The domino effect of development that appears to threaten Trump underscores the inertia of the drive for impeachment on the eve of the vote, amid unsuccessful efforts by Republicans on Capitol Hill to halt the process. an even more consistent day, as new evidence from key White House insiders are expected and several court cases can further understand the President's defense.
The Full House will be asked to adopt a resolution setting out the terms and conditions of the impeachment investigation. The measure provides for open hearings and a written report on the case and allows Trump to be represented by minority lawyers and Republicans to call his own witnesses with the majority's consent.
The vote will mark a new peak in the confrontation between Speaker and Cabinet Chairman Nancy Pelosi, two of Washington's most powerful politicians, both of whom may have a career in the battle for impeachment.
Pelosi has resisted the demands of the liberals in the impeachment for months during the controversy over Russian election interference. But it moved quickly against the president after the scandal with Ukraine erupted in the open, although the split could have unpredictable political consequences, especially if it spilled over in an election year.
"Mr Claiber, our whip, gave me a very good report on our vote tomorrow. He is the whip, the vote counter. Thank you, Mr. Claburn," Pelosi said at an event in Washington Wednesday night.
Voting may be difficult for a small body of Democrats who still do not support impeachment, and for party deputies from the constituencies that Trump won in 201
The White House is digging, insisting that Trump has done nothing wrong as expanding contours are cleared up by a scandal triggered by allegations that he abuses his power by seeking political favors from Ukraine.

- Bill Taylor, a top US diplomat in Ukraine, signaled he is ready to return to Washington to testify in public after appearing to name a pro-quo between Trump and Ukraine in deferring a bomb with the door closed last week.
- It turns out that Tim Morrison, Trump's top expert on the National Security Council, is leaving his job – raising expectations for his deposition Thursday on Capitol Hill.
- Three committees of the House investigating the president have invited John Bolton to testify next week. The former national security adviser may be a convincing witness, though it is not clear he will even appear.
