Summary of the rules that Congress has set in place for the impeachment inquiry:

A report of the findings, transcripts, and evidence will be shared with the Judiciary Committee, which will analyze the information and present articles of impeachment to the whole House of representatives.

Republican leaders on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees will have subpoena power if their Democrat counterpart agree, otherwise there will be a vote.

Once the process goes to the Judiciary there will be due process rights for Trump and his lawyers.

NY Times: “The measure is designed to pave the way for more compelling and substantive hearings than the typical, often tedious sessions that are the norm in congressional committees, in which each lawmaker has a brief turn to question witnesses, and often uses the time to speechify or try to create a viral moment.”

The House impeachment inquiry has collected extensive evidence and testimony, and soon the American people will hear from witnesses in an open setting. The resolution introduced today in the House Rules Committee will provide that pathway forward.

Here is the resolution being rushed by Democrats to the floor without any Republican input to ratify their impeachment inquiry. They are not capable of running a fair, transparent, and impartial process. https://rules.house.gov/sites/democrats.rules.house.gov/files/BILLS-116-HRes660.pdf

This is a solemn time for our country. With our existing authority under the Constitution and the rules of the House, Congress has been investigating serious allegations involving President Trump and Ukraine.https://twitter.com/rulesdemocrats/status/1188896276362027009

They are making the rules up as they go, keeping our nation in the dark & leaking hand-picked sentences that make Dems look good& the MSM plays right along. Pelosi & Schiff want to make their sham look legitimate. But the people know the truth. The damage has already been done.
