Elite Daily Reports: What Are Articles Of Impeachment? The House Decides What Charges Trump Will Face
On October 31st, the House of Representatives voted to formalize their impeachment inquiry into Trump's quid pro quo.
Now that the House has voted to formalize its impeachment inquiry, six different House committees will continue their investigations in a more public way. On Oct. 29, the House Rules Committee issued a resolution laying out how these investigations and hearings would operate, and it was that resolution the House voted to adopt on Oct. 31. But for the House to actually vote on impeachment, the Intelligence Committee must complete its investigation and send a report to the House Judiciary Committee, which will then come up with the articles of impeachment.
In other words, the articles of impeachment is a formal document that outlines the charges that justify impeachment for Trump.
Once it has drawn up the articles of impeachment, the Judiciary Committee will have to vote on each article. Only articles that receive a majority vote in the Judiciary Committee will be passed along to the rest of the House. Once the House takes up the articles of impeachment, it will debate and vote on each one. If the House obtains a majority vote of more than 50% on even one of the articles, then Trump will be impeached.
