House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called out President Trump in announcing the formal inquiry, saying, “The President must be held accountable. No one is above the law.”
What happens next with the impeachment inquiry
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not specify to her colleagues precisely how the impeachment inquiry will play out or divvy up tasks for each of the committees to take on from here.
- Foreign Affairs
- Ways and Mean
- Financial Services
If the Democrats move on with the impeachment, they will provide each one of the aforementioned committees with their input over what they believe should be included in articles of impeachment, which will be introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.
These committees already sorted out the different areas they are investigating months ago…
When the vote happen???
- The House Judiciary Committee will schedule a vote on an impeachment resolution after considering the articles.
- For the House to take action, it has to pass by the House panel.
- If a majority of House members vote for the resolution, then the House will have impeached Trump.
- To convict the President and remove him from office, it would require support from a two-thirds majority of the Senate, a highly unlikely proposition
