House Judiciary Committee to vote Thursday on procedures regarding impeachment

Tulsi Gabbard Disagrees With Other Democrats About Impeachment Proceedings

Conflicting signals from the House's most powerful Democrats have left rank-and-file lawmakers exasperated, unable to say confidently whether the House is, in fact, considering one of the weightiest actions any Congress can take: recommending President Donald Trump's impeachment...

The House Judiciary Committee's statement reads that the panel "will consider procedures on Thursday for future hearings related to its investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment", and will vote on the procedures, but Marques called on Nadler to commit more fully to taking decisive action against the president.

Sixteen House Democrats, in interviews, offered wildly conflicting assessments of the status of the House Judiciary Committee's investigation of Trump, which its chairman - Rep.

The procedures the committee will be considering include that evidence can be received by the committee in closed executive sessions to protect confidentiality and that the president's counsel may respond in writing to evidence and testimony presented to the Judiciary Committee. "The adoption of these additional procedures is the next step in that process and will help ensure our impeachment hearings are informative to Congress and the public, while providing the President with the ability to respond to evidence presented against him". Included would be rules for hearing public and behind-doors testimony, should an impeachment inquiry move forward.

Democrats are also probing whether Trump and personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani pressured Ukraine into investigating political rival former Vice President Joe Biden.

Pelosi has said she wants to make sure all means are exhausted before deciding whether to launch an impeachment inquiry, pointing to pending court cases and at least six ongoing congressional investigations under the Judiciary, Oversight and Reform, and Intelligence committees.

China’s trade with U.S. shrinks as tariff war worsens
The drop comes after a surprise 3.3% rebound in July despite the yearlong battle with Washington and weakening global demand. China's trade surplus with the USA shrunk to $31.3 billion in August, down $27 billion from a year prior.

"No one is above the law", professed Nadler in a statement, released Monday. Mr. Nadler has demanded the presence of several former top Trump aides - including former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski - that, according to the special counsel's report, were involved in efforts to thwart the investigations.

But it is not clear whether the White House could seek to stonewall the hearing by directing Porter and Dearborn not to testify. "We will not allow Trump's continued obstruction to stop us from delivering the truth to the American people".

While the resolution focuses mostly on the findings in the Mueller report on the Russian Federation investigation, the committee has also expanded its investigation to include a probe into potential violation of the emoluments clauses.

The ex House Speaker pushed successfully for the then Republican controlled house to impeach Clinton back in 1998.

"The President's resorts are hotels that he owns".

However, the poll showed a divide along partisan lines, with 72 percent of Democrats supporting an impeachment inquiry, while only 8 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of independents supported the Democratic-led effort. Just under 100 Democrats supported an inquiry before the summer recess began. "It's about patriotism, not partisanship".
