House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told CBS on Sunday that Congress will move "relatively soon" to hold public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry, but did not give an exact timeframe.
"Time is not constraining us," Hoyer said. "The truth and the facts are constraining us. We are going to move as soon as the facts and the truth dictate that we have."
"When Adam Schiff has determined that he is through what he needs to have in terms of testimony and evidence, he will then, pursuant to the resolution, submit it to the Judiciary Committee and the Judiciary Committee will proceed in a manner giving the rights to the president and the Republicans that exceed, frankly, the rights that were available to the minority... in the Clinton impeachment," Hoyer said.
Pressed about a timeline, Hoyer said: "You ask me a question I don’t know the answer to because I don’t know what witnesses are going to come forward, what they’re going to say."
