No. While a select committee can recommend that articles of impeachment be brought, it cannot bring charges (articles of impeachment) or conduct the impeachment trial. Articles of Impeachment are brought by the full House of Representatives, and the impeachment trial is conducted by the Senate with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding.
