0:08 – Impeachment Watch Live from Capitol Hill with Mitch Jeserich

Today on Capitol Hill, House Committees will hear testimony from David Hale, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. Transcripts from Michael McKinley’s testimony this week reveal more on what happened inside the State Department, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s role in the alternative policy directive for Ukraine, to politically benefit Trump. Plus, Gordon Sondland, the US Ambassador to the EU, returned to Capitol Hill to correct his testimony, his mind perhaps refreshed by threat of a possible perjury charge.

We discuss with our Capitol Hill correspondent, Mitch Jeserich (@MitchJeserich) is host of Letters and Politics, at 10am on KPFA and affiliated Pacifica stations.
