As promised, President Trump's impeachment inquiry will pick up right where it left off this week.
Members of the House Intelligence Committee will reportedly begin reviewing a report on the panel's probe into Trump's alleged efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rivals Monday.
The committee members will reportedly have a 24-hour window to sift through the report before it goes to a vote Tuesday. The vote is mainly a formality and is expected to be split along party lines, which means it will likely be approved and then passed along to the House Judiciary Committee. The Judiciary Committee will then begin its own proceedings Wednesday.
President Trump's counsel has been invited to attend and participate in the initial hearing, but there is no indication that will happen. Trump, for his part, seemingly made it clear he won't be involved when he tweeted Saturday evening that he'll be in London on Wednesday for NATO business. Read more at NBC News and Politico.
I will be representing our Country in London at NATO, while the Democrats are holding the most ridiculous Impeachment hearings in history. Read the Transcripts, NOTHING was done or said wrong! The Radical Left is undercutting our Country. Hearings scheduled on same dates as NATO!
