"We expect to discuss the constitutional framework through which the House may analyze the evidence gathered in the present inquiry". "It's easy to hide behind a report".

The report is expected to be forwarded to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration of articles of impeachment against Trump.

The impeachment question is centered on Trump's petition last summer that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy launch investigations to debunked claims the state interfered from the 2016 USA election which former Vice President Joe Biden, a Trump political competition, closed down an investigation into a Ukrainian energy company in which his son worked.

The House Intelligence Committee is expected to allow members to review the committee's impeachment report Monday ahead of a vote scheduled on Tuesday to approve the report, which details the committee's findings from the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and Ukraine, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

After weeks of deriding the process as a sham, Trump has yet to say whether he or his attorneys will participate in the Judiciary hearings.

In fact, Office of Management and Budget Mark Sandy told lawmakers during Schiff's hearing that the only reason the money was held up for a short period of time was Trump's concern that other "countries were not contributing more to Ukraine".

Collins attacked the speedy timeline that Democratic leaders are pursuing, one that appears aimed at concluding an impeachment vote in the House before Christmas rather, he argued, than providing appropriate due process for the president.

On Saturday night, the president had tweeted out links to opinion pieces from Trump-friendly media outlets defending his actions and criticizing the impeachment process as "wasting time".

Another hearing has been scheduled for December 9.

"Why would they want to participate in just another rerun?" asked Collins, noting that the Judiciary Committee previously heard from constitutional scholars on impeachable offenses during special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

The panel's Democratic Chairman Jerrold Nadler set the same deadline for Republican lawmakers on the committee to notify him about intended witnesses and evidence as well.... "That's why this is a problematic exercise and a made-for-tv event coming on Wednesday".

When asked why it could not have been two witnesses for each side, Jeffries stated, "Well that's something to be discussed", but then shifted to discussing the Trump appointees who previously testified before the House Intelligence Committee. "That's his right." McClintock said on Sunday.

"He didn't use the delicate language of diplomacy in that conversation, that's true".

"We are here at this moment right now because the president chose to pressure foreign government to target an American citizen for political gain and at the same time withhold $391 million in military aid from a very vulnerable Ukraine", Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) told Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

"They want to ... play a political game and tie the process up in the courts as long as they can and run the clock out", she said.
