Republican group asks ‘what is Trump hiding’ in Times Square billboard

An anti-Trump Republican group launched a billboard in Times Square asking “What is Trump hiding?” as the impeachment process presses forward with a House vote on articles later this week.

The New York City billboard, announced on Monday, from the group Republicans for the Rule of Law follows similar ads featured in about a dozen GOP-controlled congressional districts around the country. 

The ad features an image of Trump with his finger to his mouth, as well as four current and former administration officials who have been tied to the impeachment process with duct tape over their mouths: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former national security adviser John Bolton, acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. 

“What is Trump hiding? America needs the whole truth,” the ads read. 

The ad comes as Trump faces two charges in the articles of impeachment: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. 

House Democrats have railed against the Trump administration for blocking witnesses from testifying as well as failing to provide evidence as part of the inquiry. 

Republicans for the Rule of Law has been pressing GOP members to take the impeachment inquiry seriously. 

Congressional districts targeted by the ads outside of Times Square are represented by Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), John Katko (R-N.Y.), Martha Roby (R-Ala.), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), Greg Walden (R-Ore.), Michael McCaul (R-Texas), Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and Paul Mitchell (R-Mich.).
