Today, Next Week on the Hill: House Managers Wrap Up Opening Arguments in Impeachment Trial

January 24, 2020

House impeachment managers are set to wrap up their opening arguments in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump later this evening. Following the conclusion of the managers’ arguments, White House lawyers are expected to begin presenting their case tomorrow — after which Senators will have up to 16 hours of questioning. The trial could wrap up as early as next week if the Senate does not pursue additional evidence and witness testimony.

Meanwhile, House lawmakers will return from the Martin Luther King Jr. Day district work period on Monday. On the floor next week, the lower chamber will consider a package of bills out of the Financial Services Committee that seeks to reform the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Lawmakers will also consider a pair of measures that seek to limit President Trump’s ability to engage in military offensives against Iran absent Congressional approval.
