The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first public impeachment hearings on December 4th; setting the stage for another week of fiery testimony from former and current Trump administration officials.
“The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing next week on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, the next phase in the process that could result in the third-ever presidential impeachment before the end of the year,” reports Politico.
“The hearing, scheduled for next Wednesday, will focus on the definition of an impeachable offense and the formal application of the impeachment process. The panel will invite White House lawyers to attend and participate,” adds the website.

As Congressman Adam Schiff plans to wind-down his Intelligence Committee’s public impeachment hearings within the coming days, the Democrats’ latest effort to remove President Trump will soon shift to Rep. Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary panel.
“Nadler, a scrappy Democratic veteran of New York’s and Washington’s political wars, will be back in the spin cycle and up to his elbows in hot water. He will find himself tested—not only by comparisons with Schiff, whose performance Democrats have praised, but also by his own committee, which is far more fractious and unruly than the California Democrat’s,” reports the Atlantic.
“Nadler assumed chairmanship of the committee when Democrats took control of the House in January, and despite his long alliance with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, their relations have sometimes seemed strained in the months since,” adds the website.
Schiff: Chairman Nadler and the Members and staff of the Judiciary Committee will proceed in the next phase of the impeachment inquiry. I urge all members to find guidance from our oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.
