Rep. Doug Collins said Sunday that Republicans plan to call witnesses when the House Judiciary Committee takes up the impeachment case against President Trump.
Their number-one witness? House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, who is drafting a report that will form the factual basis for the judiciary panel’s look at whether Mr. Trump should be impeached on allegations he sought political favors from Ukraine as a precondition for military aid.
“Adam Schiff is the author of this report, he’s the author of many things,” Mr. Collins, Georgia Republican and top Republican on the judiciary committee, told “Fox News Sunday.”
Mr. Schiff is slated to release his report late Monday and give members 24 hours to look at it before a vote that sends it to House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, who would draft articles of impeachment.
Mr. Collins said the speedy timeline is unfair and doesn’t give Mr. Trump a fair chance to participate in his own defense.
Any good lawyer, Mr. Collins said, wants to know “exactly what you’re facing.”
Democrats are entering the next phase of their inquiry after a series of government witnesses sat before the intelligence committee and outlined their concerns about preconditions on Ukrainian aid.
