House impeachment vote, college football early signing period: 5 things to know Wednesday

Trump lashes out ahead of historic House impeachment vote

A House debate on President Donald Trump’s impeachment is expected to begin Wednesday morning. It will be only the third time in history that the chamber debates impeachment recommendations from the Judiciary Committee. On Tuesday, the House Rules Committee voted along party lines to pass rules governing the floor debate about whether to impeach Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Pa., introduced the rules, which allow for six hours of debate on the articles of impeachment, which will be voted on and argued separately. Meanwhile, Trump sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter expressing his “most powerful protest against the partisan impeachment crusade” and urging her not to hold a vote on charges against him.
