“It is important that we act, and it is important that we act in a very serious and deliberative manner,” Representative Jim McGovern told CNN in an interview on Monday.
In that case, his committee will provide a rule to bring that legislation to the House for a vote and, 24 hours later, the committee will then bring another resolution to deal with impeachment.
“What this president did is unconscionable, and he needs to be held to account,” McGovern said.
