Guests: Ross Baker, Margaret Taylor, Andrea Bernstein

The House Judiciary Committee debated amendments to two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Thursday. Assuming the committee votes for impeachment, the next step is a full House vote sometime next week, and then, again assuming the House approves the articles of impeachment, the Senate takes up the impeachment question in January. This hour, we discuss the Judiciary Committee hearings, the evidence, and the arguments with ROSS BAKER, professor of political science at Rutgers University and MARGARET TAYLOR, a fellow at the Brookings Institution. Then, we discuss what Rudy Giuiliani has been up to in Ukraine and his involved in the Ukraine pressure campaign with ANDREA BERNSTEIN, co-host of the Trump Inc. Podcast from WNYC and ProPublica.
