The House will vote to impeach a president of the United States for only the third time in history. It‘s been a tumultuous journey to get to this point and is sure to lead to blockbuster moments.
What time is the impeachment vote?
The whole House will gather to begin debating on two articles of impeachment at 9 a.m. But don’t expect a result too soon after. Members will have six hours to debate, and the final vote is predicted to take place between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.
If the House votes to impeach the president (as it has indicated it will), the Senate will take up the case. Each senator will serve as a juror and Chief Justice John Roberts will preside. That means the five senators currently running for the Democratic presidential nomination will have to return from the campaign trail to determine whether to remove Trump from office.
Impeachment managers — members of the House selected by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — will present the articles of impeachment and serve as prosecutors in the case.
