Transcript for House Intelligence Committee to release report against President Trump
It is a critical day for impeachment on capitol hill. The house intelligence committee will release its report making its case against the president before sending it to the house judiciary committee before their first hearings tomorrow and Mary Bruce tracking the latest on capitol hill. Good morning, Mary. Reporter: Good morning. Democrats on the house intelligence committee this morning are putting the finishing touches on this report that is likely to be the basis for their impeachment case against the president. The public will get a look at it later today. We are told it's roughly 175 pages and is likely to conclude that the president abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to investigate his rivals to try and get an advantage in the 2020 election. It is also likely to outline evidence of obstruction which Democrats have said is overwhelming. George. Mary, ahead of this we've seen the first Republican prebuttal overnight also and it dividends the president, holds the line with the president even though it's at odds with much of the witness testimony. Reporter: Yeah, Republicans are picking over this same evidence to try to defend the president. They have released their own report which is dismissing much of the witness testimony so far as hearsay and presumption. They argue that the president was acting out of valid concerns in Ukraine and they note that there's no specific evidence that the president was trying to benefit himself in the 2020 election. Democratic chairman Adam Schiff not surprisingly says the Republicans are ignoring much of the evidence. He has said that the Republican report is, quote, intended for an audience of one. That one person being the president. Mary, phase two begins tomorrow in the house judiciary committee. That first hearing could be fiery. Reporter: It could be but expected to be a civics lesson on impeachment. The experts are legal scholars. This could be quite feisty. This hearing and this committee including some of the president's fiercest defenders. They are ready for a fight here tomorrow, in fact, George, both sides are holding mock hearings here later today.
