The hearing is the first since Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the House would pursue articles of impeachment.

House Judiciary Committee chairman, Jerrold Nadler, told reporters that Trump had endangered the US Constitution, undermined the integrity of the 2020 election and jeopardised national security.

House Republicans remain uniformly opposed to impeachment, arguing that Mr. Trump was merely concerned about corruption in Ukraine and pointing out that the security assistance was eventually released. Only two presidents have successfully been impeached before: Bill Clinton in 1998 and Andrew Johnson in 1868, both of whom kept their positions, neither of whom were deposed.

The Democrat-led committee is expected to vote on the articles later this week.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has publicly accused Trump of attempting to bribe Ukraine and Welch, himself, has repeatedly said the president's stonewalling of the impeachment investigation and his disregard for the rule of law are just as concerning to him as the activity with a foreign power.

Trump proclaimed his innocence on Twitter in advance of the announcement.

They also argued there was no first-hand evidence Mr Trump withheld $US391 million in military aid or a White House meeting to get his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, as well as a debunked theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, interfered in the 2016 United States election. "The allegations also match up with the president's own words as released by the White House - words that he still says were flawless".

The White House in a statement called the formal charges "baseless" and said Trump will address them during the trial phase. Impeachment and conviction not only removes the president from office, but it disqualifies the removed individual from even seeking that office again.

Trump tweeted prolifically during and after the press conference that the charges are "ridiculous", "political madness" and a "WITCH HUNT", emphasizing that he "has done NOTHING wrong".

A full House vote will take place next week, according to the report.

While the latest bout of load-shedding came as a surprise to some people, many experts have been warning about this scenario. The schedule for 9 to 15 December shows the times and the blocks that will be affected.

The top Republican on the panel, representative Doug Collins, derided the hearing as a "sham" and said Democrats are racing to jam impeachment through on a "clock and a calendar" ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

The House Judiciary Committee is meeting Monday to hear presentations from Republican and Democratic staff attorneys with the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.

The White House did not defend the president in the impeachment hearings, refusing to participate in the impeachment process entirely.

The House will now hold a vote on the two articles of impeachment before it is sent to the Senate.

"We voted for Donald Trump, and so they're merely eradicating him as a result of they don't like him", the protester shouted.
