The House impeachment investigation has moved past the first stage of witness testimony as the focus shifts from the Intelligence Committee’s evidence gathering to the Judiciary Committee and the crafting of articles of impeachment.
The Intelligence Committee released a report detailing Trump’s dealings with Ukraine on Tuesday that said Trump had “compromised national security to advance his personal political interests” in his dealings with Ukraine.
The Judiciary Committee held a hearing the next day to consider the historical and constitutional standards for impeachment and will hear evidence about Trump’s conduct from House Intelligence lawyers on Monday.
The hearings come after closed-door depositions with 17 government witnesses, and televised public hearings with many of those officials, relating to the president’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
There’s no clear indication of how long the process will take, but many Democrats have said they would like a vote by the full House before the end of the year.
Here is a list of scheduled events, followed by what has happened since the inquiry began. See something we missed? Let us know.
