Public hearings into President Donald Trump's actions with Ukraine promise to generate all the attention in Washington and stoke the partisan flames inside the Capitol ever hotter.
The hearings kick off tomorrow, with more scheduled for Friday. The first round of people to be questioned include career public servants who have already testified behind closed doors, according to NPR News. White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that he no longer plans to sue over the House impeachment proceedings and will instead follow Trump's directions and decline to cooperate. It's the latest reversal in position by Mulvaney, who last week asked to join the lawsuit of another Trump adviser before changing his mind Monday and saying that he intended to bring his own case. Mulvaney had been subpoenaed to appear last week for a closed-door deposition before the House impeachment panel but did not show up. Congressional Republicans continue to denounce the impeachment inquiry into Trump.
