On Tuesday, Republicans on the House Intelligence, Oversight, and Foreign Affairs committees sent out a list of talking points arguing against the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Public hearings in the impeachment investigation begin this week, starting with acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent on Wednesday.
