Meet Steve Castor, the attorney handling questioning for GOP during impeachment hearings

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.

On the other side of the aisle, Democrats will have former federal prosecutor Daniel Goldman and Daniel Noble questioning witnesses. Goldman was an assistant U.S. attorney with the Southern District of New York from 2007 to 2017. During his time with the SDNY, Goldman prosecuted defendants linked to Russian organized crime and a leader of the Genovese Crime Family, according to a bio for the Brennan Center for Justice, where Goldman has served as a fellow.

While these attorneys are expected to be featured players, committee members will have five minutes each to question during the latter portion of the hearings as well.
