The House of Representatives will vote on a resolution to formalize the procedures required to announce the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump on October 31. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said this on Monday, CNN reports.
"This resolution establishes the procedure for hearings that are open to the American people, authorizes the disclosure of deposition transcripts, outlines procedures to transfer evidence to the Judiciary Committee as it considers potential articles of impeachment, and sets forth due process rights for the President and his Counsel," Pelosi explained.
According to her, the adoption of this document will allow requiring all the documents necessary to properly investigate the actions of the president, as well as will disprove Trump's accusation of the illegality of the process that Democratic Party congressmen initiated against him.
As we reported earlier, the federal appeals court in New York was hearing oral arguments Wednesday morning in a closely watched lawsuit about President Donald Trump's taxes and whether they'll be turned over to state prosecutors, CNN reports.
After Trump's tax returns were subpoenaed by New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance this summer, Trump's lawyers went to federal court to stop him. A judge dismissed that lawsuit earlier this month, but Trump's lawyers filed an appeal and want the lawsuit to be revived.
