Transcript for Judiciary Committee prepares to hear new testimony Monday
Well, the battle over impeaching president trump hits a new phase tomorrow with more testimony before the house judiciary committee. ABC's David Wright joins us with the latest from the white house. Good morning, David. Reporter: Good morning, Eva. When the judiciary committee gavels its hearings to order tomorrow, white house lawyers will not be present.
