Politico said Saturday that members will be granted up to a 24-hour review period and are slated to sign off on the report Tuesday. The news outlet noted that following the report’s approval, the House Judiciary Committee will likely begin drafting articles of impeachment. Earlier this week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) suggested in a letter to lawmakers that the report would arrive “soon.”
Saturday’s report comes after Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to President Trump in which he set a December 6th deadline to establish whether the president’s legal team will participate in the panel’s public impeachment proceedings.
Democrats previously set a Sunday deadline for the Trump administration to answer whether it will participate in the committee’s first impeachment hearing, scheduled for Wednesday.
A separate letter was sent Friday to judiciary committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), informing him of the new deadline given to the White House.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched a formal impeachment probe into President Trump in response to a whistleblower complaint written by a partisan CIA officer who mischaracterized the president’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
