House Intelligence Committee [C]hairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) used his closing remarks in Thursday’s hearing to lay out the case for impeaching President Trump and plead for Republicans to look beyond their party, arguing that the president’s actions toward Ukraine go “beyond anything Nixon did.”

Schiff argued that Trump’s abuse of power was clear and on a more significant scale than the Watergate break-in that eventually led to the impeachment of former President Richard Nixon.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The difference between then and now is not the difference between Nixon and Trump, it’s the difference between that Congress and this one,” Schiff said during a lengthy and impassioned speech. “And so we are asking… where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?”
Schiff’s comments about Nixon may be watched below. His full closing remarks are included in the second video.
