Republicans lawmakers disrupt Democratic-led Trump impeachment inquiry
Republican lawmakers, encouraged by President Donald Trump to get tougher in fighting the impeachment inquiry against him, on Wednesday disrupted the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives probe as a Pentagon official was about to testify.
The Republicans stormed into a hearing room where Pentagon official Laura Cooper was due to testify behind closed doors, lawmakers and aides said.
In a dramatic confrontation during an escalating impeachment probe, Capitol police were called in to clear the room and bring order, a Republican congressional aide said.
