DEMS/HOUSE OF REPS/IMPEACHMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday [10-30-19] will begin building a formal political process designed to impeach a President — a momentous task attempted only three times before in nearly two and a half centuries of US history. The Democratic-led House Rules Committee will sit at 3 p.m. ET to consider a resolution on the scope and regulations of an inquiry into whether President Donald Trump misused his authority by seeking political favors from Ukraine. The meeting, ahead of an expected full House vote Thursday, is the first time the Democratic majority will go on the record in their attempt to oust the President — and is also the first step toward open hearings. It could pave the way for the impeachment of Trump by the end of the year. A formal path toward that outcome would add perhaps the only missing element of drama to a political era that has seen a President consciously tear at the country’s long-accepted political and legal norms, leaving his opponents puzzled about the best way to restrain him.”
