House Democrats Zero in on ‘Abuse of Power' in Trump Impeachment Inquiry

Democrats are preparing to move to the next phase of public hearings

House Democrats are zeroing in on a framework for their impeachment case against President Donald Trump that will center on a simple “abuse of power” narrative involving the president's actions regarding Ukraine, according to multiple people familiar with the deliberations.

As Democrats continue closed-door depositions with critical witnesses and prepare to move to the next phase of public hearings, they are wrestling over which elements and evidence to bring in, and which to leave out, NBC News reported.

The goal is to explain to the public the reasoning and relevance of any eventual impeachment charges.
