The House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines Tuesday to approve its 300-page report on President Trump's conduct with Ukraine, concluding that "the evidence of the president's misconduct is overwhelming, and so too is the evidence of his obstruction of Congress."

Wednesday's four witnesses are all law professors: Harvard's Noah Feldman, Stanford's Pamela Karlan, and Michael Gerhardt of the University of North Carolina for the Democrats; George Washington University's Jonathan Turley for the Republicans.
