President Trump Called For Open Impeachment Hearings. Now He Calls Public Hearings ‘A Hoax’

Despite President Donald Trump’s and his Republican allies’ continued demands to bring the House’s impeachment inquiry out from behind closed doors, the president Friday called next week’s public hearings a “hoax” and said that they should not be held.

“They shouldn’t be having public hearings. This is a hoax,” Trump told reporters on the White House’s South Lawn. “This is just like the Russian witch hunt. This is just a continuation.”
