And specifically it mentions this -

McGahn was mentioned more than 150 times in Mueller's report and provided damaging accounts to investigators about how the president pressured him to oust the special counsel and then pushed him to publicly deny the episode. McGahn's lawyer, William Burck, began discussions with the House Judiciary Committee about his potential testimony after the panel issued a subpoena Monday, according to people familiar with the matter. Securing McGahn's testimony would be a boon for the Judiciary Committee, which hopes to focus on potential obstruction of justice by Trump in a series of public hearings this spring while exploring other "abuses of power," Democratic aides said.

Meaning that the hearings are pretty much imminent. Getting McGahn to testify would be the meat of "obstruction of justice" which would be a significant part of impeachment.

So again - they have already started laying the groundwork for the hearings that will be going on from now until whenever. But I wouldn't hang my hat on attempting to hold hearings without witnesses and then performing blabby theatrics for hours like the Issas and Gowdys and Jordans of the GOP. You want legal substance to nail someone to the wall without a doubt.
