ICYMI: US House of Reps. To Vote On Trump Impeachment Procedures

The United States House of Representatives will vote on Thursday on a resolution that formalizes the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, including upcoming public hearings, according to a senior Democratic aide.

The measure will “lay out the next steps for the inquiry,” the aide told AFP Monday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi informed fellow Democrats about the plan, which appears aimed at pushing back against Trump and Republicans who have argued an impeachment proceeding lacks authorization without a full floor vote.

“This resolution establishes the procedure for hearings that are open to the American people… outlines procedures to transfer evidence to the Judiciary Committee as it considers potential articles of impeachment, and sets forth due process rights for the President and his Counsel,” Pelosi wrote in her letter to lawmakers.
