Iran Contra and Watergate hearings - Correct me if I'm wrong

Didnít these hearings start as just hearings?
Why canít we hold hearings and see where everything leads? If they lead to impeachment so be it.

Need to line up the witnesses stat and fill the summer with testimony

a few people went to prison for a short amount of time.

3. Yes, impeachment hearings need to commence immediately

Such hearings will focus the nationís attention on Trumpassís crimes and will undoubtedly uncover new ones.

6. Yes, they started as oversight hearings to get to the bottom of what occurred.

 

There is no need to call for "impeachment" hearings off the bat, just INVESTIGATE.

7. The Senate established a select committee to take

evidence during Watergate. That's the one chaired by Sam Ervin and co-chaired by Howard Baker and the hearings that were televised daily that everyone remembers. The House, iirc, just had hearings via the Judiciary committee, chaired by Peter Rodino.
