Previous story:

WASHINGTON -- Public hearings for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump get underway Wednesday and Friday on Capitol Hill.

The public hearings begin at 7 a.m. PT but you can join us beginning at 6:30 a.m. PT for a special, digital-only livestream that includes a breakdown of what you can expect to hear and see during the proceedings.

Democrats are accusing Trump of trading military aid to the Ukraine for their help in investigating his political rival Joe Biden.

Republicans are denouncing the impeachment inquiry as an effort to undo the results of the 2016 election. President Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.

On Wednesday, the Public will hear first from top diplomat to Ukraine Bill Tayor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent.

So, how will this week’s hearings work?

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and Republican California Rep. Devin Nunes will lead the sessions. They’ll have 45 minutes each to question witnesses with staff lawyers likely playing a big role. All other committee members will get 5 minutes each to do the same.

After this week, lawmakers expect at least one more week of public hearings.

Remember to join us Wednesday and Friday mornings at 6:30 a.m. for all-day analysis of the hearings and a complete wrap-up after the inquiry on fox5sandiego.com and on our FOX 5 app.
