As House Democrats continue to push toward impeachment against President Donald Trump, there is growing speculation on how the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate will react when it reaches court.

Ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R-CA), emphasized a 'wait-and-see approach' to the proceedings.

Nunes described how Democrats and the media would endeavor to put their narrative to the storylines, adding that the recently released transcript from the closed House Intelligence Committee impeachment hearings revealing the testimony was “devastating to the Democrats.”

“Let’s see how this goes this week,” Nunes stated.

“My guess is it’s going to be a complete circus. We’re not going to get any of our witnesses," he added.

"The mainstream media is going to say how damaging it is to the president. That’s just going to be the storyline," Nunes continued.

"But the fact of the matter is if you actually read these transcripts and Gregg Jarrett was just going through them … these transcripts as we were saying when the Democrats were slowly leaking them out to their friends in the media – that’s what we’ve been doing for the last six weeks," he added.

"But now that the transcripts are out, they’re devastating to the Democrats. So, let’s see where this goes."

"But at the end of the day, the Senate should be calling all these people in as soon as possible" Nunes concluded.

On Friday, Nunes formally requested that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., testify in a closed-door setting as part of the Democrats' impeachment inquiry.

According to the letter written by the committee Ranking Member, he demands that Schiff appear for a deposition in private before lawmakers.

Nunes wrote Friday:

"On November 6th, you announced the beginning of public hearings associated with the Democratic Party's partisan impeachment inquiry into President Donald J. Trump."

"Based on the precedent and lack of jurisdiction, the House Intelligence Committee should not take the lead in conducting such hearings; however, by now, the American people know your desire to see the duly-elected president removed from office outweighs your sense of responsibility to running a functioning intelligence oversight committee."
