Impeachment: The next steps

On all that damage in a few minutes 3 3 this morning-- president trump became the fourth president in u-s historyto face an impeachment vote in the u-s house of representatives.

The house judiciary committee reconvened this morning... and approved the two articles of impeachment against the president.

Yesterday's hearings lasted over 14 hours... but this morning's vote went quickly... every democrat voted yes... and all republicans voted no.nightside producer stevee chapman has been following this process closely... and is giving us a look at what we can expect in the coming days and weeks.

(stevee)those newly-approved articles of now make thier way to the house of representatives for a full vote..and we won't have to wait much longer to get there... the vote is set for wednesday-- top democrats want to make sure it happens before d-c lawmakers take off for the holiday break.

Like today's committee vote... like today's holiday break.

Off for the lawmakers take before d-c sure it happens want to make top democrats for wednesday-- the vote is set get there... much longer to have to wait and we won't for a full vote..

Representatives of way to the house now make thier way to the house of representatives and we won't have to wait much longer to the vote is set for wednesday-- top democrats sure it happens before d-c lawmakers take off for the holiday break.

Like today's committee vote... the full house vote will have a democratic majority..

And is expected to pass along party lines.if that happens... president donald trump would become the áthird president in u-s history to be impeached.

From there-- the process moves on to the senate.while it's the house's job to investigate and charge a president for impeachable offenses... it is the senate who decides if he is convicted on those articles.

In the senate-- removing a president from office requires a two-thirds majority vote... and with republicans in control..

It would take around 20 republicans to break party lines and vote to convict... along with every single democrat..

That's an unlikely outcome...just last night-- senate majority leader mitch mconnell said the president's aquittal is a sure thing.

Mcconnell: there's no chance the president is going to be removed from office.mcconnel says we'll have to wait until after the new year for that trial to begin... and when it does-- republicans say they want it to be a fast process, lasting only about two weeks.

To keep things speedy they may not even call on witnesses...of course we'll keep you updated as this continues to play out... until then-- i'm stevee chapman... 4 news nightside.
