|TRUMP IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY
COMMITTEE AUTHORIZATION: Directs six committees — led by HPSCI — to “continue ongoing investigations” as part of House Democrats’ so-called “impeachment inquiry.”
SUBPOENAS: Chairs of HPSCI and Judiciary Committee authorized to issue subpoenas. Ranking Members of HPSCI and Judiciary Committee authorized to issue subpoenas only if the Chairman approves.
COMMITTEE PROCEDURES: Judiciary Committee must operate pursuant to procedures imposed by the Chairman of the Rules Committee. The Judiciary Committee may adopt additional procedures as long as they are not inconsistent with the McGovern Procedures.
PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Only allows the President’s counsel to participate in Judiciary Committee proceedings. It provides no ability to participate in the ongoing HPSCI investigation.
Assuming that the McGovern Procedures allow the President’s counsel to participate in Judiciary Committee proceedings, he will only have access to documents transmitted to the Judiciary Committee and not all material obtained in the course of HPSCI’s investigation.
