WATCH: Rep. Andy Biggs’ full questioning of legal experts | Trump impeachment hearings

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., criticized some of the witnesses on the panel for bringing a “reckless bias” to the impeachment proceedings. “You’re supposed to be talking about what the law is, but you came in with a preconceived notion and bias,” he said. The witnesses were Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, Pamela S. Karlan, a Stanford law professor, Michael Gerhardt, a University of North Carolina law professor, and Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor, who testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 4. The questioning came on the first day of public hearings, as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. The focus of the Judiciary hearing, which came after the House Intelligence Committee had hearings in late November, is to define the grounds for a presidential impeachment.
