Good afternoon: Today's PM — edited by Justin Green — is 581 words, a 2-minute read.
🚨 Impeachment vote expected around 7 p.m. EST.
Here's a split screen for the ages: While House Democrats are impeaching President Trump, he'll be firing up supporters at an election rally in Michigan.
Why it matters: This is the perfect encapsulation of the impeachment process.
Vice President Mike Pence jumped ahead to Michigan, bussing around the state, headlining a “Workers for Trump” and visiting a diner and a Christmas-themed shop where he was encircled by elves, Santas, snowmen and diehard supporters.
The other side: Previewing one line you’ll hear a lot more from Team Trump, Pence said the only bipartisan vote you’ll see today is the vote against impeachment, Swan notes from Saginaw, Michigan.
Between the lines: Some centrist Democrats have expressed frustration that Pelosi hasn't provided more support.
The bottom line: There's some irony in Pelosi impeaching Trump.

The stage adaptation of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” written by Aaron Sorkin, is headed to Madison Square Garden, the AP notes.
Why it matters: The move marks the first time a Broadway play has been performed at the venue nicknamed “The World’s Most Famous Arena."
