LIVE UPDATES: Trump Impeachment

…………………………..

House begins session

The House of Representatives has opened its session, and Democrats are getting ready to impeach President Trump over last week’s deadly attack on Congress.

The Democrats have a majority in the House, so the vote later on Wednesday on whether to impeach Mr Trump for the second time is expected to pass.

Here’s what we can expect as the day progresses

There’ll be an hour of debate on the rule of the session, split between the two parties. Then, lawmakers will vote on the rule.

We’ll then move into two hours of debate on the impeachment article itself.

The final vote on impeachment should last around an hour. We’re expecting that to begin around 1600EST/2100GMT.

They have just gone into a short recess. But there’s lots to come, so stay tuned.

Over on Capitol Hill, National Guard troops have been deployed to protect lawmakers and staffers amid the impeachment vote, in response to the violence last week that has left five people dead.
