11:41

In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber breaks down House Democrats’ newly-released rules which could govern the process by which they continue their impeachment inquiry into President Trump. Melber highlights three new and important bits of information, including procedures to allow for open hearings with committee lawyers, polices to enable Trump and his legal team to participate in the inquiry, and language that leaves the door open for ongoing debates about how broad articles of impeachment should be. Melber highlights how despite Trump’s criticisms, Democrats have actually outlined a process which gives him more power to participate than Presidents Nixon or Clinton had.
