- The House of Representatives is in session to debate two articles of impeachment against President Trump before final votes on each later Wednesday (Today, 18.12.2019)
- Mr. Trump is likely to become just the third president in American history to be impeached.
The House convened at 9 a.m. to proceedings debate leading up to the final impeachment votes. After an hour of debate on the “rule” governing the proceedings, six hours of debate on the articles will be divided equally between Democrats and Republicans, who could introduce procedural obstacles that would stretch the proceedings into the evening.
Once the debate has concluded, the House will vote on each article of impeachment separately: first the article accusing Mr. Trump of abuse of power, followed by a vote on the article alleging obstruction of Congress.
Should the articles pass as expected in the Democratic-controlled House, it would make Trump only the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. The hearing is expected to begin at 9 a.m.
