Before a historic vote on two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, a House clerk read the rules that were previously adopted by the House Rules Committee earlier in the week. Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., the second highest ranking Republican in the House, offered a rejection after the rules were read, raising the GOP-led argument that Democrats have broken the rules and haven't given Republicans enough opportunity to have their own hearings amid the impeachment inquiry. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., rejected Scalise's move, saying it wasn't a point of order. Scalise didn't appeal DeGette's ruling. The two articles charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. If passed, the process will then head for a trial in the Senate, where Republicans have a majority.
