Vice President Mike Pence's recent stay at Trump's Doonbeg resort in Ireland is one example, and House Democrats are already looking into us military personnel staying at the president's Turnberry property in Scotland - arguing that the president has enriched himself through his official office. "It's a question of what we are doing, that they are implementing, and that's a logical thing for a committee to establish a procedure", she said.

The resolution is a technical step, and the panel would still have to introduce impeachment articles against Trump and win approval from the House to bring charges against him.

Signaling a widening gap between Democratic leadership and the House Judiciary Committee, the panel will vote this week on whether to install new procedures for its impeachment inquiry and illustrate its intensifying efforts in the probe.

The resolution allows Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to call hearings specifically for the objective of receiving information about its investigation and allows committee staff to question witnesses for an extra hour at those hearings.

"We urge Chairman Nadler to keep pushing forward, and vote articles of impeachment out of committee by October 1st".

They are also expected to provide the committee with a broader ability to subpoena witnesses and documents, in the face of resistance by the White House.

Couple facing charges after accident deposit of $100,000
A couple was charged with theft after going on a shopping spree with money that was accidentally deposited in their account. On Monday, they appeared in court in Lycoming County, and waived their rights to a preliminary hearing.

According to a text of the resolution, Chairman Jerrold Nadler will be able to create subcommittees for members to review any evidence they collect, specifically to determine whether or not to recommend full articles to the House.

The first hearing under the new impeachment rules would be with Corey Lewandowski on September 17, the panel also announced Monday. During the 1970s Watergate scandal and the Lewinsky saga of the 1990s, the House Judiciary Committee took similar steps towards defining the procedures it would use in examining whether to impeach the president.

But it is not clear whether the White House could seek to stonewall the hearing by directing Porter and Dearborn not to testify. "You know, I think it's important for us to think about what is in the best interest of the country and the American people, and continuing to pursue impeachment is something that I think will only further to tear our country apart".

The committees said there have been "multiple efforts" by Trump and administration officials to spend federal money at his properties, including Vice President Mike Pence's stay last week at a Trump resort in Doonbeg, Ireland.

White House attorneys would have the opportunity to respond via writing to information or testimony revealed through the committee's work, in addition to responding privately to information kept from the public eye. "The unprecedented corruption, coverup, and crimes by the President are under investigation by the Committee as we determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment or other Article 1 remedies".

Democrats are also probing whether Trump and personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani pressured Ukraine into investigating political rival former Vice President Joe Biden. The committees said in a joint release that the record request is a "first step in a broad investigation into this matter".
