White House says Trump\'s team will consider participating in impeachment hearing

WASHINGTON White House officials said Wednesday they will consider an offer from the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to participate in an impeachment hearing next week, even as they denounced the entire process as a "sham."

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said attorneys are reviewing the offer from Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., but added that "what is obvious to every American is that this letter comes at the end of an illegitimate sham partisan process. The President has done nothing wrong and the Democrats know it."

Nadler, in a statement announcing that the Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on Dec. 4, said Trump's lawyers would be allowed to attend and question witnesses.

The hearing topic: How the Constitution applies to allegations of misconduct, including the definition of "high crimes and misdemeanors" that are the standard for impeachment of federal officials.

"Our first task is to explore the framework put in place to respond to serious allegations of impeachable misconduct like those against President Trump," Nadler said in a statement.

Other evidence:While focus is on Ukraine, here's the evidence committees have compiled to bolster Trump impeachment case

He gave the White House until Sunday evening to respond to his offer.
