a group of people in a room:           Congress' impeachment      inquiry looking into allegations of wrongdoing by President            Donald Trump is hitting its stride.              The inquiry centers around whether Trump's attempts to      get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President       Joe Biden and his son Hunter amount to       an impeachable offense.                                            Three witnesses have given      public testimony so far - Bill      Taylor, acting US ambassador to Ukraine;       George Kent, deputy assistant secretary for Europe and      Eurasian affairs; and       Marie      Yovanovitch,                                              former      US ambassador to Ukraine. Several more are scheduled to give      testimony this week.                                      Visit      Business Insider's homepage for more      stories.                Trump's impeachment inquiry is well underway.      The House of Representatives is investigating whether President    Donald Trump pressured Ukraine's president to investigate former    Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, by threatening to    withhold $400 million in military aid.          Hearings hit television for the public to watch last week,    and witnesses and questioners are under intense scrutiny.      So far, three witnesses have given televised testimony - Bill    Taylor, acting US ambassador to Ukraine; George Kent, deputy    assistant secretary for Europe and Eurasian affairs; and Marie    Yovanovitch, former US ambassador to Ukraine. At least     nine more are scheduled so far in the weeks to come.      Democrats are hoping the publicized hearings will     convince the public that Trump should be impeached.    Republicans are trying their best to distract and make the case    that Trump should stay in office.      Here's a look at the process so far, in photos.

LONDON — U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the Democrats' impeachment report was a joke with no merit and complained that a hearing had been scheduled while he was out of the country.

Trump solicited foreign interference to boost his re-election chances, undermined national security and ordered an "unprecedented" campaign to obstruct Congress, Democrats said on Tuesday in a report that lawmakers will use as the basis of any formal impeachment charges.

"It’s of no merit," Trump said at a NATO summit in Watford, England. He added that the move had united Republicans behind him.

"Do they in fact love our country?" Trump asked.
