Live updates: House votes on impeachment of President Donald Trump

WASHINGTON (WFLA) – The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on impeachment.

After a month of debate, the House will finish its argument Wednesday and likely vote on the two articles of impeachment brought against President Donald Trump. The House Rules Committee voted to approve six hours of debate on the House floor Wednesday: three hours each for Democrats and Republicans.

President Trump faces articles of impeachment related to his conduct in connection with Ukraine, one charging him with abuse of power and another charging him with obstruction of Congress.

Join host J.B. Biunno and political reporter Evan Donovan beginning at 5:45 a.m. Pacific Time for a breakdown on the impeachment vote.

Trump, who would be just the third U.S. president to be impeached, on Tuesday fired off a furious letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi denouncing the “vicious crusade” against him, but he also acknowledged he was powerless to stop the expected outcome.

If the House votes Wednesday to impeach Trump, as expected, the process then moves to the Senate, which would then hold a trial early next year. The Senate is expected to acquit the president.
