Schiff: Impeachment Report Coming After Thanksgiving

As The Washington Post explains, impeachment hearings against President Trump will soon be moving from the House Intelligence Committee to the House Judiciary Committee:

Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said Monday that House investigators will transmit a report on Trump’s conduct in the Ukraine controversy to the Judiciary Committee shortly after Congress returns from Thanksgiving recess next week.

In a letter to colleagues, Schiff underscored that stonewalling by the White House could form the basis for a separate article of impeachment.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has said she will rule by the end of the day on whether former White House counsel Donald McGahn must testify before Congress.

The House Judiciary Committee includes two Colorado Congressional Members: Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Lafayette) and Rep. Ken Buck (R-Greeley). We have no doubt that Rep. Neguse will be in attendance for the next phase of impeachment hearings; whether or not Rep. Buck will bother to show up is a different question, but he’s (probably) not going to skip out on public testimony.

    Update: Washington Post reports that Judge Jackson did indeed order McGahn to comply with subpoenas, writing that the Justice Department’s claim to “unreviewable absolute testimonial immunity …is baseless, and….cannot be sustained.”

    Bye, Rudy. In an interview today with disgraced former Fox host Bill O’Reilly, Trump said, “ I didn’t direct him [to go to Ukraine ], but “He is a warrior.”

    Under the bus you go.
