Just two months after efforts to impeach President Donald Trump seemed to be at an end, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives this week began a formal investigation with the goal to impeach and remove him from office. What’s changed? What are the chances an impeachment by the House will lead to a first-ever removal of the President by the Senate? Will the whistle blower charges that the President pressured Ukrainian President Zelensky to investigate allegations against 2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and his son be the grounds for removing Mr. Trump from office? And what impact will all this have on American politics, in particular next year’s 2020 Presidential race where President Trump is seeking re-election? This week on INSIDE POLITICS, we’ve brought in two of our best political analysts to tell us where things stand and where we may be headed in this still developing story. They are Democrat Larry Woods, a Nashville attorney and Republican strategist and lobbyist Bill Phillips.
