Committee to meet Tuesday to approve release of Ukraine report

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff ≠(D-Calif.) set a Tuesday meeting to approve the release of a report expected to detail the panelís findings on President Trumpís dealings with Ukraine.

In keeping with committee rules, panel members are expected to be able to review the report starting at 6 p.m. Monday, 24 hours before the scheduled meeting. It comes after closed-door depositions with 17 government witnesses and televised public hearings with several of those officials.

The report is expected to be forwarded to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration of articles of impeachment against Trump. The Judiciary Committee has scheduled a Wednesday hearing to consider the historical and constitutional standards for impeachment.

The expected release of the report, coming nearly two weeks after the last public hearing conducted by the Intelligence Committee, continues a breakneck pace for House Democrats as they investigate the potential impeachment of the president. Although Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have not committed to a firm timeline, Tuesdayís meeting keeps the House on a trajectory to possibly approve articles of impeachment on the House floor before Christmas, setting up a Senate trial on Trumpís removal early in the new year.
