House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told MSNBC's '"The Rachel Maddow Show" the panel will release the panel's impeachment inquiry report to the public Tuesday. But he added, "That's not the end of our investigation."

What he's saying: "Tomorrow night we'll also have a vote to formally transmit the committee report to Judiciary," he told host Rachel Maddow. He added that "even while Judiciary does its work," his committee would be "continuing to issue subpoenas; we're continuing to learn new information."

This is a threat to the integrity of the upcoming election and we don't feel it should wait, in particular when we already have overwhelming evidence of the president's misconduct."

The other side: Republicans on the House committees investigating the Ukraine allegations concluded in a report reviewed by Axios Monday ahead of its formal release that President Trump had committed "no quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, or abuse of power."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) told NPR Tuesday the impeachment inquiry draft report provides "abundant evidence" that President Trump's acts on Ukraine would qualify him to be impeached.

What's new: Schiff told CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" later Tuesday that evidence suggests Trump was "using" Rudy Giuliani to "coerce Ukraine" in that probe. Schiff said investigators are trying to find the owner of a "-1" number that featured in call records involving Giuliani and his Ukraine work. He said there were "indications in the trial of Roger Stone that when he was communicating with the president."
