Guests: Craig Green, Amanda Terkel

Impeachment hearings for President Trump’s dealing with Ukraine began on Wednesday on Capitol Hill with testimony from Ambassador William Taylor, the top diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, a State Department official.  This hour we’ll talk about what they said, the questioning and arguments that were made by the Republicans and Democrats, and the partisan politics that was on display. We’ll also look ahead to Friday’s testimony with former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitc. Our guests will be CRAIG GREEEN, professor of law at Temple University, and AMANDA TERKEL, Washington bureau chief for the Huffington Post.
