[Global Times] with the approaching of the 2020 election, the debate between the two parties in the United States is becoming increasingly fierce: the Democratic controlled house of Representatives on the 29th heard the testimony of U.S. National Security Council expert on Ukraine, wendman, who was the first witness to the Congress to testify and hear the call of the president of the United States and Ukraine. The Democratic Party also released a draft resolution on Tuesday, saying the house will hold a public hearing and report on the impeachment investigation.
According to a number of US media reports on July 29, wendman said in his written testimony that on the day of the July 25 call, President Wu and other US government officials listened to the call in the White House war situation room. Wendman later reported to the National Security Council. In addition, windman also said that U.S. ambassador to the European Union Sunderland told the other side on July 10 when he met with Ukrainian government officials visiting Washington that Ukraine needs to investigate former Vice President Biden of the United States.
Following windmans explosive testimony, Democratic congressmen began to work out the formal procedure of impeachment on the 30th. CNN said the U.S. House Rules Committee released a draft resolution Tuesday detailing how impeachment investigations will be advanced in the next stage.
After the text of the resolution was released, White House press secretary Grisham issued a statement, saying that this did not change the fundamental fact that House Democrats refused to provide due process rights to the government. Republican Senator Graham lampooned the Democrats resolution as a joke.
CNN commented that the impeachment process will further test the bipartisan United States and set the tone for the election. According to AFP, by the time of the 2020 election, American voters will also be completely divided.
