Congressional hearings are known for being platforms for lawmakers from both parties to have their voices heard while directly questioning witnesses -- but the public hearings in the impeachment inquiry of President Trump, beginning Wednesday morning, will feature attorneys doing some of the heavy lifting in that regard.

Steve Castor, House Intelligence Committee Counsel for the minority, will ask questions on behalf of the GOP. Castor was brought over from the House Oversight Committee by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who recently joined the Intelligence Committee.

Castor is expected to handle the lion's share of the opening questioning for Republicans on the committee. He and ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., will have 45 minutes to question the witnesses.

A 14-year veteran of the House Oversight Committee, Castor was involved in questioning witnesses during the Benghazi investigation and the IRS targeting scandal. He also asked questions during the closed-door sessions at the beginning of the impeachment inquiry.
