28. Civics

knowledge would then require you to note that timing during the impeachment of Bill Clinton. The timeline here - https://www.theguardian.com/world/1998/nov/18/clinton.usa

September 9, 1998
Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr releases his report to Congress. It has 11 possible grounds for impeachment. The House votes to make the 445-page report public.

September 11, 1998

Congress makes the report public.

***ONE "SLOW" MONTH LATER***

October 5, 1998
The House Judiciary Committee votes to launch a congressional impeachment inquiry against President Clinton.

October 8, 1998
The House of Representatives vote for impeachment proceedings to begin against Clinton. The House judiciary committee will be given wide powers to draw up detailed charges against Mr Clinton, based on 11 allegations by the independent counsel Kenneth Starr in his report on the Monica Lewinsky affair.


***TWO MORE "SLOW MONTHS" LATER*** with hearings and delays, votes occur for articles to be voted out of committee and sent to the full House for final debate and a vote.

Right now, Democrats are at the very beginning, with what is basically "incomplete" (highly redacted) information based on how they received the Mueller Report (vs what happened almost 21 years ago), and the Mueller report was only given to Congress last Thursday (5 days ago).
