WASHINGTON (AP) — House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff says the panels investigating impeachment could begin releasing transcripts of closed-door witness depositions early next week.

It’s part of an effort by Democrats to move the investigation into public view and allow Americans to evaluate the evidence about President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

Schiff, who is leading the impeachment probe, said in an interview Friday with The Associated Press that the committees will begin releasing transcripts as they conduct more depositions with other witnesses and prepare for public hearings.

Impeachment investigators have already heard from a series of current and former officials from the State Department and White House. They have testified about their concerns over Trump’s repeated efforts to have Ukraine investigate political rival Joe Biden and the Democrats.

    Schiff lied about having solid evidence of Trump colluding with Russia, about NOT knowing about the whistle blower and about what was said during the Ukrainian call. Schiff has lied to the American people so many times, how are we to know if the transcripts are accurate and that they didn’t drop a sentence or word?
    This is EXACTLY why the interviews/depositions should have been done IN PUBLIC.
    Democrats have been proven to be pathological liars and cannot be trusted.
