"Let us in! Let us in!" That's what some two-dozen Republican lawmakers chanted while disrupting the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump's Ukraine diplomacy yesterday. They stormed a closed House hearing, delaying a Defense Department official's deposition by more than five hours. The moved reflected anger among Trump supporters over what many believe is a politically motivated inquiry. “This is a Soviet-style process,” said GOP Rep. Steve Scalise.
Are Republicans united in defending Trump? Not exactly: Top members, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are equivocating after administration witnesses have said the president used foreign policy for political gain.
