**What/Where to Watch at Monday's Impeachment Hearing** THREAD 1

Last edited Mon Dec 9, 2019, 09:13 AM - Edit history (2)

The basics: Who, what, when and how to watch. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/09/us/politics/trump-impeachment.html

Who: The House Judiciary Committee will hear presentations of the evidence by Democratic and Republican lawyers.

What: The “opening arguments” will be 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.

When and Where: The morning proceedings start at 9 Eastern in the House Ways and Means Committee chambers. They will most likely last until late in the afternoon.

How to Watch***: The New York Times will stream the testimony live, and a team of reporters in Washington will provide real-time context and analysis of the events on Capitol Hill. Follow along at nytimes.com, starting a few minutes before 9.

After hearing from constitutional scholars last week, the House Judiciary Committee turns from theory to reality as it conducts its first hearing on the evidence in the case against Mr. Trump and examines whether his actions rise to the level of impeachable offenses.


*** Ways to stream-watch or listen:


https://www.cbsnews.com/live-updates/impeachment-hearing-today-judiciary-committee-watch-live-stream-today-2019-12-09/

https://www.c-span.org/video/?467123-1/hearing-evidence-impeachment-inquiry

Listen only: https://www.radio.com/impeachment-hearings/listen


On edit: it is possible network tv will cover, but they have not announced it and online tv schedule does not indicate (likewise did not announce in advance plans to cover last week's hearing). Obviously MSNBC and CNN will cover live.

27. They are not limited to one impeachment manager. R's had 13 to argue impeachment of Clinton

in the Senate.

So, surely Golman, Berke and several of their behind the scenes counsel are likely to be included.
