The impeachment hearings kick off Wednesday — here’s how Fox News will cover
The public hearings on the impeachment of President Donald Trump start Wednesday, Nov. 13. Fox News will be showing wall-to-wall live coverage featuring its anchors and commentators. There will also be a live stream and online blog.
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s first open impeachment hearing begins Wednesday at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET.
Fox News will present a special edition of “America’s Newsroom” from New York with anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith ahead of the hearing on Wednesday. They will be joined by “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, Dana Perino of “The Daily Briefing,” and political analyst and co-host of “The Five” Juan Williams.
Fox New chief political anchor and anchor of “Special Report” Bret Baier will report from Washington D.C. alongside FOX News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace. They will be assisted by chief White House correspondent John Roberts reporting live from the White House while congressional reporters Chad Pergram and Mike Emanuel weigh in from Capitol Hill.
Former independent counsel Ken Starr and former assistant U.S. attorney Andrew McCarthy will offer additional legal commentary throughout the programming.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced in September that the House of Representatives would begin a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.
The decision came in light of a whistleblower complaint that the president sought to use foreign power from Ukraine for his own political gain. During a phone call with Ukraine’s president, Trump reportedly pressured Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the son of former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden; earlier that week, Trump admitted that he had brought up Biden’s family during the call but told reporters that he did so because “we don’t want our people like Vice President Biden and his son creating to the corruption already in the Ukraine.” The president also confirmed that his administration withheld nearly $400 million in aid to Ukraine but denied that it was done for leverage.
