Shit that was fast.

Members of the House Intelligence Committee will begin reviewing a report Monday on the panel’s investigation of President Donald Trump’s efforts to press Ukraine to investigate his Democratic adversaries, a crucial step in the House’s fast-moving impeachment inquiry.
Lawmakers on the panel will get a 24-hour review period, according to internal guidance sent to committee members and obtained by POLITICO. On Tuesday, the panel is expected to approve the findings — likely on a party-line vote — teeing it up for consideration by the Judiciary Committee, which is in turn expected to draft and consider articles of impeachment in the coming weeks.
Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff had indicated in a letter to colleagues earlier this week that a report would be coming “soon” from his committee but had not provided a specific timeframe.
Schiff had also indicated that his committee was still open to receiving new witnesses or testimony as it began to draft the report, but it’s unclear if any new information has become available since lawmakers departed for a one-week Thanksgiving recess.
I know Trump keeps referring to this as the “Do Nothing Congress,” but considering the speed with which they got this report ready, and the fact that they have passed over 300 bills which are currently collecting dust in the Republican-controlled Senate, I think they are actually the “Do Everything Congress.”
Nancy Pelosi runs a tight ship and from everything that I have seen she, and her people, are well prepared to deal with GOP obstructionism and attacks from the conservative media.
Let the games begin.
