With Democrats beginning the impeachment hearing Wednesday, many leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are well aware of the pressures Trump is facing at home.

Impeachment hearings "eat up a considerable amount of time" for the president and his closest advisers, said Gary Schmitt, resident scholar in strategic studies and American institutions at the American Enterprise Institute. "You'll see a very distracted president for sure," Schmitt said.

However, Trump's impeachment will not likely impact discussions among NATO member countries whose leaders "probably anticipate that the president will be impeached but won't be removed from office," said Schmitt.
