Driving the news: "Our Committee's goal will be to explain to the American people the serious counterintelligence concerns raised by the Mueller Report, examine the depth and breadth of the unethical and unpatriotic conduct it describes, and produce prescriptive remedies to ensure that this never happens again," Chairman of U.S. House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff wrote in a statement.
- The House Judiciary Committee will initiate similar proceedings next week, titled "President Trump’s most overt acts of obstruction."
Context: Amid growing calls to launch impeachment proceedings against Trump, House Democrats are opting instead to continue holding hearings under the umbrella of standard congressional oversight.
