13,8 million Americans watch the broadcast of the hearing on the impeachment of trump
The first public hearing as part of an investigation into the possible impeachment of US President Donald Trump took place on Wednesday, November 13. 10 TV channels broadcast the meeting; 13,8 million Americans watched this broadcast. Writes about it "Voice of America".
Although the audience of the hearings, which lasted almost six hours, exceeded the average, the event in the House of Representatives did not attract as much attention as other sensational public hearings held in Congress in recent years.
Thus, in the 2018 year, about 20 million people watched the testimony in Congress of Brett Cavanaugh, nominated by Donald Trump to the post of judge of the Supreme Court, in XNUMX. The hearing caught the attention of Americans over sexual harassment charges brought against Cavanaugh by Stanford University professor Christine Blazy Ford. Cavanaugh denied all allegations, and was eventually approved for the post.
In June 2017, about 19,5 million Americans turned on their televisions to watch Senate Intelligence Committee hearings at which James Coney, a former director of the Federal Intelligence Service, testified.
The testimony of Robert Muller, a former special prosecutor who investigated the Russian interference in the 2016 election, was watched by approximately 2019 million viewers in July of the 13.
These figures do not reflect the number of people who followed the hearing using smartphones or computers, or watched the broadcasts of the meeting on social networks.
Trump saidthat he has not yet watched the broadcast of open hearings in the House of Representatives on the issue of impeachment of him, writes Interfax.
“I haven't looked a single minute,” he said at a press conference at the White House.
“This is all a scam and should be prohibited,” Trump added.
Recall in Friday, November 15, the former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Jovanovic will give public testimony, and next week, on November 19, 20 and 21, witnesses should speak: Jennifer Williams, assistant vice president of Mike Pence; Lt. Col.
