The House Judiciary Committee will be holding its first ‘impeachment hearing’ Tuesday at 1:00 ET.
The House Judiciary Panel, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) last week approved procedures for its impeachment investigation into President Trump.
Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to appear before the Democrat-led committee Tuesday to discuss the garbage Mueller report.
“Excited about the opportunity to remind the American people today there was no collusion no obstruction. There were lots of angry Democrats who tried to take down a duly elected President. Tune in. #Senate2020.” Lewandowski said in a tweet Tuesday morning.

Lewandowski is a loyal and devoted supporter of President Trump and most likely won’t give the House Judiciary Committee any new information during the Soviet style show hearing.
Two other White House aides were also subpoenaed along with Lewandowski — Rob Porter and Rick Dearborn — both of whom will not show up Tuesday to the hearing on orders from Trump White House Counsel Pat Cipollone who argued they have ‘absolute immunity’ from testifying.
According to Mueller’s report, Corey Lewandowski was told by President Trump to direct then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to limit Mueller’s investigation and if Session refused, he would be fired.
Mueller’s report then stated that Lewandowski never delivered Trump’s message to Jeff Sessions but asked Rick Dearborn to do it, but the Trump aide refused as well.
The deranged Democrats considered this to be an ‘obstruction of justice episode.’
White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the House Judiciary Committee that Lewandowski will not disclose his private conversations with President Trump and will only discuss what is already publicly available in Mueller’s report.
Nadler held a presser last Thursday where he asserted that the impeachment investigation will go “well beyond the four corners of the Mueller report.”
“Trump’s crimes and corruption extend beyond what is detailed in the Mueller report,” Nadler said last week. “The President is in violation of the emoluments clauses of the Constitution as he works to enrich himself, putting the safety and security of our Nation at risk. He has dangled pardons, been involved in campaign finance violations and stonewalled Congress across the board, noting that he will defy all subpoenas.”
