The House Judiciary Committee will a hold an impeachment hearing on Dec. 4. The committee announced the hearing while sending a letter to President Trump, inviting him and his counsel to attend the hearing and potentially question the witnesses.

The hearing is titled “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment.”

“We expect to discuss the constitutional framework through which the House may analyze the evidence gathered in the present inquiry,” Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said in the letter. “We will also discuss whether your alleged actions warrant the House’s exercising its authority to adopt articles of impeachment.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
