As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Impeachment Resolution Allows GOP to Call Witnesses – With Democratic Permission

Nice of them. Although apparently, this mirrors what the Republicans did during the Clinton impeachment.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The House Rules Committee will debate a resolution tomorrow to provide a “pathway forward,” for impeachment of President Trump, lawmakers announced Tuesday. 

“The House impeachment inquiry has collected extensive evidence and testimony, and soon the American people will hear from witnesses in an open setting,” four top Democrats said in a statement. “The resolution introduced today in the House Rules Committee will provide that pathway forward. “

The House will outline rules for the House Intelligence Committee to conduct public hearings that will allow both staff and lawmakers to question witnesses. It will also authorize the release of transcripts compiled from closed-door testimony of current and former Trump administration officials now taking place in the Capitol basement.

The resolution will also dictate the “transfer of evidence” to the Judiciary Committee, which will mark up impeachment articles, and give Trump “due process rights” in the Judiciary Committee. 

Democrats have established rules that include provisions similar to a bipartisan agreement established ahead of the Clinton impeachment inquiry. Republicans, who are in the minority, will have the right to call witnesses and even issue subpoenas, but only if the majority Democrats agree first.

  1. “Republicans, who are in the minority, will have the right to call witnesses and even issue subpoenas, but only if the majority Democrats agree first.“
    Well I’m sure the coup plotters, aka, the Dem’s, will certainly agree to any and all Republican requests.

    • The Repubs don’t have a “right” to do anything if the Dems have to approve it first, at least by my understanding of a “right”.
      After listening to the Dems and Repubs all day, it seems the “high crime” committed by MrTrump was his successful election to be POTUS, and the “misdemeanor” is that he is alive and well.
