President Donald Trump’s attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has said he will not be impeached.
The White House announced Tuesday that the president has agreed to step down.
However, the Senate is not set to vote until December, which is still several months away.
Senate Democrats say they will block the move, saying it will be an obstruction of justice and a violation of the constitutional right to due process.
Here’s what you need to know about the Senate’s possible response.
The Senate is scheduled to vote on Sessions’ impeachment Monday, but it’s unclear how the Senate will vote on the House of Representatives’ motion to impeach Trump.
Democrats want to know what they can do to stop the move.
Trump, Sessions, and the Democrats President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are in the middle of a hearing into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
They’ve been given the task of trying to figure out why Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey and the extent of his role in the probe.
The president is in the process of signing an executive order to begin the process, according to The Associated Press.
It is unclear if the president plans to sign it and if it will pass the House.
The hearing is the latest in a long line of hearings on Russia, where the White House has accused the Russian government of interfering in the election.
