The House Judiciary Committee schedules a hearing on December 4.
The House Judiciary Committee invited President Donald Trump and his lawyers to a hearing held by the Committee as part of an investigation into the possible impeachment of the President. The meeting will be held at 10 am on December 4.
The message was published on the website of the Legal Committee.
According to the announcement, the meeting will consider the constitutional grounds for presidential impeachment.
An adviser to the House Democratic leadership declined to answer a question about whether the intelligence Committee would provide the outcome of its impeachment investigation before the Judiciary Committee hearings.
Congressman Jerrold Nadler, who heads the Legal Committee, said in a statement that he sent a letter to Trump to remind Him that the Committee’s rules allow the President to attend hearings, and congressmen have the right to ask questions of his lawyers, who in this case will be witnesses.
“In essence, the President has a choice: he can take this opportunity to be represented at impeachment hearings, or he can stop complaining about the process. I hope he will prefer to participate in the investigation – directly or through his legal counsel, as other presidents have done before him,” Nadler said in a statement.
According to Free News, Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said on Tuesday that the committees leading the impeachment investigation will present their report shortly after lawmakers return to work on December 3 after thanksgiving. Now the Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight Committees are conducting the investigation jointly.
