There are other Committees (I think 6) who have been having hearings related to the Impeachment Inquiry (e.g., Ways and Means was just in the news on Monday in a case related to obtaining Drumpf's NY state tax returns via the recently enacted NY state law that would authorize release of that to Congress - https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142397359).

In total - (the one currently active with "public" hearings) - House Intelligence, then House Foreign Affairs, House Ways and Means, House Financial Services, House Oversight, and the "main/final" one - House Judiciary.

The issue here however, was to compile all of this to find the incidents most likely to result in a solid impeachment charge or charges in as quick a manner as possible due to needing the courts to get some of the witnesses and underlying evidence compelled and compiled... and due to the upcoming election (where getting everything together to make an effective case might have gone beyond the 2020 election).

And as a note - all of the obstruction has been called out by Schiff and the House Intelligence Committee as being potential "additional" charges. The issue of perjury has only recently come to light once the testimony was released to the public and witnesses have testified the past couple weeks.
