10:36 pm
practice it would have proved virtually impossible for anybody but we've seen both the opposition but also the government trying to use parliamentary procedure to their advantage which has meant that in certain situations the speaker bercow in a situation has has been put in a tricky position and has had to make quite controversial decisions. he may have been a conservative m.p. but bercow gathered many enemies on the progress of benches of parliament they accused him of being biased against them because he ruled that the government couldn't keep trying to pass bricks at legislation after losing votes on it my ruling is therefore that the motion will not be debated today as it would be repetitive and disorderly but in reality he was only a paying the rules is just the dregs it has become so disorderly itself that any decisions he took a bound to be divisive he was the person who facilitated this. referendum process

10:50 pm
representatives is due to vote on measures to throw the process open to the public and set up the next steps and if the house ultimately votes to pursue impeachment it would require a simple majority to trigger a trial in the republican controlled senate and that trial would be presided over by the chief justice of the u.s. supreme court 2 thirds of the $100.00 senators then be needed to vote in favor of conviction for donald trump to be removed from office the congress has only ever conducted 2 impeachment trials one of which was for bill clinton but both presidents were acquitted richard nixon resigned in 1974 during the watergate scandal before the house could vote in a moment we'll go to capitol hill in washington d.c. . more about how the day's events will play out but 1st let's go to our white house correspondent kimberly how get in as the house debates before the vote committee the white house has had plenty to say about this impeachment if it. yeah there is no official event on president donald trump's public schedule however he has taken
10:51 pm
to twitter as he often does a series of friends it suites in advance of this vote making his case that he has committed no wrongdoing in fact he even said read the text transcript the transcript of his release by the white house of his july telephone call with the ukrainian president where he says there was no quid pro quo never does he say he offered to withhold aid in exchange for. the promise of an investigation into one of his political rivals so the president on social media is saying that republicans need to stand together against what he calls smears he says there's been no crime in fact he calls this a show trial saying that this would be a long drawn out trial in the senate would merely validate perpetuate the fraud began in the house the crisis is of the democrats own making it's up to republicans to make sure this doesn't happen in other words he's framing this as something that
10:52 pm
is partisan something that the democrats been trying to do since the day that he was 1st elected and brought into the white house committee thank you for that finale that's going to help live and washington d.c. will no doubt be going back to her after the house votes now us democrats on system to the impeachment investigation is fair and transparent a resolution allows for greater member participation then under past impeachment proceedings procedures including a robust process for the minority to propose witnesses and even issue subpoenas if authorized break them by committees and let me just say i think that the fact of the matter is i don't think there is any process that we can propose that republicans who prefer to circle the wagons around this president and prevent us from getting to the truth would accept the republicans according for the process to be voted down. put a ribbon on the sham process does it make it any less of a sham never forget how this whole thing started democrats are trying to impeach
10:53 pm
the president of the united states 13 months before an election based on anonymous whistleblower americans understand that this is unfair americans get fairness they instinctively know this is unfair and partisan process they will see how unfair part is today when the vote happens on the floor of this house. that's going to cost her she's in washington's capitol hill where congress sets and the vote aside there's more testimony today in the investigation heidi interestingly from a national security council former national security council official who resigned on wednesday just yesterday. that's right just on the eve of his testimony to morrison who is the russian expert on the national security council just last night announced his impending resignation he's still at the moment technically a white house employee but he has defined the white house order by appearing right now behind closed doors to the pietschmann inquiry panel and investigators have
10:54 pm
been have been looking forward to questioning morrison because he was named by previous witnesses as a primary source of information on the inside thinking of president trump as he was withholding this military aid for ukraine while his surrogates were undergoing this were carrying out this shadow campaign to get ukraine to open investigations on trump's rivals in fact morrison was said to say that he had a sinking feeling when he heard trump deny that there was a probe but at the same time request that the president of ukraine go to a microphone and publicly announced that there were investigations that were about to be launched so morrison again is testifying now behind closed doors and concurrently of course the other thing we're watching is this vote that could happen in the next hour or so and as you heard from both sides of the aisle there it is likely to fall along partisan lines of course democrats have the numbers to
10:55 pm
get this measure passed so the question isn't so much whether or not it will happen but how many republicans will come along and i should point out that in previous impeachments of u.s. presidents there has been a bipartisan effort to launch the inquiry phase. that may not be the case for don. thank you believe a lot is from the u.s. house of representatives where adam schiff who's the house intelligence committee chairman is speaking let's listen in about the efforts to secure political favors from ukraine who have provided important testimony about the efforts to secure political favors from ukraine we have reviewed text messages among key players which show how securing political investigations was placed at the forefront of our foreign policy towards ukraine this resolution sets the stage for the next phase of our investigation one in which the american people have the opportunity to hear from the witnesses firsthand we will continue to conduct this inner inquiry with
10:56 pm
the seriousness of purpose that our task deserves because it is our duty and because no one is above the law and speaker i urge passage of the resolution and i yield back gentleman yells back gentlemen from oklahoma. thank you madam speaker i yield one minute to my good friend from the great state of texas mr babbitt gentleman is recognized for one minute think. so we were listening there to the house intelligence committee chairman adam schiff who was talking about the resolution saying that it sets the stage for the next phase of investigation one and what american people will have the opportunity to hear from witnesses firsthand adding that no one is above the law let's get more on this knowledge oin by casey big at president senior fed on the governance project of the austrian street institute it's a libertarian think tank and he's joining us live from washington d.c. thank you very much for staying with us on al-jazeera as we cover this the votes in the u.s.
10:57 pm
house of representatives what do you think you know nancy pelosi putting the impeachment procedure to the vote in the house tell us about how confident the democrats are with the findings so far have been investigated. say what you want about speaker pelosi but she's she's no dummy when it comes to getting things done with her caucus she's held tight she's postponed. the investigations in general and this vote longer than a lot of her caucus was calling for even publicly so her throwing it on the floor today is a clear signal that they're confident they have the votes but as the lead in mentioned everyone's watching for how many democrat defectors there are and if if the democrats can pick up any moderate or vulnerable republicans to to join the democratic days to get this thing rolling you know that will be very interesting to see wanted because as we were hearing from our correspondent heidi previous they haven't been many impeachments before only 2 impeachment proceedings but both were
10:58 pm
seen at least to be bipartisan so it won't be interesting to see how many democrats voted against this motion and how many republicans wanted for it. and this is again i apologize i want to interrupt you because we are hearing from nancy pelosi now let's listen in to her provide for the common defense promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our prost their posterity do ordain and establish this constitution of the united states it goes on immediately to establish article one the legislative branch article 2 the executive branch article 3 digit to share the genius of the constitution a separation of powers 3 co-equal branches of government to be a check and balance on each other and yes to that that we take the oath of
10:59 pm
office we gather here on that opening day with their families gathered around to proudly raise our hand to protect and defend the constitution of the united states . and that is exactly what we are doing today sadly this is not any cause for any clearly comfort this is something that is very solemn that is something prayerful and that we had to gather so much information to take us to this next step again this is a solemn occasion nobody i doubt anybody in this place or anybody that you know comes to congress to take the oath of office comes to congress to impeach the president of the united states unless his actions are jeopardizing
11:00 pm
our honoring our oath of office so i'm grateful to our committee chairs for all of the careful and thoughtful investigation they have been doing as this inquiry has proceeded and today the house takes the next step forward as we establish the procedures for open hearings conducted by the house intelligence committee so that the public can see the facts for themselves this resolution ensures transparency advancing public disclosure of deposition transcripts and outlining the procedures for the transfer of evidence to the just committee to use in its proceedings it enables effect of public hearings setting up procedures for the questioning of written ases and continuing the precedent of giving the minority the same rights in questioning witnesses as the majority which has been true at every step of this inquiry despite what you might hear from an aging there.
