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 PompeoMichael (Mike) Richard PompeoTrump greeted with cheers at 120th Army-Navy game Judge orders State Dept. to search for and provide more Ukraine docs Pompeo launches personal Twitter account amid speculation over Senate run MORE, former national security adviser John BoltonJohn BoltonSchumer asks McConnell for Mulvaney, Bolton to testify in impeachment trial The Hill’s Morning Report — Sponsored by AdvaMed — House panel delays impeachment vote until Friday Senate gears up for battle over witnesses in impeachment trial MORE, acting chief of staff Mick MulvaneyJohn (Mick) Michael MulvaneySchumer asks McConnell for Mulvaney, Bolton to testify in impeachment trial The Hill’s Morning Report — Sponsored by AdvaMed — House panel delays impeachment vote until Friday Senate gears up for battle over witnesses in impeachment trial MORE and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiNadler: Giuliani trip to Ukraine shows ‘crime in progress’ is being committed against American democracy Impeachment nears: What would John McCain have done?

“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.
