The House Judiciary Committee took a big step Thursday morning in its ongoing investigation into whether to recommend the filing of articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, passing a resolution that set procedures and rules for future impeachment investigation hearings.

The resolution passed along party lines, 24-17.

“What we are doing with this resolution is simply putting into effect certain procedures to make that investigation more effective,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., told NBC News earlier this week, saying the move was needed because “the inquiry is getting more serious.”

Under the resolution, Nadler would be able to designate hearings run by the full committee and its subcommittees as part of the impeachment investigation. The committee’s lawyers would also be able to question witnesses for an additional hour beyond the five minutes that are allotted to each member of Congress on the panel.

Well I guess we know what the first question asked at tonight’s Democratic debate will be. 

The first hearing where these new procedures will be in effect is Corey Lewandowski’s scheduled for September 17.

    Honest question: What good are said hearings when you cannot trust those subpoenaed to even show up let alone tell the truth?
    Another armed with lawyers, “you don’t have to answer that” waste of time? I really am seriously asking this.

    That being said, I m perfectly fine with watching dotard’s mental decline spiral ever downward at an alarming rate.
    It’s called “karma,”

    Lol. Nothing but grandstanding. Nadler has a progressive challenging his seat. That is what this is about.

    Passing a resolution that apparently is the pre-start to the pre-beginning of a pre-preliminary start to a pre-something or other, and attach the word impeachment in there somewhere to get your panties damp.

      I laugh at it, myself. Really? You believe that, political journalists?
      To rip off Sting, “Pre Pre, set them Pre.” Even Pelosi admitted to itm they aren’t going to do one damned thing,
      Debates tonight, only those who have enough fools to support them monetarily and “likes” on Facebook. 🙂

    Come on, realistically he will never be impeached with a Republican Senate. Why waste time and money dreaming about it? Time, money, and effort is better spent making sure he doesn’t get re-elected and the Republicans lose the Senate.
