“All of this is picking up speed right now, we’re learning more about where we go tonight. The Democratic House aides we now know will spend Thanksgiving week preparing that report and hearings now are expected to begin in the Judiciary Committee on the first week in December, the plan is to then hold the vote before Christmas,” Burnett reported.

“Chairman Schiff also isn’t ruling out the possibility of even more hearings,” she added.
