The House of Representatives voted to formalize impeachment proceedings on Thursday, and they have a heavy slate of witnesses scheduled for testimony this week. Meanwhile, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has indicated he will release transcripts of recent closed-door witness depositions, which means the country -- and the rest of the world -- will get a look at the inner workings of our government.
This comes after President Donald Trump and his supporters have pilloried House Democrats for not doing more of their investigatory work in public. But they may want to be careful about what they wish for. While this newfound transparency is an important part of the impeachment process, it won't be cost-free. In fact, it comes with additional security risks, as our enemies will likely follow these developments -- hoping to glean insights into potential White House weaknesses.
