Democrats are in a hurry.
House Intelligence Committee Democrats are supposed to have their impeachment report finished by Monday morning. Then a vote by the committee is scheduled to happen on Tuesday.
This gives members only 24 hours to review the report.
“Lawmakers on the panel will get a 24-hour review period, according to internal guidance sent to committee members and obtained by POLITICO,” Politico reported. “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,” the report added.
