Rep. Doug Collins, before heading into Wednesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing, predicated the proceedings would present the "same old sad problem" but there will be no facts that will point toward a basis for impeaching President Donald Trump. 

'They can do anything they want to," the Georgia Republican, who is his party's ranking member on the committee, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "(They will) have law professors bore us to death today. At the end of the day, their problem is they don't have the facts to impeach this president. They're trying to sham it through as best they can to convince the American people they actually have something."

Collins also argued that the House Intelligence Committee's findings, released on Tuesday, revealed information from witnesses who had contradicted their own testimony, or were contradicted on cross-examination. 

"They can't make their argument, so now they have to poll test words like bribery and everything else to make it fit," said Collins. 

Meanwhile, House Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump since November 2016, when he was elected, the lawmaker said, and he believes a vote to make that happen is a done deal. 

"(Intelligence Committee Chairman) Adam Schiff was so amazingly untruthful yesterday when he said we sent the report (but are) not sure on impeachment yet. Really? You aren't sure? Maybe they're trying to set the Judiciary up for the fall guy. "
