there was a quid pro quo and he said the idea for this came from trump's private attorney who was empowered by the president to circumvent regular diplomatic channels in order to carry out this foreign policy in ukraine that prioritize trumps political interests above that of national security now moving forward investigators have announced that public hearings will begin taking place next week which is at the key of what democrats who are trying to impeach president trump want to accomplish they want more members of the american public to hear the case for impeaching the president from these witnesses themselves up until this point all of the hearings have happened behind closed doors so the information to americans have has come filter through hundreds of journalists but even up to this point there's
a growing number of americans who according to polls do support impeaching and even removing trump from office that number is hovering right around 50 percent democrats are hoping that if they can get a clear majority of the public to support them to impeach the president then perhaps they can make a convincing argument to their republican colleagues in the senate who ultimately will be deciding the president's guilt or innocence and perhaps remove him from office. well john marshall is an assistant professor at northwestern university and author of watergate's legacy in the press the investigative impulse he says the public inquiry is mark a significant new phase in the investigation what i think we're going to see happen is the inquiry turned from an investigation stage primarily to more of a performance stage now that we have some of the transcripts coming out people are so seeing it with with their eyes the words that the witnesses have been saying and
then what next week when the live hearings start which will be televised and i'm sure streamed all over social media people are going to see for themselves the witnesses and hear for themselves the words and whether the chairman shift and chairman navl or i can run hearings that are persuasive to the public and perform in a way that makes the impeachment inquiry seem like it's a fair and thorough process that could really sway public opinion in contrast if the house republicans are able to perform in a way to try to make the impeachment process seem like it's chaotic and unfair and i'm sure they're going to call it a circus then that is going to probably stop public opinion shifting enough to persuade enough republicans to vote in favor of impeachment. 2 former twitter
