Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y, for the president or his lawyers to take part in this week's public proceeding.
The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee has called for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to testify before the panel in its impeachment hearing. Democrats are considering an overall "abuse of power" article against Trump, which could be broken into categories like bribery or extortion.
"My first and foremost witness is Adam Schiff", Collins said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday". "I quiz his motives for why he's doing it", Collins stated. But they have put forth numerous arguments against impeachment during the two weeks of public hearings - noting that the aid was ultimately delivered, for instance, and that Trump had good reason to question rampant corruption in Ukraine and put strings on any USA aid delivered there.
The US' House Congressional committee will be reviewing the investigation report of President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry on Monday setting the stage for charges to be filed. He had been invited to attend "directly or through a counsel" by NAME, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
Cipollone said that President Trump can consider participating in future Judiciary Committee proceedings if it is serious about conducting a fair process of going forward. Nadler has given the president a deadline of December 6 to indicate whether he plans on mounting a defense. In an interview with ABC News last month, he said that his tenure on the board was a political error but defended his work in Ukraine and China. "That's his right", he said.
But Cipollone said the inquiry is "baseless", "highly partisan", and "violates all past historical precedent" as well as due process rights enshrined in the Constitution.
Democrats, however, say the probe is anything but. "President Trump has always been concerned about foreign aid".
"Democrats are holding the most ridiculous political trial hearings in history". The president has denied any wrongdoing and has called the inquiry a "witch hunt".

"I couldn't be happier and if I was not as happy as I am, I wouldn't be here", Mourinho said in his first interview to the club's website.
A spokesperson for the Bloomberg campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.
The legal expert, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig, went on CNN's New Day program to explain what he believed would be in the House of Representatives' official articles of impeachment.
The list of desired witnesses House Democrats would like to subpoena to the committee has not been disclosed.
Micklethwait also announced that it would "extend the same policy to [Bloomberg's] rivals in the Democratic primaries", but he told reporters reporters would still be allowed to investigate Trump. "I really think you can handle your own newsroom of immensely talented editors and reporters covering you the same way they do everything else". We all would like to hear from Mick Mulvaney.
"We understand this to mean that your initial hearing will include no fact witnesses at all".
"At base, the president has a choice to make: he can take this opportunity to be represented in the impeachment hearings, or he can stop complaining about the process", Nadler wrote in a letter to Trump.
In order to convict the president, a two-thirds majority in the Senate is required.
Republicans have alternately said Mr. Trump did nothing wrong or that his actions were unfortunate, but not impeachable.
