How to Find the Latest on the White House’s Impeachment Case

Vice News is reporting that President Donald Trump will hold a “major press conference” tomorrow, February 21, as the government’s impeachment trial approaches its final phase.

The Trump administration has reportedly sought to delay the proceedings as much as possible, claiming the proceedings will be “distracting” the president from the fact that the government will ultimately fail to prosecute him.

The press conference will be held at 11:00 a.m.

EST.

The White House press office confirmed to Vice News that Trump will be at the press conference, but did not elaborate.

A number of Trump’s former campaign aides have already appeared in court to face charges relating to the Trump campaign’s Russian interference efforts, including Carter Page, who is accused of having “colluded” with the Kremlin.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort have also been charged with conspiracy and other crimes, as well as former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted on Monday that the president would “continue to fight this effort,” adding that “the public will get to see the case in a court that’s been set up to hear it.”
