It took only about an hour for House Speaker Paul Ryan to clear his own house for Trump.
House Republicans held their first public hearing on the president on Monday and then began their own investigation into Russia’s election interference.
Trump had been in a coma since the Aug. 9 incident in which he fainted at the White House and then suffered a massive stroke.
His condition has improved but he remains in a medically induced coma.
But the Republican-led House of Representatives has yet to complete its investigation into the allegations against the president and has not issued a report.
Ryan’s team says the committee will have to complete an additional 10 days before it can complete its work.
But he said he believes the committee has the resources it needs to complete the report and the report has been scheduled for a Thursday vote.
Ryan has said the committee’s investigation will “move forward as quickly as possible.”
Ryan said the panel’s work will be completed by Friday.
He added that he believes “it will be done in a manner that’s consistent with the public’s confidence in the integrity of the American process.”
The Republican leader also said the probe will be “a thorough and thorough investigation, and that will be consistent with our standards and protocols.”
Ryan’s decision to take the unusual step of calling the House Republican conference meeting is a signal that the investigation is moving forward and that Republicans will not be satisfied until the president is out of the hospital.
Ryan said it was “highly unlikely” that the president will recover in time for the vote.
But his comments on Monday were met with skepticism from some Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill.
“I’m not sure this is something that can happen in the middle of a legislative session, but we have to be prepared,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee.
“The president is in a very critical condition.
We will continue to follow all avenues of investigation.
And we will have a thorough, bipartisan, independent investigation.”
