The House will vote on Thursday to formalize the procedures of its impeachment probe into Trump.
So what happens after that? House Democrats are discussing a time frame that would include public impeachment hearings before Thanksgiving and votes on whether to impeach Trump by Christmas, according to multiple Democratic sources.
However, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi did not put a time frame on it at a closed-door leadership meeting yesterday to discuss the resolution and she has been hesitant to do so, as the timing is subject to change depending on how witnesses cooperate or if additional leads come up, according to multiple Democrats.
Remember, the impeachment process can take months. Take the three presidents who have faced impeachment as examples:
  • For Andrew Johnson, the entire process lasted 94 days. From first congressional action to Senate acquittal, it lasted from February 22, 1868 to May 26, 1868.
  • For Richard Nixon, it lasted 184 days. The House approved the impeachment inquiry on February 6, 1974 and Nixon resigned.
  • For Bill Clinton, it lasted 127 days. The House approved the impeachment inquiry on October 8, 1998, and the Senate acquitted him on February 12, 1999.
