According to a text of the resolution, Chairman Jerrold Nadler will be able to create subcommittees for members to review any evidence they collect, specifically to determine whether or not to recommend full articles to the House.
The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee announced on Monday that it will consider steps this week to formalize its investigation to determine whether to impeach President Donald Trump.
There haven't been any formal votes on launching an inquiry or hearings on articles of impeachment, but many Democrats on the panel insist that the committee's investigations amounted to forward movement on the issue - something many are frustrated hasn't happened sooner.
The resolution allows Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to call hearings specifically for the objective of receiving information about its investigation and allows committee staff to question witnesses for an extra hour at those hearings.
In a statement, Nadler described the procedures as a step that would "help ensure our impeachment hearings are informative to Congress and the public, while providing the President with the ability to respond to evidence presented against him". It would allow committee lawyers to question witnesses for an additional hour - 30 minutes for each side - beyond the five minutes allowed for committee lawmakers. Make no bones about it: We need to defeat Donald Trump.
The committee has also invited two other witnesses mentioned in the report, former White House aides Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter.
That was article 3 of the Nixon impeachment, that the president opposed subpoenas. "We will not allow Trump's continued obstruction to stop us from delivering the truth to the American people".
The Hawaii Rep.'s position puts her at odds with other Democratic presidential candidates who wish to see Trump impeached, namely Sens.
