The House of Representatives is expected to debate and vote on a resolution offering rules for hearings on the impeachment inquiry, and also outlines powers for Republican members to issue subpoenas.
A resolution vote will be the first of the full House under the formal impeachment inquiry and will put moderate lawmakers from both parties under scrutiny heading into the 2020 election.
The inquiry is attempting to determine whether the president withheld military aide from Ukraine in exchange for an investigation into Trump’s domestic political rivals.
Trump has acknowledged asking Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky to look into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, as well as the origins of a 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
