House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., ought to hold a hearing with GOP witnesses before setting out articles of impeachment, according to Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the ranking Republican on the panel.

“During yesterday’s impeachment hearing, Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., furnished you with a timely demand for a minority day of hearings, signed by all Republican Members of the Committee,” Collins wrote in a letter to Nadler on Thursday. “You declined repeated requests by Republican Members during the hearing to acknowledge your obligation to schedule such a hearing or to provide any details on your planned schedule for further impeachment proceedings.”

He goes on to say, “considering the haste with which this sham impeachment has been conducted, it is imperative that you contact me or my office as soon as possible to consult on scheduling the requested minority hearing day.”

Earlier this week, the committee heard testimony from four legal experts, three selected by Democrats and one by Republicans, who testified about President Donald Trump’s actions concerning Ukraine. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., later announced that the House will continue working on introducing articles of impeachment.
