House will debate impeachment for six hours on Wednesday

A House panel voted to allow six hours of debate Wednesday on articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Lawmakers on the House Rules Committee on Tuesday voted 9-4 along party lines to approve a daylong debate on two articles of impeachment charging Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The House convenes at 9 a.m. Wednesday. Trump is poised to become the third president to be impeached.

Democrats rejected proposed amendments from the GOP, including one that would allow Republicans to hold a minority hearing prior to the impeachment vote.
