Rep. Ben Cline, R-Va., criticized how Democrats have handled the impeachment probe, calling it a “farce.” Cline spoke on the first day of public hearings by the House Judiciary Committee as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The Dec. 4 hearing featured 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 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.
