The House is turning its focus toward the next phase of its high-profile impeachment fight, after formalizing procedures for the inquiry.
The House voted 232-196 last week, largely along party lines, on a resolution that establishes rules for open hearings and the questioning of witnesses by members and staff.
The public hearings are expected to happen as soon as this month. With the House out of town this week, and the week of Nov. 18, that gives them a narrow two week-window to hold hearings, absent a change to the schedule.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told Bloomberg that she didn’t know a timeframe for the overall investigation, but she expected public hearings this month.
