18. This schedule looks like it's moving about as fast as these things can move.

Parties can ask for expedited hearings but even so, a judge will give them some reasonable time to prepare their arguments. You can't expect this to happen tomorrow. The House hasn't used its inherent contempt power since 1934 and I doubt they'll try this method now - although Adam Schiff has suggested that they could use it to impose fines rather than arrest a witness.
