Wow, that’s fast.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says his committee is preparing an impeachment report to submit to the House Judiciary Committee “soon after Congress returns from the Thanksgiving recess.”
In a letter to his colleagues, Schiff is laying out evidence that his committee collected through 17 closed-door depositions and five open hearings in Democrats’ investigation of President Donald Trump’s dealings in Ukraine.
Schiff says the evidence “conclusively shows” that Trump conditioned a White House meeting and U.S. military aid on “Ukraine announcing sham, politically-motivated investigations that would help President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign.”
Schiff says the probe will soon move to the House Judiciary Committee, where lawmakers will decide whether to write articles of impeachment.
Schiff also says that while they “may have other deposition and hearings to do,” they could be filed as addendums after the report is passed to Judiciary.
Which means that even after this report is handed in the investigation and hearings may still continue, and that new evidence will just be added to the pile of what now seems like a mountain of evidence proving wrongdoing.
As of right now it does not appear that the Senate Republicans are at all moved by what has been uncovered thus far, but that opinion could change depending on how the American public reacts to the report and new evidence introduced by Congress.
