Just in time for Christmas.

The House Judiciary Committee will hold its first impeachment hearing next Wednesday, Dec. 4, Chairman Jerry Nadler announced Tuesday, following two weeks of high-profile impeachment inquiry hearings by the House Intelligence Committee.
The Judiciary Committee hearing will include legal experts as witnesses and is titled, “The Impeachment Inquiry into President Donald J. Trump: Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment,” as Democrats decide whether to draft articles of impeachment.
Nadler sent a letter to President Trump, reminding him that he and his lawyers have a right to attend the hearing.
“As Chairman Schiff indicated yesterday, the impeachment inquiry is entering into a new phase,” Nadler said in a statement, referring to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. “Our first task is to explore the framework put in place to respond to serious allegations of impeachable misconduct like those against President Trump.”
“I have also written to President Trump to remind him that the Committee’s impeachment inquiry rules allow for the President to attend the hearing and for his counsel to question the witness panel. At base, the President has a choice to make: he can take this opportunity to be represented in the impeachment hearings, or he can stop complaining about the process. I hope that he chooses to participate in the inquiry, directly or through counsel, as other Presidents have done before him,” Nadler said.
We were just wondering if these impeachment hearings were over of if they were going to be delayed, and now we have our answer.
If they stay on this fast track they could have a vote to impeach before Christmas, or right after.
I have to say that really the only thing I want for Chirstmas this year is for Donald Trump to be impeached and removed from office.
I’ve been good, I deserve it.
