In a resolution that stopped short of terming the probe an "impeachment inquiry", Nadler described the ongoing probe as an effort to "determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment" against the President.

Democrats calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment, particularly House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, are more concerned with tearing down the president than they are about building up America as Congress returns from its summer recess, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy claimed on Monday. Evidence would be allowed in private session to protect the confidentiality of sensitive materials, and any full committee or subcommittee hearing could be designated by Nadler as part of the committee's probe into whether to recommend articles of impeachment.

"The adoption of these additional procedures is the next step in that process and will help ensure our impeachment hearings are informative to Congress and the public, while providing the President with the ability to respond to evidence presented against him", Mr. Nadler said in a statement. It would allow committee lawyers to question witnesses for an additional hour - 30 minutes for each side - beyond the five minutes allowed for committee lawmakers.

US President Donald Trump speaks to the press on the South Lawn of the White House before departing in Washington, DC on August 9, 2019. As the Mueller reports states, Lewandowski never delivered the message and instead asked former deputy chief of staff Rick Dearborn to do so.

But the approach has been criticized by Republicans for avoiding a precedent from the Nixon and Clinton eras, when formal impeachment inquiries were authorized by the full House. "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 president remains the subject of investigations from a number of congressional committees, including the House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight Committee.

The Judiciary Committee took similar steps to outline the rules for its impeachment inquiries into Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

Aside from reviewing his use of Trump's properties, the Judiciary panel is also expected to investigate hush money payments Trump made to kill potentially embarrassing stories, and has subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security to explore whether the president offered pre-emptive pardons for lawbreaking. Despite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's public comments supporting the panel's investigation, privately she has told members that the issue is a loser without strong public sentiment.

House panels are probing Vice President Mike Pence's stay at Trump's Doonbeg golf course and new revelations of military stopovers at the president's Irish and Scottish clubs.

In addition, the panel will be able to accept evidence in closed meetings, and Trump's team can respond in writing to evidence and testimony presented to the committee. However, she said that the committee has her support and that it is executing the party's demands.

They allege that Trump and Giuliani have pressured Kiev to prosecute Ukrainians who provided evidence against Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort in the Russian Federation meddling investigation.
