I kind of liked the play in the title, but I'm happy to change it if it's
confusing. Also the due date has been fixed.

Yes, exactly.

Is "adoption of a House Resolution constituting articles of impeachment"
more precise than "will be impeached by the House of Representatives?" I
would guess that more people would understand "be impeached," and that's
the way it would be described in the media, in such an eventuality, but I
could be persuaded otherwise.

I don't know that it's necessary -- in both cases it would simply be false
that Trump was impeached. But if that seems ambiguous, we could add more
verbiage. I'd worry, though, that listing other eventualities would cause
people to overthink it, instead of it just being a simple yes/no decision.
