Live updates: Trump impeachment inquiry

Rep. Doug Collins called out Dwelling Democrats’ counsel Daniel Goldman just after the lawyer referenced $1 million donation by US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland to President Trump during his testimony — which Collins termed a “very snide remark.”

Collins then claimed Goldman and Barry Berke, an legal professional for the Property Democrats questioning witnesses at present day hearing, donate to the Democratic celebration.

“Be incredibly cautious about how you throw close to bucks since you and Mr. Berke are real heavy donors to the Democratic celebration,” Collins claimed.

Goldman shot back, “Are you making an attempt to say that — what are you attempting to say? What is the implication here? I didn’t give anything shut to a million pounds remotely.”

At that stage, Rep. Matt Gaetz, a different Republican on the committee, jumped in, “the implication is we want Schiff in that chair, not you,” in reference to Rep. Adam Schiff who Republicans have lobbied to appear testify ahead of the judiciary committee.

Residence Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler banged his gavel and minimize Gaetz off, stating, “The gentleman has been warned before. He simply cannot just yell out and disrupt the committee.”
