Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, accused the Democrats of ignoring facts that he said are not helpful to “the narrative they are spinning.” Collins’ closing statements came after testimony from Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, Pamela S. Karlan, a Stanford law professor, Michael Gerhardt, a University of North Carolina law professor, and Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor. The Dec. 4 questioning was the first day of public hearings by the House Judiciary Committee as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. 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.
