  Collins requests extra witnesses at impeachment hearing The White House is unlikely to send legal representation to the first impeachment hearing by the Judiciary Committee . The first day of hearings in the House Judiciary Committee, Mr. Trump is expected to be in London for the final day of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit.

The relatable moment offered impeachment watchers a brief moment of humor during an otherwise tense week in Washington as Democrats prepare for a full House vote on the articles of impeachment drafted under the direction of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
