“This week, the House of Representatives will be voting on a resolution directing certain committees, including the House Intelligence Committee, of which I am a member, to continue their ongoing investigations as part of the existing impeachment inquiry. The resolution lays the framework for the investigation going forward, describes the rules and structure of public hearings to share the information with the American people, and provides mechanisms for the minority party to be involved.
