After a brief hiatus, it appears as though the impeachment circus will be coming to town once again.
According to the latest out of Washington DC, the impeachment “inquiry” will be moving to the House Judiciary committee in just over a week, beginning on Wednesday, December 4th. At the helm will be House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, a longtime Trump critic who threw a subtle jab at the Oval Office with the announcement.
The House Judiciary Committee announced Tuesday that the panel will hold its inaugural impeachment hearing next week and has invited President Donald Trump to testify.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said the December 4 hearing, called the “the constitutional grounds for presidential impeachment,” is expected to feature legal experts weighing on purported evidence of President Trump committing impeachable offenses during his July 25 telephone call with the leader of Ukraine.
The letter itself opened the door for Trump himself to join.

President Trump and the Republican Party have long complained that House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff had tailored his portion of the impeachment process to directly benefit the Democrats’ aspirations for reversing the 2016 election. Nadler, in inviting the President to participate, is certainly acknowledging these former complaints.
