The House of Representatives voted along party lines Thursday to proceed with the impeachment inquiry, passing a resolution that set the ground rules for its next phase. The resolution authorizes the release of transcripts from the closed-door testimonies that have happened in the House Intelligence Committee, lays out the circumstances under which Republicans can issue subpoenas, allows President Donald Trump legal representation, and paves the way for nationally televised hearings as the inquiry continues.

To discuss all this and more, Jim Braude was joined by former Rep. Michael Capuano, now a public affairs director for Foley & Lardner, LLP, and former Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Donald Stern, who worked alongside Special Counsel Robert Mueller both during his stint with the Department of Justice, and in private practice at the formerly-named Hale and Dorr.
