. You can watch via cable news CNN CSPAN MSNBC PBS or their online sites, apps, youtube channels, or twitter live
. Major networks ABC CBS NBC will likely break regular programming when vote is concluding
. Andrew Johnson was impeached (essentially) over the contentious battle of reunification after the Civil War. It’s long and complicated.
. Bill Clinton was impeached for lying about a consenting sex affair
. TRE45ON is being impeached for bribing a foreign nation to investigate his (perceived) greatest political rival in the upcoming 2020 election. The Constitution actually states, Don’t Do That.
. The House GOP shouty white men compared T45 impeachment hearings to the Salem Witch Trials, the crucifixion of Jesus, the trial of Socrates, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Stalin, a lynching, and so on
#Trump blocked his aides from testifying and refused to release a single document. He stonewalled, #MsCheney. He has called upon foreign nations to interfere in our elections repeatedly and in public. He should have been removed with the words,”Russia, if you’re listening!”— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) December 19, 2019

#ImpeachmentDay is truly sad occasion.— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) December 18, 2019
Donald Trump is a desperately corrupt man who has betrayed his supporters, those who oppose him, the constitution, and our great nation.
He is unfit for the office of the President and must be impeached and removed.
If you want to make the #ImpeachmentDay hearings even more interesting, imagine if these Congresspeople had to give these speeches while under oath.— John Fugelsang (@JohnFugelsang) December 18, 2019

Every member of Congress is bearing his/her soul today in the House Chamber of the US Capitol and on national TV. Every one of them. Beautiful. Horrible. Incredible. America is watching.— Jeffrey Wright (@jfreewright) December 18, 2019
