WASHINGTON — The push by some Democrats to impeach President Donald Trump has been marked by false starts, semantic debates and legal roadblocks. Not surprisingly, perhaps, the first House Judiciary Committee hearing in the hotly contested process featured much of the same Tuesday.

The only witness, Trump’s first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, stonewalled. Democrats insulted him and he insulted them back. Republicans unsuccessfully tried to end the hearing early, calling it a sham. The back-and-forth was cantankerous, colorful and mostly unproductive.

Despite more than five hours of questioning, Democrats uncovered little they didn’t already know from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s final report in April.
