Schiff Sends Out Memo Outlining Public Impeachment Hearing Process

Republican breaks with Trump insists whistleblower remain anonymous

Schiff notably referred to the whistleblower as "courageous" for taking action against President Trump in his official congressional memo, adding to doubts on his ability to lead a non-partisan investigation into the President.

None of the GOP lawmakers from the three committees handling the impeachment inquiry have questioned the authenticity of the transcripts.

Then Schiff and Nunes will hold up to 90 minutes of extended questioning of the witness, during which only the two committee leaders and the committee counsels for Democrats and Republicans may ask questions.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) sent a note to members of his committee on Tuesday establishing the procedures in this week's public hearings in the House impeachment probe.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Open hearings begin this week with acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent on Wednesday.

On Friday, Amb. Maria Yovanovitch will speak.

After the release of the transcripts, Nunes continued, "They're devastating to the Democrats".

The president has also taken issue with the way Schiff has articulated what happened on the July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Schiff and Pelosi just want to get as quickly as possible to a full House vote on impeachment, because they already have the votes to win. "It's insane. I think you're going to see a lot of theatrics from Adam Schiff". On ABC's "This Week", Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), said that although Trump's behavior might have been inappropriate, "I do not believe it was impeachable".

"I think we've gotten lost in this whole idea of quid pro quo", Paul said, using the Latin phrase meaning "something for something", which describes a service or favor being expected in return for one provided. 'I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney of NY said he couldn't speak for Schiff but that figures like Hunter Biden and the whistleblower would not fall into that category.

Schiff later explained that his summary of the call was 'meant to be at least part in parody'. Unlike past House presidential impeachment proceedings, they give Trump's lawyers no chance to present arguments or evidence of their own.

'Rep. Adam Schiff fraudulently read to Congress, with millions of people watching, a version of my conversation with the President of Ukraine that doesn't exist, ' Trump complained.

In advance of the public hearings, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), who is spearheading the impeachment inquiry, has not yet finalized the witness list.
