WATCH: Legal experts say Trump committed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ | Trump impeachment hearings



Legal experts testifying before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 4 said President Donald Trump has committed “high crimes and misdemeanors,” which are impeachable offenses. Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, Pamela S. Karlan, a Stanford law professor, Michael Gerhardt, a University of North Carolina law professor, testified in response to questions from Democratic counsel Norm Eisen. Karlan warned that if the House does not take action, it is giving Trump the go-ahead to repeat his misconduct that could threaten U.S. elections. “It’s your responsibility that all Americans get to vote in a free and fair election next November,” Karlan told lawmakers. The focus of the Judiciary hearing, which came after the House Intelligence Committee had hearings in late November, is to define the grounds for a presidential impeachment.
