House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a letter to members of Congress Monday that his committee is currently preparing a report on its investigation into President Trump and Ukraine, which will be transmitted to the House Judiciary Committee shortly after Thanksgiving.

What's new: Schiff wrote that in response to an "unprecedented campaign of obstruction" by the Trump administration, the report will "catalog the instances of non-compliance with lawful subpoenas" for the Judiciary Committee to consider for a potential article of impeachment.

President Trump has until Dec. 6 to decide whether his legal counsel will participate in House impeachment hearings, according to a letter sent by the House Judiciary Committee on Friday outlining next steps.

Why it matters: It remains unclear whether Trump or his legal team will take part in the probe looking into allegations that he abused his power in an attempt to convince Ukraine to launch investigations into the Russia probe and the Bidens. Trump said last week that he would consider testifying in the impeachment probe, but the White House has instructed multiple witnesses not to cooperate.
