ND Rep. Kelly Armstrong speaks on impeachment hearings

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The second round of impeachment hearings took place in the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday.

Among those speaking was North Dakota representative Kelly Armstrong who finished his statement Wednesday evening.

Sitting in front of Armstrong this evening were 4 witnesses, called to the House Judiciary Committee to testify on the historical grounds of impeachment, and whether or not they apply to Trump.

Armstrong was given five minutes, but only used three, and didn't ask a single question to witnesses. Instead, he voiced his support of the President.

"We've managed to make it to 5 o'clock today until we've talked about the alleged victim of the crime, and that's President Zelensky. At three different times, President Zelensky, at least three different times, has denied being pressured by the President. The call shows laughter, pleasantries, cordiality,” Armstrong said.

This was the first hearing by the Judiciary Committee on the impeachment charges. The White House said they would not be participating in today's nor any future judiciary committee hearing.
