Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sure they do. Here are two more.

House Committee on Rules
Majority party in this chamber makes its rules. The majority can and does change rules at any time in committee, often ratified by quorum.
Senate Committee on Rules and Administration
Majority party in this chamber makes its rules. The majority can and does change rules at any time in committee, often ratified by quorum.

Referring to 45-year-old house or senate rules (1974, 1998) for guidance to impeachment procedure (2019) is nonsensical. The majority party in the house can define "high crimes and misdemeanors" (articles of impeachment) however they want. The US constitution does not require the senate to proceed from referral of articles by the house. Also, impeachment is not a trial. It's a morality play for public consumption. I for one have been looking forward to the curtain rising since 1 Jan 2019.

How do legislators of the Netherlands remove a PM from office? Does the assembly form a committee to draft rules of order once per GE or each session? Or are such rules codified in the constitution of the Netherlands?
