Trump may survive impeachment – but voters will deliver ultimate verdict

It has been 21 years since Americans have been able to watch the behaviour of their president pulled apart in televised impeachment hearings.

If they were watching this time, they would have seen Donald Trump’s integrity questioned in the dry, methodical assessment of two seasoned diplomatic professionals.

George Kent and Bill Taylor provided chapter and verse on what they saw in dealings between Trump’s White House and Ukraine – their testimony drawn from extensive and exhaustive note-taking at the time.

They alleged military aid and political support had been held hostage to Trump’s demands for an investigation into his political rival, Joe Biden.

They also saw an “irregular” back channel conducting a US shadow foreign policy.
