As Impeachment Inquiry Moves Into Open Phase, Here's What To Expect Next

The impeachment inquiry enters a new open phase with a House vote on a resolution formalizing the impeachment inquiry. The measure drafted by House Democrats lays out the ground rules for public hearings, provides procedures for the president and his counsel to respond to evidence and sets out the process for considering articles of impeachment in the Judiciary Committee and the full House.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the vote in a letter to House Democrats this week after weeks of noting that there is no requirement for a full House vote. The move means that the House is another step closer to voting on articles of impeachment against President Trump.

House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern, D-Mass., the author of the House resolution, told NPR that the vote means the House is "entering a different phase" on the impeachment process. He said that he expects Democrats to be largely united on the vote and that when he briefed the caucus on the details, he stressed that "a clear transparent process was important."

If the House passes the articles and votes to impeach, the process then heads to the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said that if the House approves articles and transmits them to the Senate, he will begin the process of holding a trial and ultimately a vote on whether to acquit or remove the president.

To all my DU Family "it" is starting today and not unless I'm wrong the evidence
will be so overwhelming that in the end the republicans in the senate will have to vote
to convict and remove Trump.

2. A "normal" person would certainly vote in favor of impeaching tRUMP but the reTHUGS

aren't normal. They've shown us over the years who they are, ideologues who put party over country
and perform treasonous acts directed against the US, its laws/institutions and citizens. I think they'll circle the wagons, figuratively, to protect tRUMP and their own skanky butts and choose to go down
all together. At this point they've got nothing left.

3. Any chances?

Any chance there are rethugs in the House that would vote to impeach, or Dems that will vote against?
