Impeachment Hearings Resume to Set Rules for Wednesday’s Vote
Impeachment proceedings resume this morning, this time the House Rules Committee will take up the procedural questions involved before the vote by the full House of Representatives on the two Articles of Impeachment. CBSN has this blurb and the live stream once the festivities get underway:
The House Rules Committee will meet Tuesday morning to set the length and terms of debate on the House floor over two articles of impeachment against President Trump, setting up a historic vote later in the week.
The Rules Committee will meet at 11 a.m. to determine whether there will be any votes in the full House on amendments to the articles, and how many hours of debate there will be. The debate in the meeting will likely revolve mostly around the procedure of the impeachment process, with some rehashing of arguments from Democrats and Republicans about the president’s conduct and the whether it rises to the level of an impeachable offense.
The House is expected to vote to impeach the president on Wednesday, in what would be just the third impeachment of a president in U.S. history.
